If so, can we change the specs page to not say "aluminum thickness" but just "thickness", and then quote Al or Steel? For every plate listed? Most values are 3mm - 4mm, and the assumption is that the material is Al.

The next question is: what is the relative durability and protectivenss of the two materials in these specific thickenesses (3mm steel vs. 6mm Al) for their similar weight?
Thanks for your comment, I did the changes in the list.
No idea about the durability, but probably steel is stronger, hope someone can help.
