STEEL AIN’T SMALL
Look for brand and TIS certificate when buying angles and channels.
The steel and construction industries categorize angles and channels into structural steel ranging from small to large sizes. However, no matter what the size, it is not a small issue to overlook the TIS standard.
Select from Appearance and Brand
Angles and Channels are hot-rolled structural steel produced to Thai Industrial Standard TIS 1227-2558 (2015). They can effectively support all forces and are lighter than reinforced concrete, suitable for structures such as factory roofs, warehouses, warehouse columns, transmission line towers, factories, advertisement boards, house roof frames, and common internal and external building structure.
Angles are hot-rolled structural steel in the shape of an “L” whose identical sides make a 90 degrees angle to each other and have weight tolerance at not more than +/- 3% of the standard specification. Angles have smooth surface and come in a variety of sizes ranging from one inch up to six inches and have thickness ranging from 3 mm. to 15 mm. for various uses.
Channels are hot-rolled structural steel in the shape of the letter “U”. Each side of the U has the same thickness and makes a 90 degrees angle to each other and have smooth surface.
Not only appearance, brands of manufacturers must also be taken into consideration since brands are guarantees of TIS.
