Identifying Angle Beams

How to Identify the Different Angles of the Angled Beams

There are four different types of beams that have a bend at an angle: 30o Angle Beams, 45o Angle Beams, 60o Angle Beams, and Right Angle (90o) Beams. There are also three types of Right Angle Beams: 3x5, 2x3, and Offset. The best way to tell which angles are which is to stack the beams on top of each other. Then you can compare how they look. You can also use a protractor to measure the angle of the beam.
