Road/Crossing Plates

United Rentals has one of the largest inventories of steel road plates for rent, in sizes ranging from 5 ft. x 8 ft. to 8 ft. x 20 ft. with 1-in. thickness. Rest assured that we can cover more ground to fit your project needs. Made from ASTM A-36 steel, our road plates are safe and durable for traffic and pedestrians, and they are outfitted with either a quick connect lifter or screw-in style lifter, leaving no protrusions above the plate surface.

FAQs about Road Crossing Plates

How heavy is a steel road plate?

  • Steel road plate weights can vary based on the size and thickness of the plate. Plates that are 1 in. to 2 in. thick and around 5 ft. by 8 ft. can weigh approximately 1,650 lbs. while plates that are 8 ft. by 20 ft. can weigh a little more than 6,500 lbs.

What is the formula of weight calculation?

  • A basic and easy formula to find the weight of a road plate is weight = width x length x thickness x density.
