Galvanized Angle Iron

Our galvanized angle iron with embeds is made of mild steel — A36 hot-rolled galvanized angle iron with Nelson studs. They are used to add strength to concrete trenches. The lip of the angle iron serves as a railing for the placement of the steel grates. This angle iron lip provides a more durable area for the placement of the grates, whereas a lip made of concrete alone may result in the concrete crumbling and chipping.

Angle Iron Applications

Galvanized angle iron is available in many sizes and pre-cut lengths, offering a versatile solution for drainage systems of different sizes. After being welded into place, angle iron provides stability and support and is an indispensable component for covering trenches and ensuring the safety of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Their structural properties — coupled with the benefits of the zinc-rich galvanizing process — make these trench grates a reliable and long-lasting option for use in diverse projects. Our fair pricing and stock availability make our galvanized angle iron highly accessible, making them a convenient choice for small contractors and large construction companies alike seeking efficient and durable solutions for trench covering applications.

The Benefits of Galvanized Steel


Galvanized steel angle irons are known for their trusted durability. The galvanization process involves the steel being hot-dipped into molten zinc, which creates a durable hard surface coating that protects the material from external elements.

This extra layer of protection is particularly beneficial in environments where they are commonly exposed to harsh weather conditions or high moisture levels. As such, galvanized steel angle irons provide a reliable and robust trench grate solution that can be trusted in even extreme conditions.


One key advantage of galvanized steel angle irons lies in their corrosion-resistant properties. The zinc coating applied through the galvanizing process acts as a barrier against corrosion, which helps the underlying steel achieve rust-free protection. This corrosion resistance is especially beneficial in outdoor or marine environments where exposure to moisture and salt can accelerate the degradation of untreated steel.


Galvanized steel angle irons are known for lasting many years thanks to their protective coatings. This longevity translates to extended service life and reduces the need for frequent replacements or repairs. This characteristic is particularly advantageous in applications where access for maintenance is challenging or costly. 

Galvanized angle irons — with their ability to resist rust and corrosion — offer a reliable and long-lasting solution for structures in various industries. As such, their sustained performance over time contributes to cost savings.

Less Maintenance

Galvanized steel angle irons require less maintenance compared to their untreated counterparts. The zinc-rich galvanizing process creates a protective layer that helps maintain protection without the need for frequent interventions. This reduced maintenance is particularly beneficial when the angle irons are installed in hard-to-reach or hazardous environments. 

With proper installation, galvanized steel angles can provide rust-free protection for an extended period — ensuring stability and structural integrity with minimal upkeep. The lower maintenance needs of galvanized angle irons contribute to their cost-effectiveness and make them a preferred choice in various construction and industrial settings.
