Designed for structural applications, strut channels are typically used for the suspension of pipes, ducts, and equipment. They can be interconnected and secured using strut nuts.



Steel struts that will be used in harsh environmental conditions where materials are exposed to corrosive gases, salt water, waste water and chemicals, have a green colored epoxy-based powder coating. Several coatings can also protect against high temperature, abrasion, physical damage and wear.

Steel, stainless steel or aluminum struts with a plain finish have no protective coating applied, and are therefore more susceptible to environmental conditions, particularly rust and corrosion.

A pre-galvanized strut is made of steel that has undergone the galvanization process before the manufacture of the product. Pre-galvanization can be done by zinc electroplating or hot dipping in molten zinc, which usually provides a thicker, more corrosion resistant coating.
Yellow Zinc

Yellow zinc gives steel optimal corrosion protection by forming a protective barrier, maintaining the integrity of the underlying steel. It is thicker than other finishes, giving better protection.
Hot-Dipped Galvanized

A strut of 12 gauge steel that has been dipped in molten zinc to form a protective coating is a hot-dipped galvanized strut. The galvanization offers resistance to corrosion, durability, longevity and cost effectiveness.



Aluminum strut channels give excellent protection from corrosion and can be used indoors or outdoors. They offer good strength to weight ratio and are easy to cut and handle, making installation cost efficient.
Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is used to make strut channels that are to be used where there is a greater possibility of rusting, such as outdoors or in areas where the parts may come in contact with corrosive materials.

Strut channels made of steel are widely used in the building industry to support and contain cables and to create pipe support systems.

Material Thickness

12 Ga

Strut channels are made of steel, galvanized steel or aluminum. The thickness of a sheet of any of these metals is indicated by gauge, which defines its weight bearing capability. Lower numbers mean thicker sheets. A gauge 12 strut channel is thick and strong.
14 Ga

A gauge 14 sheet of steel, galvanized steel or aluminum is slightly thinner and has less weight bearing capability than a gauge 12.
