Steel channels are a structural steel shape whose cross-section looks like a squared-off C. There are variations on the shape and size to adapt to certain applications or uses. Some common uses of steel channels are wall studs (instead of wood), roof support, door frames, vehicle frames, and more. Service Steel Warehouse carries a complete line of hot-rolled steel channels, including miscellaneous and standard C channels. Our inventory includes channels ranging in sizes from 3” to 18”.
