Light Colour Expanded metal mesh with stainless steel material for engineering projects
Expanded metal mesh is the perfect blend of visually-appealing, durable industrial product, creating a mesh fit for purpose in a variety of ways. The architectural Expanded mesh is manufactured to client specification and delivered to your site, meaning that you always get a product unique to you and your needs.
How Expanded metal mesh works and is installed
Expanded metal mesh profiles come in a myriad of design styles, with its flexible uses a major draw card for our clients. Manufactured locally in Melbourne, the metal mesh can be custom-designed to match the size and profile of the panelling you want, with different strand widths and mesh openings providing various looks. Larger mesh profiles encourage greater light and airflow, which works fantastically well in interior spaces, while exteriors benefit from louvre shaped profiles which provide sun shading, keeping your structure cool and preventing sun damage.
Securing Expanded metal mesh profiles to structural exteriors is quick and easy, and panels can be manufactured to project specifications with fitting clips provided as required. Alternatively, Locker can provide a complete supply and install service, completing the project within specified timeframes. Our extensive industry experience ensures you receive a product truly fit for purpose and ready for use.
Ways Expanded architectural mesh is used and its benefits
Expanded’s 3D textural finish and industrial edge makes it a popular option for durable sun shading, with the mesh profile excellent at maintaining the right amount of sunlight while keeping the interior of your structure cool and breezy with natural airflow. The architectural mesh is also used as a means for ensuring privacy, with larger ribbon widths screening interiors from view. This means you can use it as an exterior façade for a building that encourages an open-air atmosphere while maintaining your internal privacy.
Expanded metal mesh has been used in a sweep of interesting ways, in both structural exteriors for buildings and innovative art installations. Expanded mesh can be installed with steel tensioned cables to create an intricate and stunning façade framework. Our Project Gallery has excellent examples of the styles of Expanded metal mesh and how they have been used by our clients.

When specifying expanded metal for walkways, industrial or architectural applications, its important to understand how the different aspects of the profile are identified.
Expanded metal is identified using a number of specialised terms.
Product Codes utilise a combination of sheet thickness and strand width to identify the profile.
Expanded Metal Definitions
Long Way Mesh (LWM)
The distance from a point on the knuckle to a corresponding point on the following knuckle, measured across the Long Way. This distance is also sometimes referred to as the pitch.
Short Way Mesh (SWM)
The distance from a point on the knuckle to a corresponding point on the following knuckle, measured across the Short Way.
Long Way Opening (LWO)
Long Way of Opening, the distance measured from the inside of the knuckle across to the inside of the knuckle.
Short Way Opening (SWO)
Short Way of Opening, the distance measured from inside of the knuckle across to the inside of the knuckle.
The intersection of two strands; it is always equivalent to the width of two strands.
The actual measurement of the thickness of the mesh measured at the knuckle. (Dimension A)
