As a premier steel and metal merchant in South Africa, Baldwins Metal Land stands at the forefront of delivering exceptional steel solutions tailored to the diverse needs of big and small projects.

Our repertoire extends into specialised products like expanded metals and walkway mesh.

Understanding Expanded Metals

Expanded metal is a versatile material known for its unique mesh design. Expanded metals are lightweight and structurally sound, created through a meticulous process that slices and stretches metal sheets without material loss.

They serve various purposes, from reinforcing concrete to facilitating airflow and light penetration in architectural designs.


Expanding metal sheets increases their strength relative to their weight significantly, offering a high-efficiency solution across multiple domains.

The Versatility and Uses of Walkway Mesh

Walkway mesh epitomises safety and durability. Designed to ensure secure footing in even the most challenging conditions, it features a robust, non-slip surface ideal for industrial platforms, stairways, and catwalks.

Beyond its primary function of providing a safe passage, this mesh excels in areas requiring superior drainage, making it invaluable in environments prone to wetness or oil spills.


Thanks to its effective slip-resistant properties, incorporating walkway mesh in industrial settings significantly reduces accidents.
