A = Opening of mesh - center to center in the short distance
B = length of the loop – center to center in the long distance
C = Thickness in the long distance
D = The strip
E = thickness of the plate in the short distance
SC = provision cross - mesh - accompanying the width
SL = provision longitudinal - mesh - the length
Base Metal:Original metal before it is expanded; thickness is usually stated as gauge.
Finished Thickness ：Thickness of expanded metal after it’s final secondary operation(s).
Strand:One side of expanded metal design. (See Diagram)
Bond:The solid intersection of two strands - Double the strand width. (See Diagram)
SWD:Short way of design measured from center of bond to center of bond. (See Diagram)
LWD:Long way of design measured from center of bond to center of bond. (See diagram)
