The steel C Channel is often generically referred to as strut and can be thought of as a giant erector set.
Working with steel strut requires one specialized tool— a chop saw with a diamond metal cutting blade.

Cutting strut does makes two things:
Lots of noise
Sharp metal shavings which can give you nasty splinters

Please be sure to wear proper protection— eyes and ears need to be protected. Since most folks will need to rent such a tool, it also really helps to plan ahead and try to pre-cut the strut to usable sizes.
