                Standard Sizes & Thickness Of Sheet Metal & Plate


                Fabricators typically opt for sheet metal and plates of appropriate sizes based on the dimensions and volume of the desired metal products. In the realm of metalwork, certain standard sheet sizes are favored due to their ease of processing and optimal material usage, minimizing waste—a critical consideration given rising metal costs. Efficient and successful metal sheet fabrication hinges on maximizing material utilization. Presented below are standard sheet metal and plate sizes, measured in both inches and millimeters.

                36 inch x 96 inch (914.4mm x 2438.4mm)
                36 inch x 120 inch (914.4mm x 3048.0mm)
                36 inch x 144 inch (914.4mm x 3657.6mm)
                48 inch x 96 inch (1219.2mm x 2438.4mm)
                48 inch x 120 inch (1219.2mm x 3048.0mm)
                48 inch x 144 inch (1219.2mm x 3657.6mm)

                In view of economical utilization, designers or fabricators should consider the most proper sizes before fabricating the metal sheet or plate. Understanding standard sizes can help with optimizing the processing layouts. Sometimes you can just make your processed sheet metal with a special size larger than the standard size, which means you need to waste material or cost more for the production. Or you can join two smaller metal sheets together but it is not the perfect solution, particularly when requiring aesthetics or perfection on your decoration.


                As for the thickness of sheet metal and plate, each type of material has its own standards. A piece of metal with a thickness range from 0.5mm to 6mm ( 0.025 inches to 0.124 inches) is defined as sheet metal, and the thickness of a metal piece is 6mm (0.124 inches) or more is known as a metal plate. Metal plates with a critical thickness generally can not be processed on a turret punching machine, but rather a CNC machine.  

                Difference Between Sheet & Plate Metal

                In the market, a variety of thickness options are offered. The pivotal distinction between sheet and plate metal resides in their thickness. This divergence dictates their intended applications, as distinct strength and density prerequisites guide their usage across various industries and projects.

                Sheet Metal

                Metal sheets, typically ranging from 0.5mm to 6mm in thickness, find common usage in architectural and decorative contexts rather than heavy-duty applications. Stainless steel boasts corrosion resistance, ideal for cladding, roofing, railing, and ceilings. Meanwhile, aluminium excels in thermal insulation, making it a prime choice for doors, windows, and appliance cases. Copper and brass sheets are favored for ornamental accents and mechanical parts alike.

                Plate Metal

                A metal piece becomes classified as a metal plate once it reaches a thickness of 6mm or more. This designation is particularly suited for applications prioritizing durability over weight constraints. Metal plates find extensive use in architectural marvels, ensuring their ability to withstand rigorous tests of strength and tenacity, thus contributing to the overall longevity and structural integrity of these impressive constructions.

                Advantages & Disadvantages Of Sheet Metal & Plate

                In the intricate art of sheet metal and plate fabrication, the journey from raw material to exquisite finished products encompasses a diverse array of meticulous methods. A delicate interplay of variables, including purpose, aesthetics, and budget considerations, guides the selection of the most fitting process. A profound grasp of the inherent pros and cons of sheet metal and plate manipulation empowers skilled fabricators to make astute decisions, crafting flawless end products tailored to the demands of their construction endeavors.
