Is L 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 1/4" available?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear All:

I need some input from you, please.  A designer with whom I am working
together on a project specified  L 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 1/4" as the bearing seats
for 1 1/4" grating.  I told her that such a small size angle may be difficult
to get, if it exists, (because the smallest size listed in my AISC Handbook
(LRFD, 2nd edition) is L2x2x1/8), but she showed me her Green Book (ASD, 9th
edition) in which the smallest size listed is L1x1x1/8".  Here is my
question:  Can we still get L 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 1/4" easily?  If so, why it is
not listed in the LRFD version of the Handbook?
