The Benefits of Steel Floor Plate

Steel diamond floor plate is outstandingly durable, particularly considering its lightweight properties. It is also corrosion-resistant. The patterned side does all the work, providing the required protection or decoration.

These steel plates are considerably versatile. They can be applied practically anywhere that has the potential to cause slip hazards. They are mostly placed in high foot traffic workplace zones, or other commercial areas exposed to slippery conditions. Extensive maintenance is only usually required when the plate comes into contact with saltwater or corrosive chemicals. Even in these conditions, only annual checks and general maintenance are needed, which is relatively inexpensive. Other features include durability and slip resistance.
