Skid-Resistant Crossing Plates Skid-Resistant plates comply with city regulations Crossing a traditional steel crossing plate during or after a rain shower or snowfall can be highly risky. That is why United Rentals now offers skid-resistant crossing plates in various sizes. Some city regulations require that plates have skid resistance equal to or greater than the adjacent road surface. Avoid costly fines and increase jobsite safety. Ask your local representative for more details. Plate Locks Road Plate Securing System Save time and money by utilizing the Plate Locks road plate securing system. Plate Locks are a high visibility safety orange ramp that surrounds your road plates keeping them in place. They are reusable, recyclable, and anchored to the pavement so that they can be left in place while work or inspections are being done and the plate can be placed back in the frame at the end of the day. No more scraping shoveling and sweeping up a cold mix mess from around the work site, and no more worries about a plate coming off of its trench.
