The chequered plate, particularly the 5-bar design offered by Speciality Metals, is a fusion of durability and versatility. Made from 3mm aluminium, it’s robust enough to bear the brunt of industrial tasks, yet light enough for easy handling and installation. One of its core attributes is its distinctive tread pattern, which not only adds to its aesthetic but more importantly provides an anti-slip surface.

This is particularly beneficial in high traffic areas where slips or trips could be costly. Beyond industrial settings, the chequered plate finds its value in the construction of resilient stair treads, durable truck beds, and sturdy trailers.
Its popularity as a kick plate stems from its ability to resist wear and tear, even when subjected to consistent impact. When you opt for the chequered plate from Speciality Metals, you’re not just getting a piece of metal; you’re investing in precision-engineered quality that’s built to last.

A 3mm chequered plate is renowned for its durability and anti-slip properties, making it a popular choice for industrial flooring, stair treads, and vehicle construction, particularly truck beds and trailers. Additionally, ramps, elevated walkways, and protective barriers utilize its resilience. In addition to heavy-duty applications, this plate is used as wall protection in warehouses, kick plates in high-traffic areas, and even in decorative contexts for an industrial aesthetic. Its versatility is evident in its wide range of applications across diverse industries, including docks and tool boxes.
There is no problem with painting or finishing a 3mm aluminium kicker plate to match your desired aesthetic or to coordinate with the surrounding decor if that is what you desire. If you paint or finish the kicker plate, you will be able to customise its appearance and blend it seamlessly with the overall design scheme of your home.
It is imperative that you properly prepare the surface of the aluminium kicker plate prior to painting or finishing it. Start by cleaning the plate thoroughly to remove any dirt, grease, or other contaminants. For this purpose, you can use a mild detergent solution mixed with water as a cleaning agent. Rinse the plate well and allow it to dry completely.
In order to achieve a better paint adhesion, you may need to slightly roughen the surface of the aluminium in order to ensure a better paint adhesion. To accomplish this, you can lightly sand the surface with fine-grit sandpaper or you can use a liquid deglosser to remove the excess gloss. During this process, please be careful not to scratch or damage the plate in any way.
In order to apply a suitable paint or finish to the surface, you need to prepare it first. Ensure that you choose a paint or coating that has been specifically designed for use on aluminium surfaces. It is important to choose products that offer a good adhesion, a high level of durability, as well as a resistance to chipping, peeling, or fading. Prior to applying the final coat of paint, it is recommended that you use a primer designed specifically for aluminium.
Alternatively, if an anodised or brushed finish is what you are looking for, there are specialised products available for aluminium surfaces if you prefer a different type of finish. Anodising is an electrochemical process that creates a durable and corrosion-resistant layer on the surface of the aluminium. In order to create a textured, satin-like finish, abrasive pads or brushes can be used to create a smooth, brushed surface using an abrasive pad or brush.
Please make sure that you work in a well-ventilated area when painting or finishing your project, and that you follow all of the safety precautions listed on the product labels. If you are considering painting or finishing your 3mm aluminium kicker plate yourself, you should also consider consulting with a professional or experienced painter for specific advice on the best products and techniques for painting or finishing your kicker plate.
As long as you paint or finish your aluminium kicker plate properly, it will not only enhance its visual appeal, but will also provide an additional layer of protection and durability, ensuring that it will stand up to everyday use and enhance the aesthetics of your living space.
In addition to aluminium, kicker plates can also be made from stainless steel, brass, or other metals to meet your needs. When choosing the appropriate material, it is important to take into account your specific requirements and take into account the characteristics of each material.
There are many benefits associated with stainless steel kicker plates, such as their strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion. They are suitable for high-traffic areas and environments where moisture or harsh conditions may be present. Plates made of stainless steel can either be polished to a high shine or brushed for a more subdued appearance depending on your preference.
