Cut Sheet

Unistrut's P3000WT has wide slots on the back side for use with 5/8" threaded rod and fasteners. The wider slots are an advantage during installation, eliminating the need for field drilling traditional slotted channel while retaining the adjustability of traditional slotted channel.

This channel is commonly used for trapeze supports, anchoring to concrete, ceiling grids, pipe, conduit, duct and cable tray supports, racks, and other general framing. For application examples, refer to our Application Showcase. It has 85% of the capacity of the solid version of the profile.

Product dimensions are 1 5/8" wide x 1 3/8" tall x 12 ga. thick; with wide slots. The slots are 11/16" wide x 2" long, 3" on center and sized for use with 5/8" threaded rod or fasteners.

Our P3000WT is available in the following finishes: Pre-Galvanized (PG), Hot-Dip Galvanized (HG), Plain (PL), Green (GR), Zinc Dichromate (ZD), Aluminum (EA), and Stainless Steel (SS & ST).
