Embossed Tread Plates -for Trucks and Trailers Tread Plate-Anti Skidding Steps

Embossed Tread Plate, refers to metal sheets with raised diamond or other patterns on one side and a smooth surface on the other. It is primarily used for its anti-slip properties and decorative appearance.


Anti-skidding: The raised pattern provides additional grip, making it suitable for walkways, ramps, stairs, and flooring in industrial settings or vehicles.
Durability: Due to the raised patterns, the wear and tear on the actual surface of the metal are reduced. This makes the plate last longer in high traffic areas.
Aesthetic appeal: The plate is used in decorative applications due to its shiny appearance and distinctive pattern.
Strength: The embossing process can add rigidity to the plate, making it stronger than a flat sheet of the same thickness.
Easy to clean: The pattern allows for easy cleaning, making it suitable for applications where hygiene is important, such as food processing plants.

Common Materials:

Aluminum: Lightweight and resistant to corrosion, making it ideal for applications where weight and resistance to the elements are critical.
Stainless steel: Known for its corrosion resistance and strength.
Carbon steel: Typically coated or painted to prevent rusting.
Galvanized steel: Steel coated with a layer of zinc to prevent rusting.


  • Industrial walkways, stairs, and ramps.
  • Flooring in trucks, buses, and trailers.
  • Wall and floor paneling in decorative applications.
  • Protective walls in loading docks or storage areas.
    Elevator floors.


  • Diamond (or checker): This is the most common pattern, consisting of a series of raised diamonds.
  • Five-bar: Looks like five parallel bars.
  • Bean or Lentil: Resembles small beans or lentils spread across the surface.
  • Three-bar: Three parallel bars.
  • Oblong, slotted, other patterns.


The thickness of embossed tread plates can range from very thin (like 0.8mm) to thick plates (like 7mm or more). The choice of thickness usually depends on the application. For example, heavy machinery or industrial applications might require thicker plates for added durability.


The weight of the tread plate depends on its dimensions (length, width, and thickness) and the material used. For instance, aluminum is lighter than steel. You can determine the weight of a plate using the formula:
Weight=Density of the material×Volume (which is Area x Thickness)


  • Mill Finish: This is the standard finish directly from the mill and is the most common.
  • Bright or Mirror Finish: This is a highly polished finish, often found on aluminum plates.
  • Powder-coated: Allows for a range of colors and added protection against corrosion.
    Anodized: Especially for aluminum, provides a harder, more resistant surface and can come in various colors.
  • Galvanized: A zinc coating applied to steel to prevent rust.


The packing of embossed tread plates is crucial to ensure they are protected from scratches, damage, and external environmental factors during storage and transportation. Here are the typical packing methods used:

  • Wooden Pallets:Tread plates are often stacked on wooden pallets. The wood acts as a cushion and prevents any damage from below.
    The number of plates per pallet depends on the plate's size and thickness.
  • Cardboard or Craft Paper:Sheets of cardboard or craft paper can be placed between individual plates. This prevents the plates from rubbing against each other, protecting them from scratches.
  • Banding: Steel or plastic straps can be used to bind the stack of plates together, ensuring they don't shift during transportation.

  • Material: Typically made from 1060, 3003, 5052, 5083, 5086, 6061, or 7075 aluminum alloy.
  • Patterns: Common patterns include five-bar, diamond, and stucco.
  • Thickness: Generally ranges from 0.8mm to 10mm, but thicker plates can be made for specific applications.
  • Finish: Bright finish, but it can also be mill finish or anodized for added protection.
  • Temper: Can vary, but common tempers are H14, H18, H24, H32, T6.
  • Edge: Can be supplied with or without a protective edge. The edges can be sheared or saw-cut.
  • Anti-slip: The raised pattern provides grip, making it useful for flooring, stairs, and ramps.

Diamond Tread Embossed (brite finish)

Common Dimensions:

  • Width: Typically available in 600mm to 2000mm, but Hongda offer wider plates.
  • Length: Standard lengths are usually 2000mm, 2500mm, or 3000mm, but Hongda can custom lengths can also be ordered.
  • Pattern Depth: Varies depending on the design and manufacturing process but usually ranges from 0.8mm to 1.5mm for most patterns.
  • Pattern Pitch: The distance from the center of one raised pattern to the center of the next. This varies based on design but is typically between 26mm to 75mm for diamond patterns.

What is Embossed Tread Plates Melon Pattern?

The "melon" pattern typically refers to a pattern that resembles the surface of a melon, which is characterized by semi-circular or crescent-like shapes arranged in rows. This pattern provides both aesthetic appeal and enhanced traction.

  • Material: The plate could be made of various aluminum alloys, but common ones include 3003, 5052, or 6061.
  • Finish: Since it's a bright embossed plate, the finish would be shiny.
  • Temper: This will depend on the alloy used. For example, if made of 3003 alloy, common tempers could be H22 or H24.
  • Pattern Depth: The depth of the embossing can vary, but for a 2mm thick sheet, expect the pattern depth to be in the range of 0.5mm to 1mm.

Embossed plates with melon patterns can be used in decorative applications, flooring, wall panels, vehicle steps, and other areas where both aesthetics and anti-slip properties are desired.

Our products are packaged for export as tread plates are frequently shipped overseas. When these plates are destined for international shipment, we take additional packing precautions to ensure they can endure the challenges of marine transportation. This may involve the use of rust-proof paper, extra wrapping, and moisture barriers.
