Anyone know where I can get the square U-channel that's used around the edges of sheet rock panels used to cover access holes? This would be for 3/8" sheet rock.

I don't think that either big orange or big blue carry anything. You might check with Orange Aluminum as they have an extremely wide variety of extruded aluminum...and their prices are pretty danged good as well.

Checking their website...under Products > Channels...on the left side of that page is a checkbox to choose the fit size, and then the leg size. An 8ft piece that fits 3/8" with 3/4" legs was less than 7 bucks. Danged cheap when compared to big box.
Opportunity has a shelf life.

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind. Looks isn't a big concern as this is for the laundry room (behind stuff). Just want to keep the sheet rock edges clean.
