Steel plates are metal sheets 3/16 of an inch and greater. They can bear heavy loads, reinforce structures and products, and can be shaped into different tools and objects. Most commonly they are used in construction projects as foundations or frames for buildings. Steel plate suppliers like Texas Iron and Metal understand how important choosing the right steel plate is to your projects.
When choosing a steel plate what it is being used for should inform your decision of thickness and size as well as the grade of the steel. Also conditions the plate will be under, such as temperature and exposure to the elements, are important to keep in mind. For example, if the plate steel will be in extreme heat or cold it is important to know this in order to pick a more durable steel. Similarly when considering corrosion it is better to use a plate with a more resistant make-up such as stainless steel rather than other others that are more susceptible to the elements.
