Reinforced Precast Concrete Lintels

The ‘dry-cast’ production technique used to manufacture reinforced lintels results in a high strength, low water/cement ratio mix. A variety of sections are available to suit different wall thicknesses. Unlike prestressed concrete lintels which ‘bow’, reinforced lintels are almost completely level on its top and underside.

Prestressed Concrete Lintels

Efficient design is achieved through the stressing of steel strand for reinforcement. This results in a lighter lintel with a high load bearing capacity. Particularly when used in composite action with the masonry wall above.

Padstones

Padstones are stronger than a masonry block and distribute loads efficiently through adjoining blockwork. This reduces the potential for cracks and structural failure.
