Engineering Steel is a steel that has had small amounts of one or more alloying elements (other than carbon) such as such as manganese, silicon, nickel, titanium, copper, chromium and aluminum added. This produces specific properties that are not found in regular carbon steel.
Engineering Steels are workhorses of industry because of their economical cost, wide availability, ease of processing, and good mechanical properties. Alloy steels are generally more responsive to heat and mechanical treatments than carbon steels.
Mild Steel Floor Plate (Durbar), also known as checkered plate, is a type of lightweight steel sheet with a regular pattern of raised checkers or lines on one side, with the reverse side being flat panels.
It is called “ durbar” because the metal plates are often chequered into the pattern with double bar styles or multi bar styles.
The durbar patterns slightly raise the surface which increases grip when walked upon, making it an ideal flooring shank.
Typical Applications: Structural Steel Works, Bridge Components, Components for Offshore Structures, Power Plants, Mining and Earth-Moving Equipment, Load-Handling Equipment, Wind Tower Components
