Expanded Metal Infill Panel in Stadium, Bridge, Home, Office Building
Expanded metal infill panel.
Expanded metal infill panel is manufactured by slitting and stretching the metal sheet with a die creating different shaped holes in one step, which can be expanded up to 10 times its original size, creating a product that weighs 80% less while retaining its fundamental rigidity and integrity. Expanded metal infill panels mainly made of stainless steel, aluminium and low carbon steel include two types:
- Raised expanded metal infill panels are pressed, cut and expanded, leaving sharply angled knuckles where the individual strands meet.
- Flattened expanded metal undergoes an additional cold rolling process, creating a smoother surface and a finished product that is about 5% lighter than raised expanded metal.
Expanded metal provides many benefits over other materials. Because it is formed from a single piece of metal, there are no welds or weak points, which makes its structure sound. Unlike perforated metal, there's no waste in producing it, which makes it economical.
