Stainless Steel Anti-Skid Plate Specifications

Hot-Rolled Stainless Steel Checker Plate

  • Thickness Range: Usually 3 mm to 12 mm, some specific processes and equipment can produce thicker plates, up to 20 mm or thicker.
  • Width Range: Generally 1000 mm to 2000 mm, common widths are 1220 mm (mm) and 1500 mm (mm).
  • Length Range: Usually 2000 mm to 6000 mm, which can be customized according to customer needs.
  • Pattern Type: Common patterns include five ribs, three ribs, diamond patterns, etc. These patterns are mainly formed by pressing the pattern mold on the roller at high temperatures.

Cold-Pressed Stainless Steel Tread Plate

  • Thickness Range: Usually 0.8 mm to 6 mm. Since the cold pressing process is suitable for thinner plates, the thickness generally does not exceed 6 mm.
  • Width Range: Generally 600 mm to 1500 mm, common widths are 1000 mm and 1250 mm.
  • Length Range: Usually 2000 mm to 4000 mm, length can be customized according to customer needs.
  • Pattern Type: Common patterns include diamond patterns, polka dot patterns, willow leaf patterns, etc. The cold pressing process can finely control the depth and spacing of the pattern, making the pattern clearer and more regular.

Stainless Steel Checker Plate Production Line

  1. Raw Material Handling

    • Stainless Steel Coils/Sheets: The production line starts with stainless steel coils or sheets, commonly made from grades 304 or 316, known for their corrosion resistance and durability.
    • Decoiler: This machine unwinds the stainless steel coil and feeds it into the production line.

Stainless Steel Coil Decoiling

  1. Leveling and Flattening

    • Leveling Machine: Ensures the stainless steel sheets are flat and even, removing any curvature or imperfections before further processing.
  2. Surface Cleaning

    • Cleaning Machine: Removes any dirt, oil, or contaminants from the surface of the steel to ensure good quality in the final product.
  3. Pattern Rolling

    • Pattern Rolling Mill: This is the core component of the production line where the actual checker or diamond pattern is embossed onto the stainless steel sheet. This machine uses patterned rollers to press the design into the sheet.
      • Roller Design: The rollers have specific patterns (e.g., diamond, teardrop, etc.) that are imprinted onto the stainless steel.
      • Temperature Control: This can be done at ambient temperatures or with slight heating to make the stainless steel more pliable and to ensure a crisp pattern.

Pattern Rolling Stainless Checker Plates, Stainless Steel Checker Plate Production Line

  1. Cutting and Sizing

    • Shearing Machine: Cuts the patterned sheets to the desired size as per customer requirements. These machines ensure precise cutting with clean edges.
    • CNC Plasma Cutter or Laser Cutter: For more precise or intricate cutting requirements.
  2. Edge Trimming and Finishing

    • Edge Trimming Machine: Ensures the edges of the cut plates are smooth and free from burrs.
    • Polishing Machine: Provides a clean and polished finish to the stainless steel checker plate, enhancing its aesthetic appeal and resistance to corrosion.
  3. Inspection and Quality Control

    • Inspection Station: Each plate is inspected for pattern consistency, thickness, size accuracy, and surface finish to ensure it meets the required standards.
  4. Packaging and Handling

    • Stacking and Packing Machine: Automatically stacks and prepares the finished plates for packaging.
    • Packaging: Plates are packed, often with protective materials, to prevent damage during transportation.


  • Industrial Flooring: For slip-resistant flooring in factories and workshops.
  • Vehicle Steps and Platforms: Used in trucks, buses, and other vehicles.
  • Architectural and Decorative Uses: For decorative cladding, stairs, and walkways in buildings.
  • Marine Applications: For ship decks and other marine environments due to its corrosion resistance.

Advantages of Stainless Steel Checker Plates

  • Durability: High resistance to wear and corrosion.
  • Slip Resistance: The patterned surface provides excellent slip resistance.
  • Aesthetics: Offers a visually appealing finish that can enhance the appearance of structures.
  • Low Maintenance: Easy to clean and maintain, making it suitable for various environments.

Hot Rolling and Cold Pressing Stainless Steel Anti-Skid Plates

Hot rolling and cold pressing are two different processes for the production of stainless steel anti-skid plates. They have significant differences in processing, product characteristics, and applicable scenarios:

Hot Rolling Stainless Steel Anti-Skid Plates

Processing Process:

High processing temperature: Hot rolling is carried out under high-temperature conditions, usually between 1100°C and 1250°C. This high-temperature processing gives stainless steel good plasticity and is suitable for rapid sheet forming.

Embossed method: The pattern is pressed onto the stainless steel plate using a patterned roller or mold at high temperatures to form an anti-slip effect.

Product Characteristics:

Good mechanical properties: Due to high-temperature processing, hot-rolled stainless steel anti-skid plates have good toughness and ductility and are suitable for bearing large loads and impacts.

Rough surface: The surface may have a certain amount of oxide scale or roughness, and further surface treatment is required to achieve a certain degree of smoothness and beauty.

Applicable Scenarios:

Industrial applications: Commonly used in industrial platforms, equipment steps, and other occasions that require wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and strong load-bearing capacity.

Heavy load occasions: Due to its high mechanical properties and thickness, it is suitable for environments that bear heavy loads.

Cold Pressing Stainless Steel Anti-Skid Plate

Processing Process:

Room temperature processing: Cold pressing is carried out at room temperature, and the pattern is pressed onto the stainless steel plate by an embossing machine and a pattern die.

Precise control: The cold pressing process can accurately control the depth, spacing, and shape of the pattern, producing a clear and regular anti-skid effect.

Product Features:

High dimensional accuracy: Due to processing at room temperature, the cold-pressed stainless steel anti-skid plate has high dimensional accuracy and surface finish, and no further surface treatment is required.

Good decorative effect: The pattern is clear and beautiful, and is often used in architectural decoration and places requiring high visual effects.

Applicable Scenarios:

Decorative use: Suitable for places requiring beautiful appearance, smooth surfaces,s and good anti-skid effect, such as commercial buildings, interior decoration, etc.

Light load occasions: Due to its relatively thin and delicate characteristics, it is suitable for light load environments, such as stairs, corridors, etc.

Summary Comparison

Processing temperature: Hot rolling is high-temperature processing, and cold pressing is room-temperature processing.

Product features: Hot rolling is suitable for heavy loads and industrial applications, with high mechanical properties; cold pressing is suitable for decoration and light load applications, with high surface accuracy and decorativeness.

Applicable scenarios: The selection of appropriate technology depends on the specific usage requirements, including load requirements, decorative effects, and surface requirements.
