Get your commercial grade steel diamond plate from C Henry Steel. Diamond plate is also known around the workplace as tread plate, checker plate and floor plate. Made from stainless steel, aluminum or steel, these metal plates can be put to work as anything from heavy duty flooring surface over existing cement or mezzanine structures in factories, freezers and more.
The name comes from the fact that a raised diamond pattern is present on the surface of the metal. In order to create this pattern a hot rolling process is typically used, where sheets of steel or aluminum are passed through two rollers that compress the metal. The type of pattern is dictated by the indentations on one of the rollers, which are used to create raised shapes on the final plate material.
Steel diamond plate first appeared in the middle of the 20th century and was used in a variety of industrial, commercial and military applications. The initial use of the material was as anti-skid surface to provide additional traction. It can be used indoors, thought it is especially useful on outdoor catwalks and steps that may become wet or muddy.
