### Chequered plate weight calculation guide

Chequered plates are steel flooring used in industrial structures. Normally the maximum spacing of chequered plates are between 1 metre to 1.2 metre.

Chequered plate thickness is measured excluding the chequeres. That is to say 6mm thick chequred plate means 6 thick plate with chequres above it. Hence the weight of chequred plate comes higher as compared to plain plates. Weight of chequeres are approximately 6.1 kg/m² over and above the plate weight.

Dead weight of chequered plates are as below.
1. 5mm thick chequred plate weight = 45.35 kg/m²
2. 6mm thick chequred plate weight = 53.2 kg/m²
3. 7mm thick chequred plate weight = 61.05 kg/m²
4. 8mm thick chequred plate weight = 68.9 kg/m²
5. 10mm thick chequred plate weight = 84.6 kg/m²
6. 12mm thick chequred plate weight = 100.3 kg/m²
Weight of chequered plate (kg/m²)= thickness (m) x 7.85 (kg/m³) + 6.1

If you want to find weight of total plate to be used in project, then

Total weight of chequered plate (kg) = Length (m) x Width (m) x (Thickness (m) x 7.85 (kg/m³) + 6.1(kg/m²))

PLEASE MENTIONED INDIAN STANDARD CODE FOR CALCULATION OF CHEQURED PLATE WEIGHT
ExploDicson said…
I've reworked the calculation base on some online standards:

the formula I get is

5mm =. (0.005*7850)+(5*0.16)
6mm = (0.006*7850)+ (6*0.16)
and so on...

you can cross-check here supplier's standard.
Please correct me if I'm wrong
