Aluminum Plates vs. Stainless Steel Surfaces on ADA Ramps

July 15, 2008

There are important factors to consider for those working with ADA ramps. When using an aluminum plate as the substrate, there are different surface options to evaluate before making a final decision.

One surface option would be Aluminum. The aluminum, being a softer alloy, is more suited to lighter duty applications. Another option would be a Stainless Steel surface. Stainless Steel will offer greater durability and longevity. The Stainless Steel surface will have a surface hardness of over 60 on the Rockwell “C” Scale and bond at over 4000 psi.
