The strands and knuckles are set at a uniform angle to the plane of the sheet. This adds strength and rigidity and distributes the load to the supporting frames. Because there are no welds or joins it operates as a structural member that distributes loads evenly over a wide area.
The high strength to weight ratio makes it suitable for many industrial and ornamental applications. No loose strands or welds means minimal deterioration from constant exposure or movement.
A further feature is the provision of an excellent anti-slip surface. This makes the product suitable for ramps (e.g. inclined walkways adjacent to conveyors) platforms and stair treads.
The open nature of the product provides good visibility through the mesh as well as the easy passage of air and sound whilst ensuring security and protection.
