C Channels are mainly used to mount, brace, support and connect lightweight structural loads in structures. These include pipes, electrical and data wires, mechanical systems such as ventilation and air conditioning, solar panel mounting system.
It is also used for other applications that require a strong framework, such as equipment racks, workbenches, shelving systems etc.
Strut channel provides light structural support for wiring, plumbing, or mechanical components. It has inward-facing lips for mounting nuts, braces, or connecting angles to join lengths of strut channels together. It is also used to connect pipes, wire, threaded rods, or bolts to walls. Most strut channel has slots in the base to facilitate interconnection or to fasten the strut channel to building structures. Strut channel is easy to connect and modify, and different channel styles can be mixed and matched. It’s commonly used in the electrical and construction industries. Strut channel can be used to create a permanent structure that supports wiring around a property, or it can temporarily store different types of machinery and wires for short-term projects.
