Aluminium checker plate is a common material in commercial and industrial settings. Although it has a distinct pattern, the plate is generally not considered to be an aesthetic marvel. However, the plate type is widely used because of its versatility, non-slip capabilities, and easiness to clean.
It may also be known as diamond plate, floor plate, or tread plate in some industries. Although the name varies, the design is always similar. It consists of a solid plate of aluminium with a raised design on its exterior. The design is usually small line segments about an inch in length, but some industries may use dots, straight lines across the plate’s width, or shapes.
Ambulances use checker plate on their interiors to keep gear from sliding around on the floor, for easy cleaning after a patient has been transported, and because it has significant durability. The raised ridges allow emergency personnel to move around without slipping even if the floor is covered with fluids.
Industrial rooms in factories or plants may quickly become bloody, dirty, or dusty. Checker plate allows employees to safely walk among workstations, but the floor can also be cleaned up without expensive solvents or tools. If an employee drops a small item or product, it can be easily distinguished from the checker plate floor. Carpet or tile may hide small items because of the coloring or cracks between each floor section.
Cargo aircraft and animal transport vehicles often use tread plates for their floors. Because animals may defecate, sweat, or spread feed around the vehicle, tread plate floors allow owners to easily wash out the vehicle. Tread plate also prevents the floor from being damaged by heavy animals’ footfalls.
A college, school, or university may install it as flooring in a parking ramp or classroom. Checker plate is durable enough to withstand repeated abuse in woodworking courses or similar technical classes. If a student drops a power tool onto the floor, it won’t be severely damaged and need a replacement. The raised ridges prevent students from slipping when trying to carry or hold heavy pieces of wood or other materials.
Businesses may want to consider aluminium checker plate for jobs and projects including:
– aircraft floors
– building doors
– building floors
– vehicle interiors
– vehicle walls
Although it is slightly more expensive than simple flooring or a flat metal panel, floor plates offer improved functionality over the lifespan of the room or vehicle.
