Barrier mesh protects against break-ins and break-outs. It safeguards walls and ceilings in homes, apartments, offices, stores, storage areas and correctional facilities.

Expanded metal offers versatility, flexibility, strength, and cost efficiency like no other product. Its infinite patterns and wide variety of materials available mean there are a huge range of applications and industries that can benefit from it.

Meshes of all sizes and materials offer an array of options and advantages, with small, intermediate, and large patterns each serving distinct needs. Yet another popular and important advantage of—and application for—expanded metal mesh is its security; barrier mesh protects against break-ins and break-outs, and keeps people and facilities safe and secure. Barrier/security mesh safeguards walls and ceilings in homes, apartments, offices, stores, factories, storage areas, correctional facilities, and more.

Barrier mesh combines all of the many distinct advantages of expanded metal with the added benefit of ensured safety.

Not only is barrier mesh available in a range of materials, but material can be produced to Military Specification MIL-M-17194 Type II, Class 1; ASTM 1267.
