Angle Tees are L-shaped molding that supports and finishes the ceiling around its perimeter. They are the most basic type of roll-formed steel. They are formed by bending a single angle in a piece of steel. The most common type of Angles are formed and finished at 90 degrees. The legs of the “L” can be of equal or unequal length.
They are used for various purposes in a number of industries. Framing is one of the most common uses for it, but are also used for brackets, trim, reinforcements etc. The larger the Angle, the more Load and stress it can bear.
As it the Angle frames the whole ceiling system, it is imperative that the amount of load and deflection be ascertained in order for it to remain stable. Furthermore, the right system needs to be in place for it to withstand said stress and avoid damage. Minimum lateral load for interior partitions is 240 Pa (5 psf); for exterior walls 720 Pa (15 psf) to 2160 Pa (45 psf) or greater depending on structural height and topography.
In terms of deflection for drywall systems it is advised to limit deflection to L/240 (L = length of the span) and to never exceed L/120. The preferred limit for veneer assemblies is L/360 and should not exceed L/240.
Wall Angles along with all Components of the system are pre-painted galvanized metal, which is corrosion free and aesthetically appealing. The Angles designed with ease of assembly and convenience in mind due to which all part of the system interlock with the frame easily.
