Where do you buy aluminum H channel to connect floorboards

I want new floors so I'm considering making them out of a lighter material .

But where do you buy the H channel ?

This is an interesting link to marine grade aluminium classes https://continentalsteel.com/blog/ma...rade-aluminum/

I suppose next stage is to track down H profile suppliers, for the specification you want that can ship to you.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

The thing with the Zodiac H channels is they have teeth that lock in a slot

I called a few dealers and they have NO CLUE

The Zodiac H channels will be mass produced to a particular profile and not available as a spare part, unless you're getting it complete with plywood section. If the ply and H channel are a snug fit already, I'd be looking at a epoxy glue or even countersunk stainless self tapper cross head screws for belt and braces.
