Kingspan introduces first 4mm channel
Kingspan has introduced a range of 4mm cold-rolled channel sections called Multichannel4. The new thicker sections will provide engineers and steelwork contractors with greater design flexibility and the potential to save cost. Multichannel4 will widen the applications for which the Multichannel range can be used including wind posts and secondary support members.
The new sections have an extensive range of hole and notching options providing a choice of connection details in both the flange and web. A selection of hole size and shapes is available from 7.9mm through to 150mm diameter. The range is available in section depths of 175mm to 450mm. All sections are pre-galvanised and can be supplied direct to site as single components or assemblies.
Sales and Marketing Manager Ian Hodgson said: “The 4mm cold rolled Multichannel4 sections are aimed at steelwork contractors for use in the construction of mostly single storey structures. We have developed Multichannel4 to provide designers and steelwork contractors with cost effective and speedy structural solutions.”
Multichannel4 is the result of a £4m million investment in highly innovative and flexible production lines at the Sherburn site in North Yorkshire. A technical handbook on the new channel sections is available from the Kingspan marketing department on 01944 712000 or it can be downloaded from www.kingspan.co.uk
