Each AMIGUARD® 6000 Security Metal Mesh panel goes through a process of slitting and stretching metal sheet to form the desired style. The Security Metal Mesh Panel now has strands and intersecting strands called bonds forming a sharp angle to the original plane of the solid sheet. This process creates the unique pattern and allows a single sheet of metal to be processed into several sheets of Security Metal Mesh Panels. AMIGUARD® 6000 Security Metal Mesh panel are ideally suited for commercial fencing and gates.

Expanded Metal Definitions
- Bond = the solid intersection of two strands.
- Diamonds = open area of expanded mesh panels after expanding.
- Percent of Open Area = The relation of solid metal to open diamond area.
- Pitch = The measurement from a point of a diamond to the same point on an adjacent diamond.
- LWD = nominal dimension, Long Way of the Diamond, center of bond to center of bond.
- SWD = nominal dimension, Short Way of the Diamond , center of bond to center of bond.
- LWO = Long Way of the Opening.
- SWO = Short Way of the Opening.
- Strand Thickness = thickness of the base metal.
- Strand Width = forward motion of expanded mesh panels during production.
- Overall Thickness = thickness of raised expanded mesh panels.
