Mild Steel Angles

Buy Mild Steel Angles / Angle Irons / RSA’s

At SPD we offer a wide range of mild steel angles. This product is also known as angle irons, mild steel angles, rolled steel angle or RSA.

They are measured in width (mm) x height (mm) x thickness (mm). They make up part of our merchant bar range.

Mild steel angles are most usually employed for a range of constructional uses including being used for making shelves, frames, brackets, trim, racks, most general DIY applications and general engineering applications, vehicle building and maintenance.

Our wide range of steel angles for sale are S275JR grade, which adheres to BS EN 10025-2:2019 and is known for its good machinability and weldability. They can be easily drilled, cut and welded if needed, making them ideal for general fabrication.

Mild Steel Angle Types

There are two types of angles - Equal angle and Unequal angle, depending on whether their width and height differ.

With the Equal angle the width and height are the same. The most used mild steel angle is one which forms a 90-degree angle and has sides of equal length and width.

If you require sizes not listed on the site, please speak to our Live Chat team, or make use of our contact us forms. We have larger sizes available, but only list the most popular sizes on our website.

Cutting Angle Irons to Size

Our mild steel angles / angle irons come in standard 6m lengths. If you require them cutting down to size, please speak to our Live Chat team, or make use of our contact us forms. We can cut your steel angles to any size you want for your project.

Delivery of Your Steel Angles

Most of our orders are delivered via our UK wide network of depots on flat bed lorries.  They can also be collected free from your nearest depot.

Please note that if your order is over 100Kg in weight, you will need either a mechanical lift or forklift to offload them. Most orders under this weight requirement can be offloaded by hand. Our delivery drivers are not allowed to help with offloading, so you will need to ensure you have sufficient manpower available.

For large steel orders, or for customers that don’t have the facility to offload themselves, we can provide a quote for a Hiab lorry that will have a mechanical lift to aid in offloading.

If you are unsure, please get in touch and we can go through your options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Are mild steel angles known by other names?
Yes, mild steel angles are known by many other names: mild steel L-section, mild steel angle iron, mild steel structural angles, galvanized mild steel angle, hot-rolled mild steel angle, cold-rolled mild steel angle, steel angle, steel L-section, steel structure angle, galvanized steel angle, hot-rolled steel angle and cold-rolled steel angle.
How do I choose the right size of mild steel angle for my project?
Selecting the appropriate size of a mild steel angle is crucial for ensuring the structural integrity and performance of your project. Several factors should be considered when making this decision: The size of the angle should be able to withstand the anticipated loads, such as the weight of the structure or the forces acting upon it. The angle should fit the dimensions of the project, ensuring proper alignment and clearance. The angle should complement the overall design and aesthetics of the project. If the project will be exposed to harsh weather conditions, a thicker or galvanized angle may be necessary for corrosion protection.
How do I connect mild steel angles together?
Several methods can be employed for connecting mild steel angles together to form secure and durable connections: Welding: Welding is the most common method for joining mild steel angles, providing a strong and permanent bond. Bolting: Bolting involves using bolts, nuts, and washers to secure the angles together. It offers flexibility for disassembly and repair. Rivets: Riveting involves using rivets to fasten the angles, creating a strong and load-bearing connection.
What are mild steel angles?
Mild steel angles are a versatile and widely used structural material composed of low-carbon steel formed into an L-shape. They are known for their durability, strength, and ease of fabrication, making them ideal for a wide range of applications, including construction, manufacturing, and repair. Mild steel angles are also recyclable, contributing to their environmental friendliness.
What are the different types of mild steel angles?
Mild steel angles are primarily categorised into two main types: equal angles and unequal angles. Equal angles feature two legs of equal dimensions, providing uniform strength and rigidity. Unequal angles have legs of varying sizes, often with a longer leg for support and a shorter leg for weight reduction. This makes unequal angles suitable for applications where specific dimensions and weight requirements are important.
