Aluminium diamond checker plate for building/floor plates
Aluminium diamond checker plate flooring is used extensively in general fabrication and for architectural products such as flashings, pressings because of its ease of fabrication and excellent powder coating qualities.
Aluminium diamond checker plate is also known as tread plate, floor plate, checker plate, checkered plate, checkered floor plate, checker plate and check plate.
What is the aluminium diamond checker plate(diamond aluminium plate) production process?
Diamond aluminium plate is made by use of of an embossing manufacturing process which produced raised or sunken designs on sheet metal. Diamond plate is manufactured through embossing in two ways:
• By passing sheet metal through male and female roller dies in a single step
• By passing sheet metal through rollers with different portions of the desired pattern in several steps
Either process first uses a combination of heat and pressure to mold the stainless steel, mild steel or aluminium sheet to the desired thickness. This is done by forcing the metal sheer through a series of roller pairs. Roller pairs responsible for the gradual reduction in metal sheet sickness have one stationary upper roller and a revolving lower roller. Once the desired thickness is achieved the sheet metal is then passed through roller dies with the diamond pattern. For reasons of precision in the final intersecting diamond design the use of matched male and female dies is preferred over using multiple rollers.
Aluminium diamond plate is characterised by raised diamond shaped relief lines criss-crossing at 90angles. Diamond plate is usually made from mild steel, stainless steel or aluminium. Stainless steel or mild steel diamond plate is made by hot rolling to desired thickness and then passing the sheet though rollers with the raised diamond design. The greatest benefit realized from using diamond plate is its non-skid property. The criss-crossing raised diamond designs offer excellent foot and hand grip making it almost impossible to slip. This non-slip safety feature of diamond plate makes it ideal for use on stairs, catwalks, walkways, loading lamps and trailer beds. The excellent hand and foot grip offered by diamond plate makes it ideal for use in the interior of ambulances and foot plates on fire trucks.
Aluminium checker plate sheet has many applications but its main use is for protection. Its decorative and industrial appearance also generates interest with designers and it can often be found included in architecture and the decor of buildings.
