Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the standard size of steel plate?

    Steel plate is typically stocked in 36″, 48″, and 60″ widths and 96″, 120″, and 144″ lengths. Kloeckner Metals can also provide cut-to-size steel plate to exact customer specification.

  • How do I calculate the weight of steel plate?

    The weight of steel plate depends on its thickness, width, and length. To calculate the weight of steel plate, please use our carbon steel plate weight calculator.

  • What thickness does steel plate come in?

    Steel plate generally starts at a thickness of 3/16″. Under 3/16″, it is considered sheet, not plate. It is precisely because of plate’s thickness that it is found in structural applications like heavy equipment, construction, bridges, and more. Above 3″, steel plate is known as heavy steel plate. Kloeckner Metals routinely stocks A36 up to a thickness of 16″, but we will supply plate to customer specification, in thickness and other physical properties.

  • What is steel plate used for?

    Steel plate is just one of many types of steel that are commonly offered by steel plate suppliers. Other types include bars, sheets, structurals, pipes, tubes, and more. Steel plate can be further divided into different types—including structural steel plate, HSLA steel plate, abrasion-resistant steel plate, and more—and are selected based on the physical and mechanical properties that result from their unique chemical compositions. You will find steel plate in structural and construction applications, marine and offshore equipment, military applications, and pressure vessels.

  • How is steel plate made?

    Steel plate is made by rolling steel through different sets of rollers until it achieves a desired thickness and specific material properties. Each stage of the rolling process results in a steel plate with a distinct properties and finish.
