Hot Rolled Mild Steel Floor Plate or Floor Plate has a characteristic raised embossed patchwork pattern rolled on one side of the steel. These plates are available in a selection of thickness, width and length combinations (stocked in rectangular shaped "plates").  The purpose of the pattern is to provide a textured grip when used in a flooring application.


Floor plate or Tread Plate is commonly available in 250 Grade mild steel.  Used in applications where minimum design strengths are required and where finish is not the prime consideration it is very common in walkway floors in industrial and marine applications. This grade has good weldabilty and is easily welding using even basic welding gear.  Due to the high temperature manufacturing process surface oxidation will result in Mill Scale on the surface of plates.
