    You could use steel checker plate about 2mm should be fine, or use Galvanised sheet about 2mm is OK too.
    1.6 is a bit light and bends quite easy with a heavy load.

    3mm Steel tread plate is around $170 for a1200x2400 sheet here in Adelaide, canít imagine the cost being significantly different in Brisvegas. I need to put a new floor in my 7x4, I was going to buy the sheet and have the supplier guillotine to the length I need, that would add $15, again canít imagine the pricing would alter radically in Qld
