Stainless Steel Plate Sizes: Your Ultimate Thickness Chart

What are the specifications and dimensions of stainless steel plates?

To be more precise, what is the standard size of a stainless steel plate?

For instance, the typical widths of 1mm thick stainless steel plates are 1 meter and 1.219 meters.

Typically, the size of hot-rolled stainless steel plates is 1.5 meters by 6 meters (width by length).

1. Stainless steel plate size specification table

What is the width of an entire stainless steel plate? How many specifications are available for stainless steel widths? What are the dimensions of stainless steel plates in various thicknesses in terms of width and length?

Considering these stainless steel plate specifications, I have compiled the size specifications for common stainless steel plates (thickness, width, length):

Specification table of stainless steel plate Unit: mm
Width * Length
(cold rolling)
(hot rolling)
Other dimensionsCustomized on demand


  • 1. “Common, less and -” refer to stainless steel plates of a certain thickness, which are common, less or need to be customized in the market;
  • 2. The common specifications and sizes of steel plates with different thicknesses are different. “Common” means that steel plates with this thickness and size are easier to purchase;
  • 3. This table lists the specifications of stainless steel plates according to their thickness.

It should be noted that these steel plate dimensions are commonly used stainless steel plate dimensions in production and life, not national mandatory standards.

2. Standard length and width of steel plate

1. The common dimensions (width x length) of stainless steel plates with a thickness of 1mm or less are 1000mm x 2000mm and 1219mm x 2438mm. (These two sizes are widely available and therefore easier to purchase.)

  1. For thicknesses of 3mm or more, there are two options: cold-rolled stainless steel plates and hot-rolled stainless steel plates. The standard size for the former is 1500mm x 3000mm, while the latter is 1500mm x 6000mm.
  2. Cold-rolled stainless steel plates have a thickness of 1-3mm and standard dimensions of 1219mm x 2438mm, 1219mm x 3048mm, and 1500mm x 3000mm.
  3. If a stainless steel plate with an unconventional width and thickness is required, it must be custom-made.

Please note that the standard size of stainless steel plates (or the standard length and width of steel plates) can vary from country to country and region to region. There is no national mandatory standard in this regard. The above-mentioned commonly used steel plate sizes are for reference only.

By understanding the general size, width, and length of stainless steel plates, it will be easier to procure, prepare goods, and cut to size.

I hope the compiled stainless steel specifications, models, and size chart will be useful to you.

3. What is the length and width of a 304 stainless steel sheet?

What are the length and width of a 304 stainless steel plate?

For hot-rolled plates, 304 is 6 meters long and 1.5 meters wide.

For cold-rolled sheets, 304 sheets are available in lengths of 3 meters, 1.5 meters, 2.44 meters, or 1.22 meters and with a width of 1.5 meters.
