Tilley Expanded Metal is a very versatile product. Lighter per cubic metre and stronger per kg than the sheet of metal from which it is made.

With Tilley expanded metal there is no interweaving, interslotting, brazing or welding.  This means that even when cut into irregular shapes and left unframed, there is nothing to work loose or fray either through vibration or as a consequence of heavy impact.  With no welds or interwoven strands, Tilley expanded metal also shows excellent corrosion resistance.

The knuckles formed by the cutting and expanding process support weight and withstand stress better than joints or welds.

Used as the sides or as inserts in containers it allows air circulation without compromising strength or security.
