Flat washers reduce the chance that your connection between bolt and channel nut loosesns gradually loosen over time.  We offer flat washers in the standard sizes used for Unistrut applications and you can order washers online from our website for added convenience.  We've copied a section of the flat washer section from the Engineering Catalog for handy reference.
