About Concrete Lintel
A lintel is horizontal structural support that spans a gap in a wall or connects two vertical supports. It is typically utilised above windows and doors, which are both vulnerable places in the framework of a building. Lintels are typically used to support weight, although they can also be beautiful.
Lintels are most commonly made of concrete, wood and steel.
Precast concrete lintels are cost-effective and provide dependable support for masonry over door and window openings. They may take a wide variety of surface finishes.
Lintels must be supported at both ends, and the length of a lintel for a brick wall is commonly calculated by measuring the complete width of the structural opening and adding 150 mm for end-bearings at both ends. If lintels or end-bearings are not properly defined, they might crack embellishments or the structure itself, resulting in structural failure and collapse.
Lintels are also vital because they help to prevent heat loss from a structure as well as wet and humidity. Lintels must be properly designed and built to eliminate thermal bridging (a direct connection between the inside and outside through elements that are more thermally conductive than the rest of the building envelope).
