Heavy Type Expanded Metal with Higher Strength as Screen, Tread, Platform
Expanded Metal can be processed in different opening shapes, typically as: standard rhombic shape, heavy type tortoise-shaped, flattened expanded metal, and some special shapes or designs. Heavy type hexagonal shaped expanded metal, also known as among the tortoise-shaped expanded metal, is a heavy type expanded metal, reinforced compared with the regular expanded metal products. Heavy expanded metal is made of high quality plain steel after being expanded on the automatic expanded machines. Because of the high strength of heavy type expanded metal, it is mostly used as walkways, ramps and catwalks of all types.
Specification of heavy type expanded metal:
- Materials: aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel.
- Hole shapes: diamond, hexagonal, etc.
- Surface treatment: PVC coated, galvanized, powder coated, anodized.
- Colors: green, black, red, yellow, etc.
- SWD: 36 mm – 76 mm.
- LWD: 100 mm – 200 mm.
- Thickness: 3 mm – 8 mm.
- Package: wooden pallet and outer is wrapped by waterproof paper.
Heavy type expanded metal sheet can be used as fences.
Hexagonal heavy type expanded metal can be used for screen machine in coal preparation plants.
Features of heavy type expanded metal:
- Durable-higher strength to weight ration and aging resistance.
- Good corrosion resistance. It won't be hurt in rainstorm or isolation.
- Good rigidity--premium reinforcement properties.
- Anti-rust. With a lot of rustproof surface treatments.
- Used as decorative mesh for building outer wall. Because weight is light enough.
- Visibility and colorful. With simple structure and various colors.
- Heavy type expanded metal with high strength is ideal for uses in ship making, fences, step mesh of oil tanker, heavy machinery, boilers, locomotives, ships, escalators and other working platforms.
- It with non-slip surface is applied to flooring, grating, groove cover, conveying, side passages for conveyors and cranes, walkways, ramps and catwalks.
- For screening, can be used for mineral sifting and in oil mines, plants.
- It can also used as reinforcing for construction, roads, bridges, railway, road, civil building construction and water conservancy project.
- It also can be used in outer wall decoration and chemical industry, as window screen, filter, etc.
Heavy type expanded metal with rough, raised surface can be used as platform in work high above the ground for slip resistance.
Heavy type expanded metal having high strength enough is used as stair treads.
