Steel road plates used in the construction and traffic industry to reinforce grounds, cover potholes, make temporary crossings over trenches and other sensitive areas expecting heavy load bearing from vehicles and such.
Features to consider when choosing steel road plates:
Plate panel size, coverage and thickness recommendations
Load bearing features
Use of fixings and machining processes
Anti-skid and Airside treatments
Safe handling, installation and transportation
Edge, ramp & chamfering details
Suitable transport solutions
low emission zone (LEZ) and other regulations
We offer in our ArmorTrax® Heavy Metal series the following steel road plates available in both the S235JR & S355J2+N material ( Se material explanation at the bottom of this post**).
Other common names: Road plates, crossing plates, trench plates, iron mats, metal sheets, steel road plates*….
*Not to be confused with the “Steel plate construction” that is a method of constructing heavy reinforced metal sheets mixed with cement, used commonly in the building construction industry. Normally each assembly in the manufacturing process has two parallel plates joined with welded stringers. The assemblies are moved to the job site and placed with a crane as walls.
S235JR = Soft structural steel easy to weld and bend.
