Larger diamond sizes with smaller strand widths have more open areas and are therefore more cost effective, but may be offer less durability and security.
Expanded metal grating or expanded metal mesh is the most practical and economical way to assure strength, safety, and a non-skid surface. Expanded metal grating is ideal for use on plant runways, working platforms, and catwalks, as it is easily cut into irregular shapes and can be installed quickly by welding or bolting.
