Lipped & Open Channels
C-channel and lip channel were Tubecon's first steps into the field of cold rolled open profiles. Commonly used in steel construction, lip channels offers a versatile yet very cost effective alternative which neatly compliments the wide range of tubing solutions that Tubecon has been manufacturing and supplying for years.
Tubecon has the capacity to manufacture a variety of cold-formed open sections and lip channels catering for a wide spectrum of industries in South Africa. Being able to roll these open channels from a variety of materials, including pre-galvanized Z275 and Z450 materials and 3CR12 stainless steel, provides our customers a solution for the majority of their steel and structural problems. The table below indicates sizes, material and wall thickness combinations of common cold formed steel open sections and lip channels:
Standard Lip Channels: (Other size lip channels are available on request)
|Lip Channel Dimensions||Standard Material and Wall Thickness*|

Being a latecomer to this market, brings the advantage of the latest production technology and highest quality manufacturing processes available. Computer-controlled equipment enables Tubecon to cold roll almost any U-channel, lip channel or open profile to the custom requirements of our customers. Cutting to size and within the customers tolerance preference, along with the capacity of in-line hole punching on lip channels and open sections adds great value to our product.
Within the range displayed in the sketch, any desired size is possible.
Again, large volumes are no prerequisite to obtain a custom product.
True to our policy, fast delivery times and special lengths apply as much to this product as they do to our steel tubing.
