Aluminium Checker Plate Sheets

Aluminium checker plate, also known as aluminium tread plate or diamond plate, has a raised repeating diamond pattern to improve grip and traction in heavy traffic areas. Due to it’s excellent strength and corrosion resistance, it is primarily used in outdoor environments such as walkways, access ramps, trailer and truck beds or for indoor floor and wall protection, but can also be found in interior design, hospitality and retail settings for its aesthetic effect.

    Aluminium tread plate is initially made like any other aluminium sheet product, by passing the raw material through machine rollers until it reaches its desired thickness.
