Common Stainless Steel Sizes
Size depends on the metal you’re using, such as stainless steel, aluminium, iron, galvanized or zinc-plated.
• 2000 x 1000 mm
• 2500 x 1250 mm
• 3000 x 1500 mm
There are three main types of thin stainless steel: thin, medium and thick. Thin stainless steel is 0.5 mm thick; medium thickness is 2 mm, and thick stainless steel is 3mm. 1200 x 3000 mm has been the industry standard, but 4000 x 1500 mm and 4000 x 2000 mm are also available in this range.
ST37, S235JR, and St52 are commonly used 4-metre sheets in your application. This ensures that the product is available in thicknesses between 3 mm when you need it the most. The material can also be unrolled to create larger pieces from a coil, as long as the quality is there. ST37 and S235JR are not available in coil format, you’ll only find these two materials by buying them in sheets.
A note of caution: polished, sand-blasted or brushed sheet is always ground lengthwise, and has a maximum horizontal grinding direction of 2 meters.
