The 5-bar design of the tread plate plays a pivotal role in enhancing its functionality. As a result of the raised pattern, the surface is highly slip-resistant, which is especially important in environments prone to moisture or spills. Second, the design channels away water and other liquids, reducing pooling and minimising slip hazards. Moreover, the raised bars increase the plate’s structural rigidity, making it stronger and more durable. Furthermore, the distinctive pattern diffuses light, improving visibility in low-light conditions. Lastly, the 5-bar design, while functional, also adds an aesthetic appeal, giving the tread plate a modern and industrial look suitable for various applications.
Checker plates, also known as diamond plates or tread plates, are metal sheets with a pattern of raised diamonds or lines. Painting it is possible, but it requires proper surface preparation and the use of specialised paint to ensure adhesion and durability. Prior to painting, it is important to thoroughly clean the surface, remove any rust or oil, and prime it. Checker plates should be painted with epoxy-based paints due to their high performance.
Checker plates made of aluminum are resistant to corrosion and rust, while those made of galvanised steel will rust over time if they are not maintained properly. Using rust-inhibiting paint on galvanised steel checker plate regularly will prevent rusting.
This product is aluminium, which means that it will not corrode under usual circumstances.
