Aluminum diamond plate, sometimes called aluminum tread plate, aluminum floor plate, or aluminum checker plate, is available in 6061-T6 and 3003-H14 sizes. The 6061-T6 alloy can have a dull or shiny finish and is harder and more durable, and the 3003-H14 has shiny bright finish, and is softer and more formable. Aluminum tread plate is commonly seen on fire trucks and truck toolboxes.
Classification of aluminum checkered plates
According to the different patterns of aluminum plate:
1. Compass aluminum tread plate: non-slip aluminum plate, which has the same effect as five bars, but it is not often used.
2. Orange peel aluminum checkered plate is divided into: classic orange peel aluminum tread plate, variant orange peel aluminum tread plate (also called bug pattern). Its surface shows an orange peel pattern, so it can also be called an orange peel aluminum tread plate. It is a series of pattern products commonly used in refrigerators, air conditioners and packaging.
3. Five bars aluminum tread plate: Five bars non-slip aluminum plate is also known lancet-shaped diamond plate. It has good anti-slip ability, and is widely used in building (floor) platform design and other aspects. Because the pattern on the surface of the aluminum plate is arranged in parallel with five uneven patterns, and each pattern has an angle of 60-80 degrees with other patterns, this pattern has excellent anti-slip performance. This kind of aluminum plate is usually used in China as a kind of non-slip material, which has a good anti-slip effect and is cheap.
4. The lenticular aluminum tread plate：It is a commonly used style of anti-slip aluminum plate, which has good anti-slip effect. It is mainly used in carriages, platforms, skids in cold storage and workshops, and skids in elevators.
5. Aluminum spherical tread sheet: It can also be called aluminum semi-spherical patterned sheet. The surface shows a small spherical pattern, just like small pearls, so this aluminum sheet can become a pearl-shaped aluminum sheet. It mainly used in outer packaging. The appearance is relatively beautiful. Due to the special pattern, the strength of this aluminum plate is much higher than other pattern series.
6. Other aluminum tread plate: wave aluminum tread plate, water ripple aluminum tread plate, corrugated aluminum tread plate (also can be aluminum tile), rattan aluminum tread plate, three-dimensional triangle aluminum tread plate, strip aluminum tread plate, cobblestone aluminum tread plate, triangle strip aluminum tread plate, butterfly aluminum tread plate and so on.
7, diamond-shaped aluminum tread plate: packaging pipes or outer packaging commonly used.
The tread aluminum sheet is widely used in furniture: refrigerators, air conditioners, carriages, platforms, packaging pipes, screen skeletons, various suspension beams, table legs, decorative strips, handles, cable troughs and covers, chair tubes, etc. .
According to the different aluminum alloy, it can be divided into:
1. Aluminum-manganese alloy tread plate: processed with 3003 as the main raw material. This type of aluminum plate is also called rust-proof aluminum plate. Its strength is slightly higher than that of ordinary aluminum alloy pattern tread plate. It has certain rust prevention properties, but has hardness and corrosion resistance it can’t reach 5000 series of tread plates, so this product is applied in non-strict antirust, such as truck models, cold storage floor.
2. Aluminum-magnesium alloy tread plate: It is processed from 5000 series aluminum plates such as 5052 or 5083, which has good corrosion resistance, hardness, and rust resistance. Usually used in special places, such as ships, cabin lights in humid environments, this aluminum plate has high hardness and has a certain load-bearing capacity.
3. Ordinary aluminum tread plate: The aluminum tread plate processed with 1060 aluminum plate as the base can adapt to the ordinary environment and the price is low. Usually used in cold storage, flooring, and outer packaging.
