A metal channel is a roll formed metal strip shaped into a tube, U, J, or C shape for use in a variety of industrial applications. Metal channel profiles can be made from a variety of metals, which are chosen based on the application’s requirements. Metals include steel, aluminum, zinc, and brass, with aluminum being the most commonly utilized due to its strength, versatility, and resistance to rust and corrosion.
Metal channels are used in the building industry to absorb sound by being put between the two sides of plasterboard walls. When the walls vibrate due to sound on either side, the channels attenuate the sound waves by muffling the vibrations induced by the sound. This is only one of the many applications for extremely tough and long-lasting metal channels.
C channels are a popular type of metal channel that is frequently utilized in construction as building, wall, roof, and ceiling supports. Because sheet metal can be roll formed to match any precise specifications, the name C channel embraces a wide range of channel forms, dimensions, and sizes.
