In a Steel Channel, Roller Die pairs the known benefits of steel with our unparalleled experience producing Channels. Our engineers manage one of the most extensive catalogs of standard Channel shapes in the United States. We manufacture many types of Steel Channels, often with free tooling from our parts library:
- Steel Box Channels
- Steel C Channel (Steel Cee Channels)
- Steel J Channels
- Steel U Channels (including Steel Hat Channels)
- Steel Z Channels (Steel Zee Channels)
Roller Die is able to keep the price of Steel Channels low, due to our strategic buying when steel prices are low. We can ensure the lowest available material costs for all Steel Angle projects. Read about current steel prices in the Raw Materials category of our blog.
Preferred in many industries and Channel applications, Steel Channels maximize the sheer strength of the alloy. Below is a list of steel varieties available to produce Steel Channels, with mass and durability notes included. (Note: Ksi = pound-force per square inch.)
Tolerance Capabilities of Steel
Cross-Sectional Standard Tolerances: +/-.031"
Angularity: +/- 1 degree
Straightness: Maximum Deviation of .015"/ft
Twist: Maximum Deviation of 1/4 degree per ft
Length Tolerances of Steel Channels
Lengths up to 36" : +/-.030"
Lengths 36" to 120" : +/-.060"
Lengths 120" to 240" : +/-.125"
Lengths greater than 240" : +/-.250"
**Note: In some cases, closer tolerances than the standard (listed above) can be achieved, but may require additional tooling.
