Channel

Channel, is a standardized formed structural system used in the construction and electrical industries for light structural support, often for the support of 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 strut to underlying building structures.

The main advantage of this in construction is that there are many options available for rapidly and easily connecting lengths together and other items, using various specialized strut-specific fasteners. They can be assembled very quickly with minimal tools, which reduces costs significantly.  The installation also can often be modified or added to relatively easily if required.
