Ref. LF2L section for framing 'angled strand'type expanded
steel having strand widths of 2.40mm or under and also flattened
expanded steel. Standard length 2500mm.
Steel L sections have been specially produced for framing
expanded steel mesh and they offer several advantages. With two
sections only many expanded steel meshes can be framed easily
and with cost saving.
There is less metal in the L sections than in U sections so
they are more economical and are lighter.
With the L sections the fabrication of framed panels is easier
and therefore less costly.
The complete frame is welded together with mitred corners
and the mesh placed in position and welded at intervals; all
welding is inside the panel.
The need for sliding the mesh into a gap and clenching is
