An angle is an L-shaped steel merchant made from hot rolling carbon steel. Steel angles are made up of two perpendicular “legs” that have a variety of specifications to fit any situation. Its profile and shape add strength and rigidity to a structure, making it one of the most commonly used structural shapes. While the most conventional types of steel angles are usually 90° and have legs of equal length, there are variations with legs of different lengths (unequal angles) and angles other than 90°.
Steel Angles FAQs
While the most common angles usually have right angles and equal-length legs, unequal angles have legs of different lengths and some variations use wider or narrower angles than 90°.
Steel angles are frequently used for framing, brackets, and other forms of reinforcement. Because of their adaptability and relatively small size, they can be used in a variety of industries, from furniture to infrastructure.
