Million pound investment by Expanding Metal Company

The UK-based Expanded Metal Company has announced that it has made a £multi million investment in the new state-of the-art metal expanding machines, ancillary processing machinery, storage and systems at its Hartlepool factory, much of which is dedicated to a new product, ExMeshTM (previously known as ‘Expamet’) PIDS Easy Fit fencing system.

This investment comes on the back of a high growth year for the company’s security fencing, with a 150% increase in demand.

The expanded metal mesh used in the ExMeshTM PIDS Easy Fit system, has many advantages over other types of mesh used in alternative systems:

  • Quick and easy to install with only 6 mounting bolts per panel, now of which are accessible from the attack face.
  • The system incorporates protected cable channels and mounting rails for standard conduit systems and/or armoured cable.
  • The cable channels allow long lengths of cables to be run across the fencing panels without the cable being compromised.
  • ExMeshTM PIDS Easy Fit systems have been designed to work as part of a layered security approach, allowing electronic security systems to be easily integrated.
  • The mesh pattern used in the ExMeshTM PIDS Easy Fit system offers good through vision. This makes it ideal for CCTV monitored areas.
  • The fencing system is fully galvanised as standard. Powder coating is available in a wide choice of RAL colours.  (This may incur additional charges).
  • Each fence panel is made from a single sheet of galvanised steel (the panel is galvanised after the sheet has been cut).
  • With no joins, welds or links used in the manufacture of ExMeshTM security products, the fence panels are some of the toughest and secure available.

ExMeshTM Security Products are a range of products that achieved a number of accreditations including; Secured by Design and LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board).  The company also has pre-validated questionnaires for Achilles UVDB and RISQS.  These products are available off the shelf from its 240,000 sq ft UK factory, where customers are welcome to come and meet the team.

Geoff Miles, ExMeshTM European Business Development Manager, said:  “ExMeshTM security products have good through vision and are quick and easy to install.  ExMeshTM PIDS Easy Fit in particular is an excellent security barrier for use in a wide range of security settings, with the added bonus of low maintenance.  We are seeking real growth as the industry is voting with its feet, buying thousands of kilometres of fencing systems which is delivering real value for money in the long-term for our customers.
