The basic component of the support strut system is Slotted Channel, which is a slotted steel mounting rail used for making steel frames and fixtures.

Slotted Channels are the basic component of the Slotted Channel support system to be utilized not only in ventilation, air conditioning and cooling systems but also for other components that are to be suspended. The serrated inturned edges for better hold between a channel and a nut, these serrated "teeth" are compatible to sliding nuts' grooves: SNP, SNL and SNKL - which together with fasteners, beam clamps and channel brackets form the complete support system for the installation of air conditioning and ventilation system. 

All components are made of electro-galvanized steel as a standard, for outdoor applications, e.g. roof installations we recommend using hot-dipped galvanized Slotted Channel (code. LDBSO), a hot-dipped galvanized coating provides long-term resistance to outdoor weathering.
