Instruction of C Channel

Channel steel is a hot-rolled low-carbon steel structure C type with inner radius angle. It is an ideal choice for all structural applications, general manufacturing, manufacturing and maintenance. Steel trough is widely used in industrial maintenance, agricultural appliances, transportation equipment, truck bed, trailer, etc. Its C-shaped or U-shaped configuration is ideal. When the load of your project is vertical or horizontal, it increases strength and stiffness than angle steel. The shape of this steel is easy to weld, cut, form and process with appropriate equipment and knowledge.

Applications of C Channel

Channel steel is available in a wide range of sizes and thicknesses. As a result, it is used in many industrial applications. One of the most common applications for this type of channel steel is for frame supports in automotive manufacturing. The individual sections of this channel steel are joined together to form a box-like structure. They can be joined to a wide, flat surface to form an I-beam. The versatility of C-channel construction allows for greater productivity compared to I-beams and other steel elements. c-channel also makes different structures relatively light. It also ensures strength and stiffness for mechanical frames and various fabrication applications.

  1. Tracks and sliders for machines, door openings, etc.
  2. Columns and supports for building corners, walls and railings.
  3. Protective edges of walls.
  4. Decorative elements of a building, such as ceiling access systems.
  5. Frame or frame materials for buildings and machines.

Resistance property of C Channel

C-channel steel is also suitable for outdoor applications. This steel contains more nickel, copper or chromium, which makes it more resistant to corrosion. The combination of light weight and corrosion resistance makes it an outstanding choice for towers, construction equipment, light poles and many other objects. This C-channel steel is suitable for use in any environmental conditions.

Packing and Shipping of C Channel

The packaging of our products (eg. weathered corrugated steel, weathering corrugated steel,corten steel columnl,hot rolled stainless steel plate) ensures that they will not be damaged during transport. For export purposes, the usual export packaging is done in wooden crates or crates. All hr sheet metal, plates and coils are marked with a logo (company mark), grade, size and batch number. On request, we can customise the marking on the product,such as spcc cold rolled steel.

  • First, we use solvents to clean the surface of the steel to remove organic matter on the surface.
  • Then toolsare used by ours to remove rust (wire brush) to remove loose or inclined scales, rust, welding slag, etc.
  • We use pickling.
  • Galvanizing is divided into hot-dip galvanizing and cold-dip galvanizing. Hot-dip galvanizing is not easy to rust, and cold galvanizing is easier to rust.

Available specification channel steel is divided into “C” type and “U” type according to its appearance. Therefore, there are two criteria to show the size of channel steel – UPE and UPN. UPE refers to C-channel with parallel flange, while UPN refers to U-channel with conical flange. You can find detailed dimensions in specific types of channel steel, such as A36 channel steel. Custom channel sizes are available.

The difference between C-Channel and Box-Channel is the way they appear in prints, drawings, sketches and other images. on C-Channel the opening or gap is on one side of the image, whereas on Box-Channel and open seam square or rectangular tubes the opening or gap is at the top or bottom of the image. All 3 products are different names for the same part. Our standard size table on this page provides a summary of the sizes of the available tools. The size tables give the dimensions as they will be on the top or bottom rather than the side openings or gaps of the print. For the image of the part in this configuration, the sides are considered to be the legs and the width is considered to be the web. The flanges on either side of the opening are considered the returns. johnson bros has the ability to make sides or legs up to 5″ and widths can be up to 18″, depending on the size of the legs and returns. The maximum raw flat coil width that can be used is 19″. Inward flanges can also be added to the return to turn the Box Channel into a Strut Channel or what is also known as a frame.

MC channels have smaller flange slope than “C” channels. Common applications include structural support, trailers, and other architectural uses. ASTM A36 / A36M-08 is the standard specification for carbon structural steel.
