Uses and Ideas for Expanded Metal

Expanded Metal, Manchaca Metals

Expanded metal sheets are versatile and come in different sizes and thicknesses to suit various applications. The most common types of expanded metal are raised and flat. Raised expanded metal, sometimes referred to as standard expanded metal, features a textured surface that offers excellent slip resistance, making it ideal for stair treads, flooring, and any application where traction is important. Flat expanded metal undergoes a flattening process to create a smooth surface, which is suitable for applications requiring a more uniform aesthetic.

In addition to raised and flat types, heavy-duty bar grates are another form of expanded metal commonly used in industrial settings such as catwalks, platforms, and walkways. These grates provide robust support and durability, ensuring safety and stability in high-traffic areas. The versatility of expanded metal makes it suitable for a variety of projects, including fencing, grills, patio furniture, trailer hitches, and pet or livestock containment, among other uses.
