Chequer plate is also known as checker plate, tread plate, durbar floor plate, or diamond plate. It’s a piece of metal sheet with distinctive raised marks on the surface. Some of the popular surface patterns include diamonds, leaves, flowers, teardrops, and 5 bars.
Checker plate is commonly made from stainless steel, mild steel, and aluminium in a range of thicknesses. You may get thin checker plates at 1.5mm, 2mm, and 3mm, or receive thick ones with 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm plate thickness, mainly depending on where you plan to use them.
The versatility of tread plates determines they can be applied in different places for different purposes. You can use them as components in bridges, staircases, walkways, and decks. Alternatively, you may use the tread plates as floors of ambulances, trucks, and trailers.
Due to the properties of wear resistance, corrosion resistance, durability, and aesthetic appeal, chequer plates are widely used in a diverse range of places.

|MILD STEEL||2500-3600||1250-1500||2-22||FIVE BARS
Being made of mild steel, the checker plate is highly resistant to wear and the special treatment of heavy duty hot dipped galvanization makes the plate even corrosion-resistant. The mild steel chequer plate is especially popular among our customers for industrial use.
Many beautiful and distinctive patterns are designed on chequer plate surfaces. These raised marks on one hand largely improve the plates’ appearance, and on the other hand make the previously smooth surface anti-slip, making it an ideal choice for flooring applications.
Steel chequer plates can be applied across various industries due to their versatility. In the construction field, it is usually used as flooring or cladding material; in outdoor applications, it is a popular choice for platforms, stairs, and access ramps due to its anti-corrosion and weather-resistant quality; in the transportation field, it is an ideal material for vehicle parts like truck beds and trailer floors.
No Risk of Waste
The tread plate can be cut to size accurately either by a guillotine or plate saw. You won’t waste any piece of plate to get the exact products you need. Alternatively, just leave the job to us by indicating the specification requests. We provide custom-made checker plates.
We provide high quality chequer plates made from different materials including mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminium.
The thickness of a chequer plate you need to choose depends on the specific application and the load-bearing capacity required. A thinner chequer plate is more suitable for decoration, while a thicker one is preferred for flooring and load-bearing applications.
