Meatworks or freezerworks should work. I have never heard one actually called a slaughterhouse, must be an American thing.

Just because you don't know it or haven't heard it does not automatically make it an American thing. Sheesh!

I only know "abattoir" because there is an episode of the Simpsons where Homer tries to buy tapes to encourage weight loss and they send him vocabulary builder tapes instead. "Abattoir" is the first word on the tapes..."The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir." I am realizing that like 60% of my knowledge of higher learning and culture comes from Simpsons references.

They're sometimes called that in New Zealand and Australia. Also known as meat processing plants, used to be called freezing works in NZ due to how meat used to be frozen before export. But slaughterhouse and abattoir are also used here. I'm not sure how global the term meatworks is used but since NZ and Oz are big in the meat industry globally it should be accepted.

A "straight angle" also works, too. Probably should re-word the question so that right angle is the only possibility. Angle opposite the hypotenuse?
