Size of c-channel needed

I am building a house with a vaulted ceiling. Weyerhaeuser gave me the lvl specs which will be holding 8000 lbs at one end. The problem is that the beam is directly over a door, so I am using two posts to straddle the door. I need to know the size of the c-channel to span the door. The c-channel span will be 42 inches. Thanks
