May 22, 2019

Aluminum checker plate for wheelchair ramp is a kind of anti-slip metal plate. It’s not a simple type of embossed aluminum sheet, because it must be strong enough to hold wight of at least two people and a wheelchair, and rough enough to stop the wheelchair from sipping down. If required more strictly, it must be long lasting as well. Why, then, is the aluminum checker plate the right type of plate for wheelchair ramp?

This shows aluminum checker plate for wheelchair ramp.

Aluminum sheets boast light weight, good strength and excellent corrosion resistance. If you pursue strength only, alloyed aluminium sheets as strong as steel are available. Thus there is no technical bottleneck in making aluminium a strong metal. The alloyed 8xxx aluminium is so strong that it’s used in planes and aerospace vehicles. Aluminium plates refer to thicker aluminum sheets, and their hardness improves with thickness. An aluminum checker plate is even stronger than mill finished plates of the same thickness, for its patterns on the surface are so skillfully arranged that they function as a strong fence. Aluminium is a corrosion resistant metal naturally. Regular alloys for aluminum checker plates are 1xxx, 3xxx and 5xxx, the natural corrosion resistance of which gets stronger successively. If the plates get anodized, they can be more corrosion resistant. Last but not least, aluminium plates have a lower comprehensive price than other metals.

Light, strong, corrosion resistant, anti-slip and cost efficient, that is why aluminum checker plate for wheelchair ramp is so popular.
