Steel Road Plate Hire Sydney
Our steel road plates for hire, also known as traffic plates, are heavy duty, perfect for roadworks, building and construction sites.
What is a road plate used for?
Road plates are used for street crossings, covering trenches, covering road potholes, temporary access over unstable or muddy terrain and they can also be used to temporarily cover holes to avoiding unnecessary back filling. This can enable continued vehicle access during road works and excavations. It is important to ensure that the road plates are pinned to the ground when in use, through the available holes.
When you hire road plates, consider whether you will also need some traffic management equipment which we also supply such as barricades, barriers, temporary fencing and road safety signs. Hiring from The Plant Yard is a much more cost effective alternative than to buy steel road plates.
Steel road plate Sizes
What size and thickness is used will depend on your job. They come in a large range of sizes, from 0.5m to 6m long, ranging from 16mm to 40mm. They are also AS3679 compliant. The smaller sizes are typically used for footpaths, pavements and driveways. Our 2.4m range is our most popular, most commonly used for streets, highways and construction sites. They can also be used for covering hardened areas such as non reinforced concrete with heavier trucks, cranes and machinery. Our 6m range is more commonly used in larger continually flat zones. This includes areas such as playing fields, lawns, airports, dockside and large industrial areas. Our various steel plates can be found along with their sizes below. If centre lifting plates are required, please let us know.
