Expanded metal screens

Home Louvres Expanded Metal Louvres

Expanded metal screens and louvres are designed as a decorative façade, produced by cutting and stretching of the metal sheet to form regular patterns such as diamonds or hexagons.

Unlike mesh that is woven or welded, the bonds are uniform and solid. The mesh-like sheet metal has various uses in a variety of architectural and commercial applications due to its strength and versatility. It can be a stunning way to showcase design and creativity on a building.

Applications are varied and can include;

  • building façades
  • sunscreens
  • cladding
  • columns
  • ceilings
  • Electronics
  • room dividers (partitions)
  • fences
  • grilles
  • wall panels
  • Walkways
  • automotive
  • plants and more

Expanded mesh screens balance design, ventilation, visibility, and privacy helping to shade or screen your building from the harsh WA sun and winter rains. The raised profile of the expanded metal adds depth to the louvres as well as diffusing light and moderating temperature inside the building.

When including perforations to the design, visibility and open-ratios can be enhanced.
