Benefits of Expanded Metal Flooring and what to Consider

by Katie Robinson
Expanded metal flooring has several benefits, depending on what you want to achieve. It can offer greater security, provide a safer anti-slip surface and if required, it can act as a drainage solution.

For buildings such as factories, metal flooring can be a quick and cost effective way of installing stairs and walkways without having to undergo any major building works.

We’ve also seen metal mesh flooring and staircases becoming an increasingly popular trend within the architectural community for its decorative qualities. Many residential and commercial developments are now adopting the ‘industrial style’. Our sister company in fact, has completed many of these projects, as they specialise in architectural metal mesh.

So, what should you consider when it comes to installing expanded metal flooring? The main factor to consider with expanded metal floors is their durability - depending on their required use. For example, will they need to support heavy machinery? Or do you need to be able to roll wheeled goods? Do they need to be resistant to chemicals? Or withstand extreme temperatures?

These are all questions that you will need to ask before choosing your industrial flooring. Then we can offer our support to help you find the best material to suit your requirements.
