Strut and Channel
Strut and channel is a standardized formed structural system used in the construction and electrical industries for light structural support, often for supporting wiring, plumbing, or mechanical components such as air conditioning or ventilation systems.
This is usually formed from a 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.
Struts usually have holes of some sort in the base to facilitate interconnection or fastening struts to underlying building structures.
One of the main advantages of strut channels in construction is that there are many options available for easily and rapidly connecting lengths together and other items to the strut channel, using various fasteners and bolts.
They can be assembled very rapidly with minimal tools, and can also be added to relatively easily if needed.
These are used to mount, brace, support, and connect lightweight structural loads in building constructions. These can include pipes, electrical and data wire, mechanical systems such as ventilation, air conditioning, and other mechanical systems.
