[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Below is a message that I received regarding a new channel shape apparently intended for steel stairs stringers. Any thoughts or comments?

Subject: New MC Stringer Channel Produced by Gerdau Ameristeel

Gerdau has introduced a new stringer channel MC 12 x 14.3.
The flange is 2 1/8" allowing a railing post to be fully welded all around.
Allows for a 3/4" rod in through the flanges.
Fills the gap between the MC 12 x 10.6 and C12 x 20.7-uses less stair opening than heavier channel.
Let me know if you have any requirements. The size passed the trial rolling and I can inquire regarding the rolling and stocking schedule if you have interest.
