What is 'angle iron' 🧑‍🔧

After a few colleagues asked for my assistance on the subject, I decided to write about "What is 'angle iron'". If you're still unsure, stick with me…

A quick answer is…

An L-shaped cleat or brace. Also: A length of steel having a cross section resembling the letter L.

Angle iron is basically manufactured by hot-rolled carbon steel or high strength low alloy steel.

It has L-cross shaped section with two legs - equal or unequal and the angle would be 90 degree.

Structural steel angles have lots of dimensions to comply with your uses.

Simply, A-iron is hard to bend, but easy to twist.

Angle iron works extremely well when used conjunctively.

By welding pieces together at 90 degree angles and bracing the angles of the welds with short pieces at 45 degree angles, A-iron’s susceptibility to twisting is greatly reduced.

Let’s start by reviewing a few questions people ask:
