Outboard Seat Mounting Rail - Whats it called...and where can I get more?

Like the title says, I am looking for some more of this stuff. What I have is extruded aluminum and the slot is just the right size to accept a standard 1/2" carriage bolt. (round head with a square shoulder to keep it from turning)

I want to add another rail up higher on the walls that I can use in addition to the existing rail for bolting in cabinetry, furniture, etc. I want to make everything in the bus unboltable and removable.

Hey, I think I mighta just invented a new word here...

So Google is my BFF. It's called T-Track, and its widely available in lots of sizes from lots of sources.

Yeah, I may call them as well. They were very helpful when I called looking for wiring diagrams and a drawing of the roof structure. Took my VIN and sent me info on my exact vehicle.
