Concrete lintels are a great solution to providing economical and robust masonry support for load bearing over doors and windows.
Buildbase can supply pre-stressed concrete lintels for new or replacement windows and doors. With quality and trusted products from Naylor and Supreme concrete, we stock a wide range of surface finishes in a variety of dimensions and loadings.
Prestressed concrete lintels are one of the most reliable, durable and widely used in the construction industry, boasting a number of benefits including lower construction cost, fewer joints and a high strength to section ratio.
Supreme prestressed concrete lintels have been awarded a BSI Kitemark, are manufactured with a texture finished and feature Supreme’s superior concrete technology to match the lintel to a multitude of frames.
Prestressed lintels have high-tension steel wires running through the middle. The lintels 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.
Our lintels are available from 600mm wide all the way up to 2700mm. Our Branches carry standard sizes in stock and can order specialist or less common sizes with short delivery times.
