Expanded metal ceiling is one of the indispensable materials in modern building design. It not only brings amazing visual effects, but also delivers fireproofing, heat insulation, noise absorption and other practical functions. It is widely used in offices, libraries, shopping malls, airports, railway stations and other public buildings.
It is generally made of aluminum alloy plate and comes in a variety of hole patterns and sizes. Its powder coated, anodized or PVDF coated finish offers an attractive appearance with uniform color.
contact us, our internal design team have rich experience in expanded metal ceiling design and can provide tailor-made ceiling solutions for your projects.
Expanded metal not only brings new, unique visual effects, but also has the following functional advantages:
● Fireproof. Aluminum and stainless steel expanded metal has natural fireproof property and complies with the Code of Practice for Fire Safety in Buildings.
● Beautiful & safe. During installation, certain gap should be left to house ventilation ducts, sprinkler systems and circuits, which not only provides a beautiful appearance, but also creates an air vent to ensure indoor security
Flexible & versatile. The specification of the expanded metal can be tailored to achieve the optimum level of diffused lighting.
Heat insulation. Excellent heat insinuation helps to reduce the cost of indoor air conditioning systems.
Sound absorption. Good sound absorption helps to reduce the noise in the room.
Easy to install and remove. Hang-in systems are used for installation, easy to install and remove and facilitate roof system maintenance.

|Other sizes are available upon request.|
For larger sizes, reinforcement is required to prevent expanded metal panels from sagging.
For expanded metal panel with mesh bending frame, the mesh width shall be equal to the panel width; for expanded metal panel with angle steel frames, bending shall be considered, so the mesh width shall be 4–5 cm smaller than the panel width.
Frame size: aluminum angle: 30 × 30 × 2 mm (thickness); hang-in angle: 30 × 30 × 2 mm (thickness); for panels larger than 1200 × 2000 mm, 3 mm thick is recommended.
Our expanded metal ceiling adopts hook-on system. It not only achieves the design purpose of architects and designers, but also makes the installation easier and roof system maintenance easier.
