Plastic Capping Channel - Made to Order or Stock

Tubeway manufacture and stock plastic capping profiles which are commonly used for board edging and trimming, in the furniture, shopfitting and display industries. The plastic C Section (also known as plastic U Section) typically has legs of equal length that taper to grip the wallboard or panel, whilst the plastic J Section has legs of unequal length. Both of these rigid PVC capping trims are easy to cut or mitre, and push-fit for installation. For more robust board capping, there are Heavy Duty capping sections, whilst for prevention of liquid damage to kitchen kickboards and worktop bases, there is our clear Plinth Seal, with co-extruded flexible lip, and for glazing or cushioning applications, a range of flexible PVC

capping. PVC Tank Top is used for hooking onto fish and reptile tanks and supporting the lids.

We can meet your requirements for plastic capping in several different ways:

  • from our wide stock range below,
  • from a production run of 500m+ with a stock C Section or J Section tool,
  • from a production run using one of the additional plastic channel tools listed further down,
  • from a new tool, cut to the specification you need

If you need more information or want to discuss your requirements in more detail, please contact us with your Plastic Capping Channel Requirements.

If you need other plastic profiles that complement our plastic capping, you can click through to our clip on edging, plastic H sections, plastic T sections and plastic corner profiles pages. We also stock and supply Aluminium Channel with parallel legs.

Production Plastic Capping


If your plastic channel requirement is getting into hundreds of metres, it can be much more cost effective to have a production run of C Section or J Section capping than to buy large quantities from stock. Not only can this save you money, it allows the plastic capping to be cut to your choice of lengths, and be run in one of our many standard colours or a specific colour match.

Please browse the additional tooling details below, but bear in mind that we can cut new tooling should the ideal sizes not be listed.

Our range of plastic capping can be used to protect the ends and edges of furniture, boards, panels, glass and rigid sheets. It will generally have long legs that are tapered in to grip, so that no bond is essential. The most common types are C Section (also called U Section), which has legs of the same length, or J Section, which has legs of different lengths. Usually, the extent of the legs tapering can be controlled and altered during production, to account for varying board thicknesses or to provide greater or lesser grip. Less common are U Clips, frequently used for edging heavy thin products such as steel sheet.

Of course, all Plastic Channels can be used for other purposes than capping, and the tooling listed below can be regarded, for some purposes, as Single Channels or Tracks (typically with thicker legs that are made parallel) or as Clip On Sections. More Channel tooling is listed with these types of profile, which can be viewed via our Channels Page.

If required, Tubeway can often apply Double Sided Tape during production of plastic capping - automatic application can be much neater and cheaper than by hand on site. For more information on this, details on bulk self adhesive tape discounts, or any queries about the manufacture or use of Tubeway's Plastic Capping please contact our Sales team.
