RE: RE: Channel Spec

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I think I remember seeing some old drawings where channels were designated like that to indicate that they were installed in weak axis bending with the flange tips pointed upward.  It doesn’t sound like that’s your situation, though.
