The system includes a full line of solid, slotted hole (SH) and long slotted hole (S) channel, and other hole patterns, as well as full line of fittings, clamps and beam supports. The system is available in wide variety of materials and finishes including pre-galvanized, hot dip galvanized, stainless steel, Dura Green™ paint and other paints.
Strut is usually formed from metal sheet, folded over into an open channel shape with inwards-curving lips to provide additional stiffness and as a location to mount interconnecting components.
The main advantage of strut channel in construction is that there are many options available for rapidly and easily connecting lengths together and other items to the strut channel, using various specialized strut-specific fasteners and bolts. It can be assembled very rapidly with minimal tools and only moderately trained labor, which reduces costs significantly in many applications. A strut channel installation also can often be modified or added-to relatively easily if needed. The only alternative to strut channel for most applications is custom fabrication using steel bar stock and other commodity components, requiring welding or extensive drilling and bolting, which has none of the above advantages.
