Help with product name.

What is the name of this channel that is in the picture that is being used to build the soffit? I'd like to use it to build mine. I couldn't find anything like it at Lowe's/HD. Thanks!!

1 5/8 steel track, what you see I've found at Home depot in the steel studs section. Not my project but looks similar.

Thanks Big. I have a couple other HD's around, I'll have to check them out. This method looks great for building soffits.

print this out and take with you, If HD doesn't stock it in your location look for a local building supply company that specializes in drywall, they will have metal framing supplies and there is a high probability they will stock this item

Thanks again Big. Yup, no luck at any of my HD/Lowes. only 3-5/8". I'll make some calls or see if they can order it.
