Mild Steel Channel
Uses and properties of mild steel channel.
Mild steel channel, also commonly known as U channel or C channel is measured by width x depth x weight per metre.
These sections are manufactured from S275JR grade steel and have excellent machinability and weldability. Our stocks are available in mill finish, red oxide, or Zintec finish to offer a range of corrosion resistance properties to suit your project. To increase corrosion resistance mild steel is normally painted or galvanised after fabrication.
Mild steel channel is widely used in civil engineering and construction to support floor joists and to weight bear above window and door gaps where the structural load does not require a I beam.
If you are uncertain whether your project requires mild steel C channel or an I beam, we recommend you consult a structural engineer or other qualified professional.
Mild steel channel is supplied in lengths up to 6 metres long and can be easily cut, drilled, and machined. It is particularly suited to all methods of welding. Mild Steel Channel is produced to grade EN 10025-2 S275JR one of the most widely use steel specifications for general construction.
