It is always important to check and verify the quality of the building during construction. Whether it is private or public sector in the UK, it is vital to correctly organize the wiring in a building to ensure the safety of people. For providing support to power communication and distribution of cables wiring, unistrut in UK is widely used. They come in the form of wires, cables and channels. They are mostly composed of steel materials that make them more reliable than other products.
Different types of strut channels:
Pre-galvanized channel – They have a slide coating of zinc over mild steel. These types of channels are basically used for internal building purpose. These channel’s framing comes in the form of different hardware materials like stud nuts, spring nuts, square washers, hex head scrap screws, lock washers etc, which are used for fastening fittings and channels easily.
Galvanized hot dipped channel – After normal finishing, the channel tray is dipped into molten zinc so that no part is left without zinc. This makes the tray plated with zinc completely and makes it thicker. These channels are mostly used at places where chances of damage due to corrosion can occur in maximum amount.
Steel channels – These are most useful channels as they ensure the safety of wiring and mechanical materials. They come in a range from 3m to 6m. Steel channels also have great importance in marine equipments as they give high resistance from corrosion and rusting. They are also used at places where resistance is needed from chemical or organic substances like hotel kitchens.
