This is a structural material with cross section of 90 degree angle. The dimension is determined by the length and the thickness of the two sides. If the lengths of the two sides are equal, it is equal angle, otherwise it is unequal. It is used in all construction activity. Sizes available are as follows:
Equal Angles: 20 * 3 upto 200 * 20 mm
Unqual Angles: 45 * 30 * 5 upto 150 * 115 * 12 mm
Also available M.S.'T' Angles in different sizes.
