Today, it is difficult to imagine offices and commercial premises without suspended ceilings. The production process of expanded metal endows the expanded metal ceiling with a special character which offers, according to the customer’s requirements, a free or restricted view into the roof cavity. A further advantage is the possibility to optimally illuminate the space under the expanded metal ceiling through, for example, the deflection of artificial or natural light. Interesting variations in light design can be generated when the lights are installed above the lattice construction. The diverse surface structures of our inexhaustible spectrum of mesh variations enable the creation of an unusual ambience. Whether rhombus or square mesh, open or closed system, our wide spectrum bestows an individual appearance upon your premises.
With Aluminium Composite Panel (ACP) covering, your building might look modern, “aesthetic” and boast of superior exterior or interior surface finishing. But what about the walls behind it? Just to save on painting them, ACPs actually smother the walls… making it vulnerable to pests, fungi, dampness, brittleness etc.
Specified for many iconic buildings around the world, Expanded Metal Façade Mesh/Sunscreen Mesh has become a critical tool for the Architects and Designers, not only practical but eye-catching and kinder on environment, too.
The structure of Expanded Metal Façade Mesh/Sunscreen Mesh aides the disruption of sound waves, deadening noise and reduction of echo. These practical features of the material in conjunction with its already proven architectural features make it perfect for both decorative ceiling tiles and acoustic panels and are chosen by designers and architects for their beauty and striking appearance.
As global warming continues to stay, so the resultant air-conditioning units put additional pressure and demand of electricity consumption. With a need to stop this, Expanded Metal Façade Mesh/Sunscreen Mesh offers an excellent solution to the problem, by reducing solar gain through blocking the sun’s rays as it moves through the day and combat the temperature as the light is allowed through in one direction but not the other. Added to this, it also gives an attractive, decorative and acoustic look as the mesh acts as cladding to the exterior walls but it also serves as a sun screen over the windows and create striking visual effects and appearances.
In terms of sheer visual impact, Expanded Metal cladding systems are hard to beat. Combining the best of modern metallic materials, unique patterns and a range of finishes with practical solar and decorative properties, such system allows architects to ensure any new building stays at the very cutting edge of modern building materials technology.
In terms of refurbishment, dull, grey, concrete surfaces can be cladded to review buildings and send them hurtling into the 21st century.
Expanded Metal Façade Mesh/Sunscreen Mesh can be supplied in mild steel, galvanised steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass sheets as per specific requirements and in wide range of openings and thickness. It can be powder coated and painted in various colours.

Interior Designs: Commercial & Residential
It is important for commercial and residential premises to optically communicate its image. The secret lies in the ability to create fittings and fixtures which largely merge with the background. At the same time, the equipment needs to be sufficiently robust to withstand constant heavy strain. The cross-industrial and residential trend is towards transparency and lightness. Expanded metal is therefore the ideal choice for modern architectural systems.
Balcony & Window Guards
are reliable maintenance free protection against vandalism, forced entry, and accidental breakage. These guards protect your windows and buildings, providing fall protection for children. Perfect for areas next to playgrounds, ballfields, low roof setbacks and ground floor windows. Allows full window operation with optimal airflow for areas with restrictions for small children.
This mesh gives security a new character. The close approximation of the mesh openings prevents the use of powerful cutting tools. The high number of nodes necessitates more than three times the number of cuts, when compared to the aforementioned standard mesh, in order to achieve a hole of the same size. This mesh has been tested by diverse judicial authorities and received praise for its optimal penetration protection.
Fencing Design: Choose between open, transparent mesh for fences which allow a view of the premises, or closed mesh to ensure discretion.
The discreet design of the mesh protects you from inquisitive “guests” but nevertheless offers sufficient transparency to prevent having the appearance of a closed wall. Large and small mesh openings are available. The stable metal construction additionally offers high resistance against storm and vandalism.
Sun Screen & Wind Protection Lattices
We have devised a sun protection system with slats made from expanded metal which facilitated a multiple usage: daylight economy, thermal insulation, sun protection and, last but not least, an unmistakeable appearance.
The myriad of individual domes which are created during the expansion of the metal function as innumerable sun protection slats. At close range the individual slats appear transparent in all directions: from the outside to the inside and from the inside to the outside.
Wind protection slats not only caters to fulfil the strictest safety requirements regarding the protection of people, vehicles and buildings against jet stream, but also prevents damage to aeroplanes caused by the reverse circulation of jet stream.
The wind protection lattices are custom-made in accordance with the individual requirements of the airport. The combination of reliable protection and transparency is a particularly strong argument in favour of ASM’s (Asian Streck Metals) expanded metals for this application.
Reinforcement for Non-Structural Applications
Expanded metal is a length of expanded steel mesh with continuity of steel throughout. Has no joints, welds or interweaving to fail under stress. Once mortared into brickwork the diamond shaped meshes are anchored immovably so that the reinforcement cannot slip under tension.
The ‘Dragon scale’ profile (above), is an elegant example of what can be achieved when we work closely with the designer in order to come up with something beautiful and functional. Dragon scale achieves a textural facade with a high open area, while still restricting vision. The privacy of inhabitants is ensured as the light is reflected upward.
(Any type of weathering steel, a steel alloy which does not require painting and acquires a stable, rust-like appearance over time).
We are always looking to expand our product offering to match the creative vision of the designer we work with. Above is our standard Sunshine expanded mesh, manufactured in 3mm Corten, an example of the flexibility of our local manufacturing capability. Utilise an existing profile, but select a different material, or create a unique profile to represent your project, we seek to cultivate your creativity.

DUE TO ALUMINIUM COMPOSITE PANELS, WALLS ARE GETTING SUFFOCATED…
Aluminium Composite Panels have played havoc over years with architectural aesthetics and is the reason why buildings are choking to death with no open surface wall to allow breathing, bear the heat, cold and monsoon rains for its stability.
