P3000 – 1-5/8″ x 1-3/8″, 12 Gage, Solid

This channel is commonly used for trapeze supports, seismic bracing, ceiling grids, pipe, conduit, duct and cable tray supports, racks, and other general framing.

Product dimensions are 1 5/8″ wide x 1 3/8″ tall x 12 ga. thick, solid. Punched holes are also available for ease of installation. This channel type provides a shorter alternative to its closest comparable, P1000.

Our P3000 is available in the following finishes: Pre-Galvanized (PG), Unistrut Defender (DF), Hot-Dip Galvanized (HG), Plain (PL), Green (GR), Zinc Dichromate (ZD), Stainless Steel (SS or ST) and Aluminum (EA).
