PVC channels are usually made of rigid PVC, rather than flexible PVC, or PVC Type 1. PVC Type 1 is the most commonly used type of PVC. These material choices offer several advantages. First, they help channels maintain a high tensile and compressive strength.

Additionally, PVC is non-flammable, dimensionally stable, resistant to weathering and relatively inexpensive. PVC channels may also be non-brittle, warp-proof, chemical and abrasion resistant and may or may not be UV stabilized. Some models come with specially designed ducts and covers for fast and efficient locking. Still others have slotting patterns to prevent wires moving out of place when its cover is removed.

Many are designed with elongated slots at the bottom to allow for flexible mounting. Channels are offered in a range of lengths, base widths, wall thickness tolerances, length tolerances, minimum and maximum temperature ratings and tensile strengths.

To customize an order of PVC channels, the customer may request specialization or modification of color, length or range. Additionally, most, if not all, manufacturers will honor requests to or will make it a practice to adhere to international standards of manufacturing and processing.

Depending on their design, PVC channels have several applications in more than one industry. General applications include capping, edging, trim and door tracking in the furniture, shopfitting, vivarium and building industries, among others.

For example, double track PVC channels for sliding door tracks are frequently stocked in T center leg and center leg designs. These are suitable for board, plywood and glass doors and vivarium glass runners. PVC channels may also be used as capping channels.

In this case, they may be J, C or U section channels, ideal for standard thickness wallboard, plywood and panel edging and trim, shower and sink and tub sealing. PVC channels are incredibly versatile, a low maintenance, durable and affordable solution.
