Experiment with different colors, finishes, and panels on your building before you decide.
What is a C Channel?
Channels are secondary steel framing members that serve as a receiver channel at the end of a metal purlin. They can also be used for a number of other applications either alone or welded back-to-back. Receiving channel is also used to receive purlins or girts at the ends of the building structure.
They are 1/8 inch taller than the cee or zee profile, so the end of the profile will slip in perpendicular to the channel. The top and bottom of the profile are bolted to the flanges of the receiving channel. Metal receiving channel is typically used in carports and low strain applications.
Gauge: 14 Gauge Only (For Immediate Availability)
Sizes: 4″, 6″, 8″, 10″, 12″
Cee Channel is available in a galvanized finish. Metal C Channel is available for immediate shipping.
All SSMA products have a four part identification code which identifies the size (both depth and flange width), styles and material thickness of each number.
|Member Depth:||Flange Width:||Style:||Material Thickness:|
|(Example: 6″= 600 x 1/100 inches)||(Example: 1-5/8″= 1.625″= 162 x 1/100 inches)||(Example: Stud or Joist Section = S)||(Example: 0.054 in. = 54 mils; 1 mil = 1/1000 in.)|
|All member depths are taken in 1/100 inches.|
For all “T” sections member depth is the
inside to inside dimension.
|All flange widths are taken in 1/100 inches.||The four alpha characters utilized by|
the designator system are:
S = Stud
|Material thickness is the minimum base metal thickness in mils.|
Minimum base metal thickness represents 95% of the design thickness.
