Utility Work Trucks, Tow Tractors and Personnel Carriers

Utility Tough:

Rigidized® Metals Corporation's brand of Rigid-tex® tread plate patterns, most specifically embossed pattern RTP® has been used for many utility applications. Consistent pattern, consistent flatness, durability and attractiveness are what keep engineers specifying our product over and over again. Rigid-tex® can manufacture this product in stainless, galvannealed, cold rolled and hot rolled carbon.

Work Site Rugged:

Rigidized® Metals Corporation's brand of Rigid-tex® tread plate patterns RTP® and RSS.3 give the engineer and designer choices on their next work truck application. Compared to traditional flat back tread plate, Rigid-tex® metals reduce weight without jeopardizing strength. Our product is flatter, has a consistent pattern and can be manufactured in any alloy with the most popular being galvannealed. Specify Rigid-tex® tread plate on your next work truck for long lasting life. Contact a representative to learn more.
