Advantages of Using Angle Iron
Angle iron is a highly recognizable and versatile type of structural steel. It gets used in thousands of different manufacturing and construction projects that range from ladders to go-cart frames. Its ubiquitous comes directly from its ability to provide users with following key advantages:
Affordable. Angle iron is a strong yet lightweight material that’s available for a great price. It compares in functionality with higher-priced metals, but its lower price allows users to enjoy its quality structural abilities while keeping costs low.
Minimal Maintenance. Once angle iron has been properly sealed or painted following installation, it requires very little maintenance.
High Strength Capabilities. Thanks to its 90-degree bend, angle iron enjoys high strength capabilities and withstands bending. Pound-for-pound, angle iron is much stronger than wood and other composites and is able to support much larger loads than flat steel.
Sustainable. Have angle iron you need to get rid of? This type of structural steel can be easily reused or recycled into new products through a melting, purifying, and re-casting process.
