The expanded metal process takes regular steel or aluminium and expands it into a diamond pattern, making it stronger, lighter and more rigid than it was before.
Tough, unyielding and cost-effective, the ‘large mesh’ range sets the standard in expanded metal solutions. The small mesh range is a comprehensive class of fine, expanded metal meshes for use in applications such as fire-screens, filters, guards and security doors.
Agricultural expanded metal is ideal in rural settings for fencing and security.
Super-rib mesh is used throughout the building industry to assist in strengthening construction materials.
Locker Group produces expanded metal from mild, stainless and galvanised steel; corrosion resistant aluminium; titanium, copper and nickel alloys and much more. Depending on the profile chosen expanded mesh can be flattened to suit your application.
Locker Group’s expanded security mesh offers an ideal fencing solution for high-security environments. Developed in conjunction with the New South Wales Department of Corrective Services, this mesh is used to safe-guard facilities throughout Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Anti-climb features such as the small diamond cut and the ability to add cowling or razor tape, work to prohibit even the most resourceful attempts at escape or infiltration.
More cost-effective than concrete, this product utilises the best available strength to weight ratio and comes with the inherent strength of Locker Group’s expanded steel range. Unlike some fencing it won’t fray or unravel, slashing maintenance costs.
Manufactured specifically for the application, you can rely on Locker Group security mesh and fencing to perform in the most critical implementations in high-security practice.
Uses of Security Mesh include;
- Prison Security Fencing
- Balustrade Panels
- Car Park Enclosures
Locker Group manufactures a number of security mesh options for windows and doors.
DVA is a traditional expanded metal mesh used for repelling insects in doors, and provides one way vision mesh, ie occupants can see out, while visitors are unable to see inside the home. Super RV is a recent addition to the DVA range. Super RV provides the same one way vision properties incorporated into a thicker mesh panel, which has inherent strength to meet the regulations for security mesh. Super RV passes the Australian Standards for both knife sheer and impact, hence it can be used in open frame security doors.
Locker Group also offers a perforated security mesh option, SMAB meets the bushfire codes with small perforations preventing the entry of hot embers penetrating the door. During daylight hours occupants are able to enjoy the view clearly as individual holes are almost invisible to the eye.
