Plain channels are metal brackets that are specifically designed as channel support systemsfor mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations. Plain channels are different to slotted channelsin that they are smooth with no slots machined into them.
Plain channels are commonly used for structural support, including for building frames, roof trusses, fascias and more. Their mechanical applications include being used in pallets and storage ramps and chassis. They can also be used to channel wiring, plumbing or other components such as air conditioning or ventilation systems.
Plain channels are usually made from strong, durable galvanised steel or stainless steel, with a zinc coating or other finish, which is designed not to rust and can therefore be used in outdoor applications. They come in a variety of lengths and sizes depending on where they are to be used and can be attached directly to walls, ceilings and floors or to existing steel work.
