Magnetic Base | Channel
channel magnets are called that because they usually fit in the small recession or channel on the edge of a cabinet door. These handy cabinet magnets replace the old fashioned door latches of the past.
Neodymium cabinet magnets are of course very strong and should be used for cabinets in motorhomes, boats and recreational vehicles when the doors must stay latched in a moving vehicle.
The ceramic cabinet magnets are typically used in the home where there is no movement and the items behind the doors weigh less.
These Cabinet Magnets come with countersunk holes so that the screws used to anchor the channel magnets to the wood, plastic or metal lay flat and even with the surface of the cabinet magnet.
CMS Magnetics & Magnets For Sale carry both round countersunk magnets and rectangular countersunk magnets at Magnet4sale.com in the case something you are using them for requires a different size or shape.
Rectangular Magnetic Bases or channel magnets are also known as channel magnets or magnetic channels. They are made of permanent magnets assembled inside steel channels. Most of the rectangular magnetic bases use either neodymium rare earth magnets or ceramic magnets but AlNiCo and SmCo magnets are rarely used. The benefits of the channel magnets are strength and durability. The holding strength of the magnetic channels is much more powerful than the magnets built in the channels since the magnetic circuit design. And the steel channels protect the magnets from direct hit so to have a much longer service life.
