About the Sponsor
Expanded Metal means versatility. Versatile is the key word describing Expanded Metal. New applications are found for it every day in industry, offices and homes. Expanded Metal allows the design professional the freedom to exercise maximum creativity. Available in different thickness and opening sizes, from micro or fine mesh to grating, Expanded Metal is produced in a variety of metals and other materials. Expanded Metal facilitates the free flow of air, fluid, or light where required. With Expanded Metal, there is no scrap.
In this one-hour course, design professionals will learn about expanded metal, focusing on its manufacture, installation, and application. It will give in-depth knowledge of existing standards and manufacture tolerances as suggested by the Expanded Metal Manufacturers Association. By the end of this course, design professionals will be able to specify expanded metal using industry standards to create sustainable and stylish metal applications.
