Get Steel C Channels for Your Project Today

C channels are a standardized channel section usually made from hot-rolled steel and used in industrial and commercial construction, as well as the building of machinery and equipment. Because of its versatility and smaller size, it’s also commonly used to create the box-like frame for automotive manufacturing. This also allows it to withstand flexing that could break I-beams or H-beams while reducing the weight of structures at the same time.


Service Steel offers a wide variety of sizes for standard channels between 20’ and 60’ in length in 5’ increments. In addition, we offer full-service processing capabilities, such as flame cutting to the desired length or galvanizing for additional corrosion resistance.

Steel C Channel FAQs

C channels are incredibly versatile and depending on their size and steel type can be used for bridge decks, automotive frames, wall studs, rafters, door frames, and much more. Their strength and light weight make them an ideal choice for a variety of applications where I-beams or other large and bulky structural steel won’t fit.

C channels’ flanges have a sloped inside surface, while MC channels are flat (although C channels manufactured with a laser can also have flat flanges).

Steel C channels can have a wide range of prices based on size, rendered services, market conditions, and other factors.
