Expanded (also known as Stretch) in the dictionary means widened, extended, and stretched, and is synonymous with the word “Stretch”. In the industry, it refers to a special process for producing metal mesh. This method involves simple cutting and stretching steps, all of which are performed by a single machine, and during which metal sheets are converted into meshes with unique properties without any waste or scraps. The absence of waste and the simplicity of the production process will result in energy savings, reduced production costs, and preservation of the country’s capital.
The produced mesh using the expanded/stretch method differs from other types of mesh in the following ways: A beautiful and unique shape due to the expanded eyelet. Possibility of producing dense and thick texture for special purposes such as expanded metal facades, interior decoration, false ceilings, or load-bearing floors. Increased moment capacity and load-bearing ability due to the edges created in the eyelets, which are specific to expanded mesh.
