Steel Angle

Sino East Steel, a large and quality steel manufacturer in China, provide sufficient stock of steel products such as structural steel, steel pipes, steel or iron wires, steel coils and steel sheets, etc. Certainly the steel angle, as one kind of structural steel, is also hot sale to worldwide with gathering numerous loyalty oversea customers. Actually steel angle bar, is also called Angle steel, commonly known as angle iron and is a specific steel products with demanded length, with two sides perpendicular to each other (namely L shape). There are equilateral (equal-sided) angle steel and unequal steel angle moreover both of them are 90 degree angle. Steel angles could cover for variety of purposes in numerous industries.

Specification of Steel Angle

  • Steel angle bar, the company produced, may match to international standards such as ASTM, JIS and so on.
  • For related specification of Steel angle bar with ASTM A36ASME S1-36, please refer as below, meanwhile its length for 20 or 40 feet.

L 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/8

L 1 x 5/8 x 1/8

L 3/4 x 3/4 x 1/8

L 5/8 x 5/8 x 1/8

L 7/8 x 7/8 x 1/8

  • The unequal angle steel is generally rolled by hot rolling mill. The section height is calculated by the long side width of unequal angle steel. The general specification of unequal angle steel as

L50*32 – L200*125, Thickness 4 – 18mm

Uses of Steel Angle

According to angle bar definition or common understanding, it is well known as an “angle Iron” or “L-bracket”, which is the metal bracket in the form of a right angle. Furthermore it is made of galvanized steel or mild steel without coating (as saved the cost of sourcing and applied for the projects without consideration of security), and often used in masonry or used for different materials’ surfaces through drilling or even welding.

Angle steel can be used to form various force members according to the different needs of the structure, and it can also be used as a connection between each force member. At the same time it is widely used in various building structures and engineering structures such as steel beams, bridges, transmission towers, lifting and transportation machinery, ships, industrial furnaces, reaction towers, container racks, cable trench brackets, power piping, bus bracket installation, warehouse shelves, etc.

Advantages of Angle Steel

For steel angle bar there are so many advantages of uses because of its popular uses for related projects with low cost. Below is the list of advantages of angle steels.

  • Sustainable uses

The used angle iron can be easily remelted, purified and cast into new steel products, eliminating waste and reducing the exploitation of new materials. Angle iron is very easy to reuse or even recycle into new steel products, making it environmentally friendly and sustainable.

  • Multiple sizes

Angle steel has a variety of width, thickness, depth and even length to choose from, so that you can find the most suitable sizes with excellent load-bearing and strength for your projects.

  • Easy maintenance

Angle iron and the completion of the project after uses of steel angles could be with less maintenance, as long as the metal works are properly done with related sealed or painted.
