DML Expanded Metal Lathing Hits 100,000 Sheets a year!

This summer, construction connector manufacturer Simpson Strong-Tie is celebrating the production of its one hundred thousandth ‘ DML’ Expanded Metal Lathing sheet.

The UK’s most versatile, reinforcement mesh option, available in a sheet size of 2400 x 700 x 0.40.

The bead and mesh range from Simpson Strong-Tie is going from strength to strength, increasing in popularity as builders opt for a solution to suit a wider variety of applications. The DML is easy to install and comfortably capable for many internal and external purposes.

UK Marketing Manager, Kyle Perry explains:

“Our DML is something of a fan favourite; used as a general purpose reinforcement mesh, helping prevent cracking occur, when different materials meet. We can also provide this galvanised for internal use or stainless steel to fight those unforgiving weather conditions externally. Made in the UK at our head office and manufacturing facility in Tamworth, it’s a marvel and a joy to watch the efficiency these are being made with by our very skilled team – making the DML an easy fit for most situations.

The rate we’re making them, we will be producing enough DML next year to go from our head office to Edinburgh, Scotland!’’
