Steel plates come in various material compositions to suit specialized uses.
The common industrial names of the different plates are:
- Ship Plates
- Boiler Plates
- Mild Steel Plates
- Checkered Plates, etc
Weight and dimensions of Ship, Boiler and MS plates are uniform to facilitate ordering.
Steel chequered plates are available in either the direction-free riser pattern or the straight striped pattern.
Since they feature excellent skid resistance and relatively low weight per unit area, these plates are economical to use in flooring and other structural applications.
