The Dimensions of Stainless Steel Channels
The dimensions of stainless steel channels are the same dimensions that apply to each of our products. There is height, width, thickness, and length; these all need to fit certain measurements. However, the height and width are key factors in deciding what kind of channel you will want to purchase. Depending on these factors you could be purchasing a C-channel or a U-channel.
Though there are no specific terms, generally the parts of stainless steel channels are called ‘body’ and ‘legs’. A long body with short legs are ‘c’ channels, while a short body with long legs are called ‘u’ channels.
Hot rolled stainless steel channels: dimensional tolerances meet ASTM A276, ASTM A484, ASTM A479, ASME SA479. Laser fused stainless steel channels are produced to ASTM A1069/A1069M/11, dimensional tolerances, and grades according to ASTM A276, ASTM A484, ASTM A479/A479M
The Two Types of Stainless Channels
C-Channel: C-channels tend to have shorter legs and thinner bodies overall. This way it can resemble the ‘c’ shape that it is named after. C channel steel available in 304L or 316L. Stainless C channels can withstand corrosive environments and are good around chemicals, acids, and salt water. The material is available in laser fused non-tapered or Hot Rolled tapered.
