What is steel channel?

Steel channel is a structural steel product that features a C-shaped cross section, with a vertical back called a web and two horizontal extensions called flanges at the top and bottom. It is light compared to products like I-beams, and weaker, though it offers more support than angle iron or flat bars, without much of an increase in weight.

It is often used as a structural component in buildings, as rafters, studs or cross-bracing, and it can also be used to create trailer frames, vehicle frames and other structures. It is both versatile and affordable. At Texas Iron & Metal, we carry a large variety of steel channel in prime grades, and often have it available in our less-than-prime and surplus inventories.

    β€œI have gone to Texas Iron & Metal twice so far to get some metal for my shop. The customer service was great. Even the guys in the yard were very helpful and respectful. The last time I went there, Esteban and the guys outside stayed a late to make sure my truck was loaded up with my material. Also, their prices are by far cheapest I have come around.”
