Locker’s expanded mesh is suitable for a wide variety of applications, including security doors, sunscreens, and tasteful facades as well as innovative art installations.

Expanded 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. 

Expanded metal mesh has been used in a sweep of interesting ways in structural exteriors for buildings, installed with steel tensioned cables to create an intricate and stunning façade framework. The architectural mesh is also used as a means for ensuring privacy, with larger ribbon widths screening interiors from view. 

The expanded metal sunscreen profile is designed to protect structures from the harsh glare of the sun. It can be applied above windows, entrances, walkways, or along the entire length of a structure’s perimeter. By cutting out glare and making more comfortable use of available light, it becomes an essential component of a productive working environment.

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.

Uses

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.
