A572-50 High Strength Steel Yard Ramps
When it comes to steel yard ramps, we insist on leading the industry, and to achieve this we only employ the best materials. A572-50 HSLA steel plates make it possible to create ramps that provide superior strength in a surprisingly light package; two attributes that have our customers beating a path to our door.
Steel Yard Ramps being a little harder to form and a little heavier than aluminum; If moving a slightly heavier ramp isn’t a concern, Steel Ramps is the best option when dealing with heavyweights. Make dealing with is ramps that can’t handle the loads a thing of the past. Trust the strength and durability of A572-50 Steel and you will never be disappointed.
They employ hot rolled structural steel A572-50 plates being the ideal material for the job. Tolerance, concentricity, and straightness are major factors in constructing the ultimate ramp. Additionally, strong carbide and nitride formers produce a small and fine grain, giving the best notch toughness. Each halving of the grain diameter produces a 50% increase in tensile strength.
A572-50 steel is tailor-made for our portable or mobile yard ramps, and our dock-to-ground ramps, where extra strength and reduced end product weight are paramount. These ramps being constructed with solid steel side curbs to help prevent runoff including serrated grating for high traction and durability. Snow and rain will fall right through, along with an incredible lifespan and durability.
Main Features of A572-50 Plate Steel
A572-50 steel is a complex blend of materials that work together to form the ultimate in strength and functionality. Some of its features when used in our ramps include:
- Blend of columbium and vanadium.
- Trace elements of manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and silicon.
- Increased corrosion resistance with the addition of copper, nickel, silicon, and chromium.
- Superior resilience and durability from a manufacturing process that requires 25% – 30% more power than standard carbon steel plates.
Normal hot rolled steel does not guarantee structural properties. When employing the steel to A36 it guarantees the steel strength to 36k min yield. At Lots A Ramps they upgrade to A572-50, which has a 50k pound minimum yield thanks to its more refined alloys, which give it more strength and weld-ability. Making this is the best by far material to construct a yard ramp.
