Default 5bar alloy flooring?

After my last post about dodgy steel,
I have just been looking on Parker steel site.

I've got a question about alloy flooring.
I used 2mm 5251 alloy plate.
On Parkers steel they are showing 2mm 5bar tread 5754 alloy plate

Assuming the 5bar tread is raised up.
Does anyone know if this is 2mm plus the tread thickness
or 2mm including the tread?
Also what is the difference between 5251 and 5754?

Cheers David

Give me 5 mins, and I will pop out the back and measure the sheet I have

Done

2mm without the bar (ie on the flat bits)
Approx 3.2mm with the bars

So 2mm PLUS the tread

Hope that helps

David, I think the numbers refer to hardness ie 5000 is half hard (may be wrong )

Let me google that for you

Second result - Roymech - a very very handy site for many engineering related questions, bolt sizes and pitches etc.
