Steel Angle

Steel angle (also known as angle iron), is one of the most commonly used steel structural shapes due to its 90° L-shape and useful mechanical properties. Angle iron can be manufactured in different steel and metal alloys, in both smaller bar sizes and larger L-shape sizes

Steel Angle Shape, Thickness, and Strength Considerations

  • Angle iron thickness is dependent upon your project requirements
    • Weight, force, and torsion should be considered when determining angle iron thickness
  • Structural steel angle is strongest above the vertical section of the structural shape.
    • The strength of the angle iron comes from the length of the L-shape

Angle iron is a versatile structural steel that can be used for a wide variety of industrial and commercial uses.
