We off our channels in a range of grades and incremental sizes to suit most customer applications.

The applications for stainless steel channels vary dependent on the particular grade selected. Applications for 304/304L stainless steel channels include hospital equipment, instrumentation and in processing equipment for handling chemicals, dyes, crude and refined oils. 316/316L applications include chemical and pharmaceutical equipment, pump shafts and in applications where a combination of low magnetic permeability and superior corrosion resistance is a consideration. Type 321 stainless applications include the film and photo industry, power station construction, automotive and general construction.
