    You will need to go to a metal supply warehouse. Check yellow pages under steel distributers.

    I just called the metal place the other day, around 40 bucks depending on the size, there's some different things you can do regarding thickness, etc....

    True expanded metal is rather expensive. It takes a million dollar machine to manufacture it. Try a machine shop, if they don't stock it they can get it. If you're making a ramp, make sure you have the metal turned the right way to get traction.
