What is aluminium chequered plate?

Safety first... Similar in appearance to steel chequer plate, diamond plate aluminium offers a non-slip surface where you need safety underfoot. More lightweight than steel tread plate, it can be easily secured to existing flooring, adding a layer of texture that’s got plenty of grip and reducing the risk of slipping. The distinctive 5-bar pattern on diamond plate makes it sought after not just for performance, but for style, too: our aluminium treadplate is often used in interior design and car modification, as well as in industry. It comes in three thicknesses and a wide choice of sizes. What’s more, our free cutting service means we can trim your diamond plate sheets down to precisely the amount you need, with no minimum order. If you’re looking for a sturdier, stand-alone diamond plate sheet, see our steel chequer plate. Good for: Van flooring, kick-plates, industrial-style decor, vehicle modification, stairways, walkways, lifts, factory floors, ramps, freezers, trench covers, walls and more. How it’s made: At the factory, aluminium is passed through two giant rollers, one which is smooth and one which is marked with a raised pattern, the well-known diamond or 5-bar, which gives this material its name. This process means that the metal sheets are embossed with diamonds or bars on one side and smooth and flat on the other, producing diamond plate aluminium that’s ready to be walked on. Benefits:
  • Easy to fit
  • Non-slip
  • Durable
  • Versatile
Random fact: In Japan in 2013, aluminium drinks cans were collected and carefully arranged to create a replica of Yoshida Castle, an impressive building which happened to be standing just beyond the recycled sculpture. The creation promoted the idea of recycling and achieved the world record for a structure made with the most aluminium cans.

What is Aluminium Sheet? The Lightweight One Ultra-ductile, rust resistant and super-light, our sheet aluminium is suitable for a multitude of uses. This nonmagnetic, widely recycled metal is perhaps most well-known for its role in drinks cans and other packaging. Thanks to its lightweight properties, though, it also aces aircraft engineering, luggage components, bicycles and auto parts. What’s more, aluminium is incredibly resistant to corrosion, making it a clever choice for windows, roofing and other construction jobs. Aluminium is easily identifiable by its bright, silvery sheen. Just like the other metals we sell, we can provide your sheet aluminium in exactly the size you need, meaning no excess product will go to waste. There’s no minimum order, too, so you can order as much or as little aluminium as you need. Thicknesses: 0.9mm, 1.2mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, and 6mm thick sheet. Good for: Packaging, drinks cans, foil sheets, cookware, home appliances, signage, storage tanks, trailers, welding, car panels, spacecraft, aerospace engineering, furniture, gutters, awnings, roofing, siding, luggage, bicycle components, ships, military vehicles, armour. How it's made: Get ready for a quick science lesson: the process of making aluminium sheet begins with bauxite, a soil-like substance that’s mined from underground. Clay is washed off the bauxite, which then goes through a grinding machine, before being plunged into a hot bath of caustic soda and lime. The caustic soda and lime refine the bauxite, extracting aluminium oxide. The aluminium oxide is filtered and heated, and by now takes the form of white powder. Next, electricity and carbon are combined with the aluminium oxide to create aluminium; an electrical current is passed between a negative carbon cathode and a positive carbon anode. The anode and the oxygen in the aluminium oxide react, producing carbon dioxide. This process creates liquid aluminium, which is moulded into ingots ready to be rolled out into aluminium sheets at the factory. Benefits:
  • Low density
  • Versatile
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Recyclable
What our customers say about us: “Competitively priced. Helpful on the phone before online ordering. Cut to size for us. Promptly delivered. Can't ask for more!” – Mr N Smith, Trustpilot, September 2016. Random fact: The largest sculpture made of aluminium drinks cans was built in Abu Dhabi, UAE in 2012. Comprising 46,566 aluminium cans, the structure was a scale model of the city’s landmark, 200-year-old Al Maqta Fort. It was built on Al Taweelah beach by a team of 30 people, and it took six full days to create.

Aluminium Sheet

£4.21£604.50
aluminium stucco sheet metal
View Details Select options
What is stucco aluminium sheet? Textured excellence Lightweight, versatile and resistant to corrosion, aluminium sheet has already got a lot going for it. Add in a “pebbled” finish and you’ve got a sheet metal that’s as aesthetically pleasing as it is practical. This is incredibly corrosive-resistant Grade 1050A alloy aluminium, and it’s been embossed with a textured pattern that gives it an attractive look. This finish diffuses light and stops it from reflecting off the surface of the metal, so you get all the strengths of aluminium, without the glare. As the surface is already dull, it ages far better than smooth aluminium. You might recognise the “orange peel” stucco pattern from travel trunks and vanity cases, and it’s also used extensively in interior décor. Available in a choice of two thicknesses (0.9mm and 1.2mm), our stucco aluminium sheet makes smart, stylish cladding and panelling, and is often used in modern kitchens and bathrooms. Just like all Buy Metal Online sheet metals, we’ll cut your stucco aluminium sheet down to size for free, meaning you get exactly the amount you need. And with no minimum order, no job is too small. Good for: Kitchens, bathrooms, splashbacks, luggage, panelling, cladding, roofing, construction, interior design, art, installations, displays, refrigeration, insulation, air conditioning. How it's made: Aluminium is made when aluminium ore (bauxite) is mined from the earth and refined in a bath of lime and caustic soda. This allows the extraction of aluminium oxide, which is filtered, heated and combined with electricity and carbon to form liquid aluminium. The liquid aluminium is moulded into ingots then rolled out into sheets, which, in the case of stucco aluminium sheet, are then embossed with the ‘pebbly’ pattern. Benefits:
  • Very strong
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Non-reflective
  • Recyclable
What our customers say about us: “Absolutely delighted with my purchase. Quality service, packaging and delivery, plus not forgetting what a fabulous price. More orders will most certainly be on the way.” – JohnnyBoy, Trustpilot, November 2016. Random fact: In space, astronauts wear gloves and socks made from fabric with aluminium added to it. As a strong insulator, the aluminium traps the heat within the body and helps to stop astronauts from feeling the extremely cold temperatures of space. It’s a similar idea to the plastic, soil-covered blankets that are often handed out to keep runners warm after they’ve finished a long race. Aluminised thermal clothing is now popular on earth as well as in space.
