Compared with opaque materials, materials that allow air and light to penetrate can provide more design ideas. In the construction field, the Expanded Metal Building Facade is not only the external surface of the building, but also an important indicator of the overall style. A uniquely designed facade is usually memorable.
What is Expanded Metal Building Facade?
It is fabricated from sheet or coil metal that is slit and stretched into a non-raveling unit of uniform-size diamond-shaped openings. The process of slitting and stretching means that waste is eliminated and a huge cost benefit is achieved. In addition, it can also display many different colors through various surface treatments, which is visually impressive. Of course the unique appearance is not the only benefit. The key function of the Expanded Metal Building Facade is to filter out some but not all of the light entering the building. This helps regulate the temperature of the building while still allowing air circulation.
How to choose the right Expanded Metal Building Facade?
The first step is to choose the appropriate expanded metal pattern, while keeping in mind the various product characteristics that may affect the choice. The direction of the diamond pattern also affects air deflection and diffusion. If there are other products used for the same purpose in the building, it is necessary to determine the application range of the Expanded Metal Building Facade within a specific specification.
