MESH SIZE AND SPECIFICATION

The size and dimensions of the various expanded metals we manufacture are given in the table shown below but please note that although the LW (long way of mesh) dimension is constant, the SW (short way of mesh) dimension is approximate and is subject to some variation according to the strand width and strand thickness.

It is conventional practice when ordering to state the SWM (short way mesh) size, the strand thickness and the strand width. The standard sheet size is 8ftX4ft but special lengths and widths can be manufactured on request. Expanded metals can also be supplied in rolls.
