IMS provides aluminum tread plate two alloys 3003 and 6061.  The tread plate comes in three styles: Embossed, 5 Bar, and Tread Brite.  5-bar Tread Plate(3003) defined by its pattern which has five bars crisscrossing rather than regular tread plate which is one bar crisscrossing.  Fire Truck Quality Tread Plate - (3003) was developed and introduced to the market in response to the fire truck industry’s need for a 3003-H22 diamond pattern tread plate with improved brightness and button machining characteristics.
