Structural steel parallel flange channels, commonly abbreviated to PFC or C-sections due to their shape, are often used in construction as joist supports or as a replacement for steel columns due to their high strength and durability.
There are many advantages to using parallel flange channels in construction. It is easier to connect to them and flat washers can be used with a parallel flange, which is economical in terms of space.
This is in contrast to a standard rolled steel joist (RSJ) flange, the thickness of which is varied, necessitating the use of tapered washers replace universal beams.
