One bar, 2 Bar, 3 Bar, 5 Bar Aluminum Diamond Tread Plates 14 Gauge, 12, 8 Gauges

Aluminum diamond tread plate, also referred to as aluminum floor plate, is a popular aluminum sheet material with a raised diamond pattern on one side, offering excellent anti-slip qualities. It finds widespread use across industries like transportation, construction, manufacturing, and marine applications due to its lightweight, corrosion-resistant properties, making it a versatile and practical material.

  • 2 Bar Aluminum Diamond Tread Plate:This pattern features two parallel raised bars or lines running across the plate's surface. It offers some anti-slip properties but is less aggressive than the 3 Bar and 5 Bar patterns. Often used in decorative applications and on interior surfaces.
  • 3 Bar Aluminum Diamond Tread Plate:This pattern has three raised bars or lines that intersect at 60-degree angles, forming a series of equilateral triangles. It provides better anti-slip properties compared to the 2 Bar pattern. Commonly used in applications where slip resistance is essential, such as stairs, ramps, and industrial flooring.
  • 5 Bar Aluminum Diamond Tread Plate:The 5 Bar pattern consists of five parallel raised bars or lines running across the plate's surface, forming a grid of small diamonds. It offers the highest level of slip resistance among these patterns, making it suitable for heavy-duty applications.
    Often used in truck beds, trailer floors, and other outdoor or industrial settings where slip resistance and durability are critical.

The choice of pattern depends on the specific requirements of application. If a high level of slip resistance and durability is needed, the 5 Bar pattern is a popular choice. The 3 Bar pattern provides a good balance between slip resistance and aesthetics, while the 2 Bar pattern is more decorative in nature and offers some slip resistance.

Aluminum Tread Plates Gauge:

The term "gauge" refers to the thickness of metal plates.
0.063" (typically corresponds to 14 gauge for aluminum)
0.080" (typically 12 gauge)
0.100" (typically 10 gauge)
0.125" (typically 8 gauge)

Choosing Aluminum Alloy Grades for Tread Plates

6061-T6 Aluminum tread plate conforms to ASTM B632/B632M and is an aluminum alloy tread plate with good strength, weldability, and resistance to stress corrosion.
Alloy: 6061 is an aluminum alloy predominantly made up of aluminum, magnesium, and silicon. It's known for its excellent mechanical properties and weldability.
Temper: The "T6" temper designation indicates that the material has been solution heat-treated and artificially aged. This temper results in high strength and good resistance to stress corrosion.
Standard: ASTM B632/B632M pertains to aluminum-alloy rolled tread plate. When you reference this standard in the context of 6061-T6, it means the tread plate is made of 6061 alloy in the T6 temper and meets the requirements set by the ASTM B632/B632M standard.

AW-5754-T114 Aluminum Tread Plate is in line with European standards such as EN 1386, offering good corrosion resistance, especially to industrial and marine environments, along with good weldability.

Alloy: 5754 is an aluminum alloy predominantly containing aluminum and magnesium. It's known for its excellent corrosion resistance, especially to industrial atmospheres and sea water. It also possesses good weldability.
Temper: "T114" is a specific temper designation related to aluminum tread plates. This particular temper involves solution heat treatment and controlled stretching (a form of strain hardening). It's a temper specifically mentioned in EN standards for tread plates.
Standard: The actual European standard for aluminum tread plates is EN 1386. EN 1386 specifies requirements for rolled products used for tread plates.

What is 5086-H34 Aluminum tread plate?

5086-H34 aluminum tread plate is a specialized aluminum alloy sheet known for its corrosion resistance, high strength, and durability in challenging conditions. It finds extensive use in marine, shipbuilding, and various other industries like transportation, construction, and manufacturing that demand these attributes. Its surface tread pattern boosts slip resistance, making it ideal for flooring and similar applications.

  • Material: Aluminum
  • Thickness: commonly available in a range from 0.125 inches (3.18 mm) to 0.25 inches (6.35 mm) or even thicker.
  • Width: commonly ranging from 36 inches (914.4 mm) to 48 inches (1219.2 mm) or wider.
    Length: Standard lengths are often 96 inches (2438.4 mm) or 120 inches (3048 mm), but custom lengths are also available.
  • Alloy Number: 5086 is the alloy number. It is a high-strength, non-heat-treatable aluminum alloy known for its excellent corrosion resistance and weldability.
  • Temper: H34 is the temper designation, indicating that the aluminum has undergone strain hardening and stabilization to achieve specific mechanical properties. In this case, H34 indicates that it has been strain-hardened and partially annealed.
  • Standard: 5086-H34 aluminum tread plate complies with various industry standards, such as ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards, AMS (Aerospace Material Specification) standards, or other international specifications. The specific standard may vary depending on the supplier and application.

What is ASTM B632/B632M and EN 482-5?

ASTM B632/B632M and EN 482-5 are standards pertaining to aluminum alloys and specifically focus on measuring the thickness of metal and alloy coatings. ASTM B632/B632M deals with aluminum tread plates, while EN 482-5 is a section of a European standard that establishes terminology for surface texture measurements, encompassing coating thickness measurements on materials like aluminum alloys. These standards play a crucial role in ensuring manufacturing and measurement processes maintain consistency and quality.

ASTM B632/B632M:

ASTM B632/B632M is a standard specification published by ASTM International (formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials).
It is titled "Standard Specification for Aluminum-Alloy Rolled Tread Plate."
This standard provides requirements for aluminum-alloy rolled tread plates, which are commonly used in applications requiring slip resistance, such as flooring, stairs, and other structural uses.
ASTM B632/B632M covers various aspects of aluminum tread plates, including material composition, dimensions, mechanical properties, workmanship, finish, and testing procedures.

EN 482-5:

EN 482-5 is part of the European Standard EN 482, which is titled "Geometrical product specifications (GPS) - Surface texture: Profile method; Surfaces having stratified functional properties - Part 5: Terms and definitions."
It is a standard that provides terminology and definitions related to surface texture measurements, particularly when dealing with surfaces that have stratified functional properties. Surface texture refers to the topography or characteristics of a surface.
EN 482-5, as part of the standard, specifies terms and definitions that are relevant to the profiling of surfaces, which can include measurements of coating thickness and roughness.
It is used in various industries to establish a common understanding of surface texture and its measurement methods.
