Cavity Wall Lintels
Cavity Wall Lintels are suitable for most domestic, commercial developments and framed structures.
Cavity wall lintels are designed for use when two layers of bricks and blocks or ‘skins’ are used to construct a space or cavity between the structure. The in-built foam or polystyrene insulation helps to retain warmth through insulation and reduces condensation.
Our key suppliers are Birtley Steel Lintels and Keystone Lintels. All of our steel lintels are galvanized to protect against premature rust and corrosion and meet the Thermal Performance requirements of all UK Building Regulations.
The NHBC (National House Building Council) recommend a damp-proof course (DPC) or cavity tray should be installed over all openings in external cavity walls.
Buildbase has a large range of standard cavity lintels available in a variety of widths from 70mm to 165mm, with lengths from 900mm to 3900mm. For thicker steel and when a lintel with a longer span is required, Buildbase has a range of medium and heavy duty lintels for 90-105mm cavity widths stocked in lengths from 1200mm to 4800mm.
Branches will stock either Birtley Steel Lintels or Keystone Lintels.
