Don't buy the brushes with the plastic base. Or if you do don't use them on a hot grill. The plastic melts and releases the wires.

All metals warp to some degree with heat. I think grills made from expanded metal warp more the ones made from solid round bar like most ovens have. It's hard to find just the right size for most fire pans. The other problem with expanded is cleaning, the sharp "v" is hard to clean and may be what catches wires and breaks them off. I prefer the round bar grates.
