A vast array of strong aluminium angles, including equal and unequal variations, available in a variety of sizes for different jobs.
SPECIALIST ALUMINIUM SUPPLIER
At MG Metals, we are a multi-metal stockholder with a large supply of aluminium available to purchase; this includes a vast range of aluminium angles. Our inventory consists of over 50 aluminium angle sizes, suitable for a range of different jobs and sectors.
Equal angles are available in profile lengths from 3/8” up to 6”, as well as 20 – 50mm, with a variety of thicknesses. Unequal angles are also available in a range of size combinations.
We can cut aluminium angles bespoke to size, providing a range of custom processing services under one roof. All our stocked aluminium can be cut, drilled, finished and delivered in a short space of time, keeping lead times to a minimum.
WHAT IS AN ALUMINIUM ANGLE?
An aluminium angle is a piece of extruded aluminium that has the shape of an “L”. It is commonly used in construction and fabrication projects as a structural element to provide support and stability.
The two sides of the angle are usually at a 90-degree angle to each other, and the thickness of the material can vary depending on the intended application.
Aluminium angles can be cut to size, drilled, and welded or bolted together to create complex structures. They are lightweight, durable, and resistant to corrosion, which makes them ideal for a range of outdoor and structural applications.
TYPES OF ALUMINIUM ANGLE
Aluminium angles are available in “equal” and “unequal” variations; at MG Metals we stock a vast variety of each.

ALUMINIUM ANGLES FAQs
In an equal aluminium angle, both legs of the angle have the same length. On the other hand, in an unequal aluminium angle, the length of the two legs is different. The longer leg in an unequal angle is usually used as the load-bearing side, while the shorter leg is used for attachment or fixing.
Aluminium is less dense than steel, which means that it is lighter in weight. Although it is not as strong as steel, aluminium is still a strong and durable material that can be used in a wide range of applications where weight is a concern. For example: aerospace, automotive, and marine industries.
