Expanded metal mesh used in construction as a reinforcing element for plastering and finishing works, as well as the reinforcement reinforcing floors, ceilings and pavements. It protects
wall against cracks and fissures due to changes in temperature and humidity, and mechanical stress. The expanded plastering mesh increases the mechanical strength of the reinforced surface, including impact resistance. Installation and operation are very simple.

Thickness 0.3-0.6mm Edge width 45-70mm 1m-3m
Expanded metal lath hot galvanized steel Standard angle bead (corner bead) have a smooth round nose bead with diamond mesh wings for the keying of plaster right up to the nose of the bead. On the outside is the finished edge which is where one side of your drywall knife runs on when you are applying drywall mud. The two flanges sit flat on your raw drywall. The diamond decoration along the length of the flange act as a keyway for holding the drywall mud to the drywall and the corner.
This mesh insures a perfect bond and provides effective reinforcement where most needed.
Straight edge nose is easy to install and permits plumb straight outside corners. Excellent protection for corridor corners exposed to traffic. Standard Angle Bead provides straight corners for the walls when used over irregular surfaces.
Standard angle bead is used to effectively terminate plaster edge in a straight line at doors, windows and other openings, also used when plaster meets dissimilar material.
How to order expanded metal
When ordering Expanded Metals, give complete profile specifications to avoid possible error.
When ordering please state:
1) Metal reference
2) Quantity of Sheets
3) Sheet Size (SW dimensions first see diagram)
4) Type of material e.g. steel, aluminium, etc.
5) Finish, e.g. untreated or galvanized
6) Tolerances (if required)
7) Where applicable specify raised or flat
LONG WAY MESH (LWM): The distance from a point on a knuckle to a corresponding point on the following knuckle measured across the long way of the diamond shaped hole. This distance is also sometime referred to as “Pitch” LWM.
SHORT WAY MESH (SWM): The distance from a point on a knuckle to a corresponding point on the following knuckle measured across the short way of the diamond shaped hole. This distance is also sometime referred to as “Pitch” SWM.
LONG WAY OPENING (LWO): Long Way of opening, the distance measured from the inside of the knuckle across to the inside of the knuckle LWO.
SHORT WAY OPENING (SWO): Short Way of opening, the distance measured from the inside of the knuckle across to the inside of the knuckle (SWO).
KNUCKLE: The intersection of two strands and it is always the width of two strands.
OVERALL THICKNESS: The actual measurement of the thickness of the mesh measured at the knuckle. (Dimension ‘A’)
OPEN AREA: The percentage of open area given is approximate. For meshes of the conventional type with strands inclined from the plane of the sheet.
GUILLOTINING: A process carried out after expanding to cut expanded sheets exactly to size (within the guillotining tolerance). Shearing may leave ‘Stags’ on a mesh.
STAG ENDS: Incomplete strands existing beyond the joints of a mesh either LWM, SWM or both.
GALVANISING: Hot dipped galvanizing carried out to IS specifications. Distortion and windowing effect can occur to small steel range through to A, W, E, & LV Sunscreen ranges. Windowing effect is particularly prevalent on flattened meshes.
