Metal Hems That Provide Protection and Increases Aesthetics

Custom formed metal hems are used to enclose expanded metal, wire meshing and perforated sheet steel. Hems provide a smooth, u-shaped edging around exposed ends of jagged sheet steel. Common applications include:

  • Handrail filler panels
  • Wire screening
  • Architectural designs
  • And More!

Steel Hems are rigid and weldable, providing cost effective protection to fabricated open filler panels. Fabricated Hems can be manufactured from a variety of materials including carbon steel, stainless steel and galvanized steel. Hems are also available in a variety of lengths and dimensions to meet specific customer needs. Standard material thicknesses are 10 gauge to 14 gauge.

Eberl Iron Works, Inc. utilizes CNC equipment and quality tooling to assure accurate dimensions and quality on our custom formed u-edging hems.
