Aluminum Plate and Sheet Metal Sources
Aluminum Plate vs. Aluminum SheetAluminum sheet and aluminum plate are essentially the same; the only proper distinction is their respective thickness. One of the main differences between aluminum plate and sheets is that sheet metal is under .249” thick, while plate metal is .250” and above. This distinction allows aluminum metal plate to be used for lighter-duty applications, while aluminum plate is reserved for heavier-duty applications that require a thicker cut.
Aluminum Metal Sheet
- Aluminum metal sheet is any aluminum sheet metal thicker than foil but thinner than 6mm
- AL sheet comes in many forms, including diamond plate, expanded, perforated, and painted aluminum sheet
- Primarily used for lighter-duty applications
Aluminum Metal Plate
- Aluminum plate is any aluminum sheet metal that is thicker than 6mm
- Primarily used for heavy-duty applications
Aluminum Metal Sheet & Plate ApplicationsDue to their physical properties, aluminum metal sheet and metal plate are extremely valuable for various industrial applications, some of which include:
- Bridge railing components
- Wall panels
