P3301WT – 1-5/8″ x 1 3/4″, 12 Gage, Back-to-Back, Slotted

Unistrut’s P3301WT (back-to-back slotted) has slots on the back side for use with 5/8″ threaded rod and fasteners. The wider slots are an advantage during installation, eliminating the need for field drilling traditional slotted channel while retaining the adjustability of traditional slotted channel.

This slotted option is popular because it’s adjustable and accommodates large diameter threaded rod, yet has modest load capacity loss versus the solid version. It has 85% of the capacity of the solid version of the profile.

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

Product dimensions are 1 5/8″ wide x 1 3/4″ tall x 12 ga. thick; back-to-back with slots. The slots are 2″ wide x 11/16″ long, 3″ on center and sized for use with 5/8″ threaded rod or fasteners.

Our P3301WT is available in the following finishes: Pre-Galvanized (PG), Hot-Dip Galvanized (HG), Plain (PL), Green (GR), Zinc Dichromate (ZD) and Stainless Steel (SS).
