Galvanized Steel C Channel
What is a receiver channel?
Channels are secondary steel framing members that serve as a receiver channel at the end of a metal purlin. They can also be used for a number of other applications either alone or welded back-to-back. Receiving channel is also used to receive purlins or girts at the ends of the building structure.
They are 1/8 inch taller than the cee or zee profile, so the end of the profile will slip in perpendicular to the channel. The top and bottom of the profile are bolted to the flanges of the receiving channel. Metal receiving channel is typically used in carports and low strain applications.
