More Details About Each Structural Angle Product

  • A36 Structural and Bar Angles

    This product grade is the most widely used. Due to great weldability, machinability, formability, and affordability, A36 works well for most construction and industrial applications. It has a max carbon content of 2.6% and can be galvanized to increase corrosion resistance.

  • A529-50 Structural and Bar Angles

    This steel grade offers greater strength to weight ratio than A36 steel, and is almost exclusively used for structural applications. It has a minimum yield point of 50 ksi. The addition of copper is another main difference between A36 grade structural steel angle and A529. It’s extra .2% of copper content better protects it from corrosion.

  • A572-50 Bar Angles

    This is a high strength low alloy (HSLA) structural steel product. It benefits from the addition of columbium-vanadium resulting in increased tensile strength. This grade is widely seen in the transportation industry.

General Info About Structural Angles

A structural angle is a widely used structural steel product. It can be used for building communication towers, bridges, coffee tables, and more. All angles are formed by two legs that are attached to a vertical web,  forming an L-shaped cross section. Legs can be of equal or unequal lengths and angles are usually 90 degrees, but can be sized to customer specification to satisfy a range of project requirements.

Angles are made from hot rolled steel and are available as steel angles and bar angles. Steel angles will have legs greater than 3″, and bar angles are smaller. Both are commonly used in structural and general fabrication applications across a wide range of industries, including architectural and construction. However, bar angles are specifically common in masonry and are often attached to different surfaces and held together either by welding or drilling.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are typical steel angle sizes?

    ANSWER:

    Bar angles are often sized 1/2″ x 1/2″ x 1/8″ up to 2-1/2″. The steel angles are larger, and are commonly stocked from 3″ x 2″ x 3/16″ and up.

  • What are common steel angle dimensions?

    ANSWER:

    Steel angle dimensions are determined by the width, length, and thickness. Steel angles have legs that are greater than 3 inches and bar angles will be smaller. They can be cut to any length.

  • What are typical steel angles properties?

    ANSWER:

    Typical steel angles properties include a minimum yield strength of 50 ksi, good machinability, formability, and weldability.
