Steel, aluminum, and stainless angles are used for a variety of purposes:
Reinforcement - The larger the metal angle, the more stress and weight it can bear. When angles are bolted or welded to the corner of anything being constructed, this increases its ability to bear stress and enhances its longevity.
Support - A common use of metal angles is as a bracket support for shelving, usually attached to the wall at a perpendicular angle. Angle irons are useful in bracing joints and in holding different components in place.
Framework - Metal angles are a basic component of nearly every construction project. From buildings to factory machinery to beds, steel angles are used to provide a strong framework.
Decorative - Steel angles are not always hidden in construction. They are sometimes used decoratively as trim on the edges of furniture and in building interiors including doorways, counter tops and floors.
The 6061 Aluminum Angle is the most commonly used aluminum for structural applications. It has great strength and is the angle of choice when light weight and corrosion resistance matter. This angle is easy to weld, cut, and drill. Aluminum Angle 6061 is resistant to stress cracking and non-magnetic.

The 6063 Aluminum angle with its sharp angle corners inside and out is often used where strength is less important than surface finish. It is routinely used for trim applications. Its light weight and corrosion resistance make it the ideal product when this is of concern.

The 304 Stainless Steel angle with its radius corners is ideal for structural applications that require greater strength and high corrosion resistance. Its dull, durable, somewhat grainy mill finish allows it to do well with the elements of weather, acidic, fresh and salt water, and chemical exposure.

Galvanized Steel Angle is an A36 hot rolled mild steel angle that has been hot dipped in a zinc rich galvanizing process. Galvanizing can be an economical price solution when corrosion resistance is needed instead of purchasing stainless steel angles.
