To counteract this, screens of fine mesh gauze are laid over the expanded metal.
The expanded metal covering was also wire tied to the helix.
Each of these cylinders of expanded metal and wire was 30 ins.
The roof is composed of concrete slabs, reinforced with expanded metal laths and finished with cement and mortar.
The roof may be supported on pillars between which expanded metal of large size may be placed.
It is sufficient to use only expanded metal, to prevent any displaced pieces of rubber falling into the furnace chamber.
The portion of wall in front of the ducts was bonded to that behind by bonds, mostly of expanded metal, passing between the ducts.
In constructing the roof slab the expanded metal reinforcement raised the unit cost.
“expanded metal” too is admirably adapted for the purpose (fig. 1).
The cement-plaster exterior is handsomer and warmer than wood, and on expanded metal lath it is durable.
