Angle refers to a type of metal profile that has an L-shaped cross-section, resembling the letter “L.” It is commonly known as an “angle iron” or simply an “angle.” The two legs of the angle are typically at a right angle to each other, forming a 90-degree angle.


Types of Angles

Equal Angle: Both legs of the angle have the same length, resulting in a 90-degree angle.

Unequal Angle: One leg is longer than the other, creating an unequal angle.


Angle metal can be made from various materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and other alloys. The material choice depends on factors such as strength requirements, corrosion resistance, and the specific application.


The dimensions of angle metal are specified by the length of each leg and the thickness of the metal. Common leg lengths range from a fraction of an inch to several inches, and the dimensions are typically specified in inches or millimeters.


Construction: Angle metal is widely used in construction for structural framing, supports, and bracing.

Manufacturing: It is utilized in the manufacturing of various products, providing strength and stability in machinery and equipment.

Infrastructure: Used in infrastructure projects for creating frameworks, bridges, and other structural elements.

Strength and Versatility: Angle metal is valued for its strength and versatility. The L-shaped profile provides stability and support in various applications.

Welding and Fabrication: Angle metal is easily weldable, allowing for customization and fabrication to suit specific project requirements.

Finishes: Similar to other metal profiles, angle metal can have different finishes based on the material and application. Finishes may include plain (uncoated), galvanized, or coated for enhanced corrosion resistance.
