Prestressed concrete lintels are one of the most reliable, durable and widely used in the construction industry, they boast several benefits including a lower construction cost, fewer joints and a high strength to section ratio. These lintels also have excellent thermal properties and are less susceptible to moisture and chemical corrosion.
The lintel should be installed with a minimum end bearing of 150mm and unlike steel lintels, a concrete lintel is often used in visible areas and painted if required.
For more information on our lintels please check our how to guide. However, before ordering a lintel, it is essential that you speak with the project’s structural engineer to advise on the correct lintel for the job.
