The Non-slip One
So good, they named it loads of times! Diamond plate, mild steel chequer plate, steel tread plate - whatever you call it, this is the metal you need when slip-resistance is a must. An icon of the metal world, treadplate is a time-served favourite when it comes to safety underfoot. Health and safety is one of the most crucial considerations when it comes to construction, which is why diamond plate is always in demand. It's instantly recognisable by the smart, repetitive pattern of five-bar diamonds or lines that give it its brilliant grip. You've probably stepped over steel tread plate on walkways, stairs and in lifts. It's popular because it's safe and self-draining. Not only that, it’s really easy to clean, keeping corrosion at a minimum and making it ultra hard-wearing. Made from hot-rolled steel, our chequer plate is embossed with a neat, raised pattern that not only offers excellent non-skid performance, but also looks good. In fact, diamond plate is so aesthetically pleasing that it is often used for walls and floors in a non-industrial setting. Also known as Durbar plate and checker plate, this mild steel sheet is a construction must-have. Like all our metals, we can custom-cut our tread plate to provide you with precisely what you need.
How is it made?
The raised pattern of lines, five bar chequers or diamonds that gives this metal its edge is embossed on to one side of the mild steel plate, leaving the reverse completely flat. This happens through a hot rolling process, which, through a combination of pressure and heat, permanently stamps the design into the metal’s surface.
Good for: Stairs, walkways, platforms, construction sites, bridges, ramps, play equipment, containers, lifts, shipbuilding, offshore installations, commercial vehicles, cladding and anywhere else that requires a safe, non-slip surface underfoot - or simply an iconic metallic pattern.

What our customers say about us:
“Couldn't have been happier. I needed a sheet of metal for a DIY project. They had loads of options that made it very easy to order exactly what I wanted.” – Reuben Hope, December 2015.
- Michael Lotito, aka Monsieur Mangetout, was a Frenchman who ate metal. Before his death in 2007, he consumed many tonnes of metal, including TVs, bicycles and even a small aircraft. It's unclear whether he ever ingested any steel tread plate.
