10mm x 8mm Raised Aluminium Expanded Mesh Mesh
Expanded metal mesh, fabricated from aluminum, is recognised for its distinctiveness and adaptability across a myriad of uses. This mesh is produced by stretching aluminum metal, which forms a mesh featuring a notable diamond-shaped design. The dimensions of these diamonds are 10mm along the longer axis and 8mm along the shorter axis, offering both symmetry and visual allure.
The mesh has a substantial 2mm thickness, enhancing its durability and fortitude, making it suitable for a host of applications, both structural and ornamental. Despite its strength, the expanded metal mesh is relatively light, weighing in at just 1.7 kg/m2, facilitating ease of handling and installation without compromising on sturdiness.
A key attribute of this aluminum expanded metal mesh is its considerable open area, visually accounting for 42%, which not only adds to its visual charm but also promotes significant light and air flow. This feature is exceedingly advantageous for scenarios that demand good ventilation or natural light penetration. Moreover, the airflow through this mesh registers at 47%, further emphasising its effectiveness in situations that require good air movement, like in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, architectural cladding, and a variety of industrial applications.
This amalgamation of specific features such as pitch, thickness, weight, and openness percentages renders the aluminum expanded metal mesh a highly coveted choice. It satisfies a broad spectrum of requirements, ranging from enhancing security and robustness in industrial contexts to contributing an aesthetically pleasing touch to architectural projects.

We also offer a massive range of perforated metal sheet options from immediate stock. In order to perforated mesh, flat sheet metal is punched with round or square holes. Perforated sheet in application is required. Because the holes are punched, it is possible to have a far stronger finished metal product than it would be for the equivalent thickness in woven or welded mesh. It is an extremely popular alternative to expanded metal mesh.
FAQs For This Product
Is Aluminium Expanded Metal Mesh Corrosion Resistant?
One of the most desirable properties of aluminium expanded metal mesh is its high corrosion resistance. When aluminium is exposed to the atmosphere, an oxide layer forms, providing a protective barrier against environmental elements and preventing corrosion. As a result, aluminium expanded metal mesh is an excellent choice for exterior applications or environments where moisture is prevalent, such as marine or industrial settings. The corrosion resistance of aluminium is substantial, but an additional protective coating may be applied to enhance its durability and longevity in extremely corrosive environments.
How To Cut 10 x 8mm Aluminium Expanded Metal Mesh Properly?
A clean cut of 10 x 8mm aluminium expanded metal mesh requires precision and the right tools. Measure and mark the area to be cut accurately. To prevent movement during cutting, secure the mesh flat. Tin snips or hand shears are suitable tools for cutting aluminium expanded metal mesh. Angle grinders or power saws with metal cutting blades can be used for larger or more precise cuts. Wear safety gear, such as gloves and eye protection. To ensure a smooth finish, deburr the edges after cutting to remove any sharp fragments.
How To Measure Expanded Mesh For Ordering?
It is important to consider the specific application area when measuring aluminium expanded metal mesh. To determine the mesh size, measure the length and width of the area where the mesh will be installed. If multiple sheets need to be joined, include any overlap necessary. Be mindful of the long way of diamond (LWD) and the short way of diamond (SWD) orientation to ensure the mesh aligns with your application’s requirements. Provide these measurements to the supplier, specifying the total coverage area as well as any custom requirements like finishes or edge treatments. It’s recommended to order a slightly larger size than strictly necessary to account for any on-site modifications.
