Dutch term or phrase: tranenplaat
Context:

I am currently translating a document for a company specialing in waste disposal systems.

The sentence is as follows:

Dit nieuwe paradepaardje van [...] is inmiddels al op heel wat lokaties geplaatst. Dit model zuil bestaat in feite uit een tranenplaat met opstand + opnamesysteem, en een fraaie buitenkap.

All suggestions welcome - KudoZ points will be awarded asap.

Thanks,

Pikey

non-slip profiled plate


Explanation:
Rather you than me, Pikey! I'm not 100% sure about this translation, but I recently came across the same word; from the context I would envisage it as the kind of steel plate you see used on industrial gantries etc. with a raised 'teardrop' pattern on the surface to prevent slipping. Hope it fits.

I hope your plate is anodised and made of some aluminum alloy. If so your translation is as above.

The best of luck.
