Steel channel has been classified into "C" and "U" types depending on its outlook. Hence there are two standards to show the channel dimensions - UPE & UPN. UPE is for the C channel steel with parallel flanges while UPN for the U channel steel with tapered flanges. You can find the size details in the specific type of channel steel like A36 steel channel. Bespoke channel dimensions are available.
Steel channel are one of the most popular parts in construction and manufacturing. Apart from this, C channel & u channel are also used in our everyday life if you have so much attention to them like stair stringer.
