6061 Aluminum Plate

Aluminum treadplate is commonly known as ''Diamond plate'' or “tread plate.” It is strong, lightweight, and provides protection and traction in high-traffic areas. Aluminum plate 606 provides strength, skid resistance, and durability. Aluminum diamond plate 6061 has limited formability but is easy to weld and machine. This aluminum product also offers increased strength and corrosion resistance and has many practical applications. 6061 aluminum plate is available in the following tread options:
  • Embossed Firetruck-Quality (FTQ) Tread Plate - Is the same as Tread Brite in all aspects, except for a slightly modified pattern that provides even better grip.
  • 5-Bar Tread Plate - Is defined by its unique pattern, with small, individual blocks of five parallel bars oriented perpendicularly to their neighboring blocks.
  • Tread Brite Tread Plate - Is the most common type of aluminum tread plate, used for a wide variety of applications.
  • Mill Finish Tread Plate - Has a matte-finish diamond pattern and is used primarily in structural applications that do not require bending.
