We produce and distribute hot rolled and laser fused stainless steel channels throughout the world in both imperial and metric sizes. Please select the catalog for your region below to view a list of available standard size channels. Our range of capabilities far exceeds standard sections, though. We are a profile solutions company, and custom shapes, sizes and alloys are available upon request. If you do not see what you are looking for, please contact us, and our experienced staff will help guide you with your custom profile needs. If you can dream it up, chances are we can make it.

C-Channels are standardized channel section. The hot rolled execution has conical flanges, while the laser fused has parallel ones. Both their tolerances are defined by ASTM A 484, the laser fused execution has additionally the product standard defined by ASTM A1069.

C-Channels in stainless steel are used in commerce and industry but also in machinery and equipment building. The use of stainless steel profiles is characterized by a high flexibility of composition and a fast and cost reduced construction (through the possibility of prefabrication in the steel production). Stainless steel profiles are produced mainly from scrap and can be recycled again after utilization so new resources can be conserved.

Hot and cold rolled steel channels, often referred to as U or C metal channels, are perfect for all industrial applications, including structures, general fabrication, manufacturing, maintenance, and repairs. Since it’s easy to cut, weld, form, and machine, ASTM A36 steel channel is the preferred choice for industry specialists worldwide.

Both hot rolled, and cold rolled steel channel options provide a range of beneficial qualities that make it a standard fixture for many commercial and industrial applications. Steel channel advantages include:Excellent weldability

Good wear resistance

Enhanced machining capabilities

Superior bending and forming

Hot Rolled Steel Channel ASTM A36

Hot rolled steel channel has a mild steel structural C shape with inside radius corners that are ideal for all structural applications.The shape of this product is ideal for added strength and rigidity over steel angle when a project's load is vertical or horizontal.

Additionally, this steel shape is easy to weld, cut, form, and machine.

Hot Rolled Steel Channel Applications

Hot rolled steel channel is used in numerous types of industrial applications, including:General fabrication





Ceiling systems

Construction supports

Cold Rolled Steel Channel ASTM A1008

Also known as cold-rolled channel (CRC), cold-rolled u-channel is strong, resilient, and provides increased yield strength and hardness qualities that hot-rolled steel does not possess.Cold Rolled Steel Channel Applications

Cold rolled ASTM A1008 steel channel products are used for the following applications:

Drop ceilings

Structural bracing



Framing designs

Precision Steel Channel Secondary Services

When you order from Industrial Metal Supply (IMS), we can cut your metal to size and deliver it the next day. If you require more extensive services than just sawing or shearing, we also offer the following advanced metal cutting options: Hi-Def Plasma Cutting

Tube Laser

Flatbed Laser

Water Jet Cutting

Typical ApplicationsUsed for general structural purposes, for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of buildings, bridges, machinery, etc. Used for booms, rails, braces, frames, brackets, cross-members, liners, truck trailers, truck beds, racks, etc.Grade: A-36Finish: Hot Rolled

A wire brush is an abrasive tool that has stiff bristles made from a variety of rigid materials designed to clean and prepare metal surfaces. The filaments of wire brushes are small diameter pieces of inflexible material that are closely spaced together as a means for cleaning surfaces that require aggressive and abrasive tools. The means of applying the brush can be either manual or mechanical depending on the type of brush and the surface to be treated.

The manufacturing of a unique type of wire brush called a wire drawn brush, which is a very sturdy and durable brush that is made by a process that ensures filament retention.

A metal channel is a roll formed metal strip that has been shaped into a tube or a U, J, or C shape to be used in several industrial applications. Various types of metal are ideal for use as metal channel profiles and are chosen according to the needs of the application. The types of metals include steel, aluminum, zinc, or brass with aluminum being the most used due to its resilience, adaptability, and rust and corrosion resistance.

In the construction industry, metal channels provide a means of absorbing sound by being placed between the two sides of plasterboard walls. When the walls vibrate because of sound on either side of a wall, the channels dampen the sound waves by muffling the vibrations caused by the sound. This is only one of the many uses for exceptionally durable and long lasting metal channels.

C channels are one of the more common types of metal channels and are widely used in construction as building, wall, roof, and ceiling supports. The term C channel encompasses a wide variety of channel types, dimensions, and sizes since sheet metal can be roll formed to fit any specific requirements.

The term C channel comes from the roll formed profile appearance of the metal, which has the shape of a C. A C channel is shaped using the U shape with the addition of flanges on the two sides. In some cases, the flanges are completely crimped back on the sides to form a crimped C channel. There are a limitless number of channels that are labeled as C channels that come in a wide variety of shapes and forms to fit the needs of various applications.

Metal channels are produced by roll forming a sheet or strip of metal. Roll forming is a continuous bending of a metal strip as it passes through a set of consecutive rollers, also known as stands, that incrementally deform a portion of the metal until the desired shape is achieved. Once the shaping and configuring is completed, the formed parts are cut to the desired lengths.

Roll forming is an inexpensive method for producing large quantities of parts without the need for secondary processing or finishing. There is a limitless number of metal channel profiles that can be produced using roll forming.
