Stainless steel checker plate keeps the high corrosion resistance and strength that stainless steel provides. Besides, its raised tread pattern design provides excellent skid resistance to increase friction. These features make it popular in many applications, including buildings, decoration, rail transit, machinery manufacturing and other industries. Wanzhi Steel stocks stainless steel diamond plates available in different grades, patterns, sizes, etc. Also, we offer value-added services, such as cutting to size, etc. Welcome to contact us for more details!

The checked plate made of stainless steel is more resistant than ordinary carbon and galvanized steel sheets. Besides, the Cr element in stainless steel improves the atmospheric corrosion resistance, especially in chloride and alkaline corrosion.
One of the biggest characteristics of stainless steel checker plate is that it has good anti-skid features due to concave and convex patterns. This can provide all-around traction and make it very practical.
The plate is easy to weld, cut, form and machine with proper equipment. In addition, this processing procedure does not damage its mechanical properties.
It has high-quality modern appearance and strong metallic texture. The silver-grey finish and raised diamond pattern make it more attractive and decorative. Besides, it has many different patterns to choose from to meet different application needs.
It has a long lifespan of more than 50 years. Also, it is easy to clean and almost maintenance-free.
Because of its unique features and anti-skip texture, stainless steel checker plate have a wide range of applications worldwide. Especially, it is suitable for food machinery, pharmaceutical machinery, electronic weighing, refrigerator, cold storage, buildings, packaging, transmission belts, automatic doors and car system. It includes:
1. Construction: floor decking sheets, roofing panels, wall cladding, garages, storage system, etc.
2. Industry: engineer processing, loading ramps, packing, printing, logistics equipment, etc.
3. Decoration: elevator cabs, building curtain walls, cold storage, ceilings, special ornamental projects, etc.
4. Transportation: cargo trailer, the interior of vehicles, automobile stairs, subway station, trailer beds, etc.
5. Road Protection: walkways, stair pedals, trench covers, pedestrian bridges, escalator approaches, etc.
6. Other Uses: store signs, displays, bars, toolboxes, counters, emergency fire landings, food preparation areas, dinnerware, cupboard, water heater, kitchen utensil, ship deck, etc.
Generally, stainless steel checker plate is made of stainless steel through embossing process. It has diamond-shaped patterns on the surface to improve its decorative effect and anti-slip performance. So it is also called diamond plate, tread plate, and chequer plate. Due to the excellent corrosion resistance and slip resistance of the SS checker plate, it has been used in many industries. The pattern design is also constantly updated and improved. There are dozens of patterns to choose from. The most popular patterns are chequered patterns, diamond patterns, lentils patterns, leaves patterns, etc.
There are two different production processes. A kind of stainless steel checker plate is rolled by the rolling mill when producing stainless steel. The thickness is about 3-6mm, and it is annealed and pickled after hot rolling. The process is as follows:
Stainless steel billet → Hot rolling → Hot annealing and pickling line → Leveling machine, tension leveller, polishing line → Cross-cutting line → Hot-rolled stainless steel checkered plate.
This kind of checker plate is flat on one side and patterned on the other. It is more commonly used in the chemical industry, railway vehicles, platforms and other applications where strength is required.
The other kind of stainless steel diamond plate is made of hot-rolled or cold-rolled stainless steel by mechanical stamping. These products are concave on one side and convex on the other side. They are often used for decoration purposes.
At Wanzhi Steel, we stock a full range of checker plates and sheets in carbon steel and stainless steel. As a wholesale supplier, we have checker plates available in different sizes, grades and pattern design to meet different applications. By comparison, carbon steel plate has excellent mechanical properties. Also, it is more affordable than stainless steel and other types of metals. If you are looking for a cost-effective solution, carbon steel plates will be a better choice. While SS diamond plate is more resistant to corrosion. It is also the best choice for food and beverage industry. Also, it has a bright and beautiful surface. If you want to know more details, please contact us now!
