U-Channels are a roll formed shape similar to J-Channels, with the main difference being that their open sides are of equal length.U Channels (including Hat Channels) and J-Channels often require extra inline fabrication during the roll forming process, all of which Roller Die can handle with state-of-the-art machinery.
Hat Channels, which are a type of U Channel, look exactly as their name suggests. Like a top hat, the Hat Channel is composed of two outward flanges (the brim), plus two vertical dimensions (the sides of the hat). Another description would be that Hat Channels are roll formed U Channels, with the bottom (or horizontal web) perpendicular to two vertical legs containing outward flanges. These flanges are also referred to as “wings” or “fins.”
Our roll form machines provide a smooth, attractive finish, and can hold extremely tight tolerances and provide sharp contours. As always, free tooling is likely available, and our expert engineers can easily manage any U Channels (including Hat Channels) dimensions not listed in our standard tooling lists.
