The SB/K standard load bearing lintel has been constructed from high quality pre-galvanised mild steel which is 3.0mm thick.
Available in 150mm increments starting at 750mm up to 2700mm, allowing for load bearing over a variety of opening sizes for applications such as for doorways or windows.
Please note: The SB/K lintels require an additional 150mm end bearing at each end of the lintel to allow for correct installation. For example: if the size of the opening is 1500mm then the lintel will require an additional 300mm added to the lintels total length to accommodate the end bearings.
In order for this lintel to achieve the figures that are specified in the table below, the lintel will need to be installed correctly. These lintels may also be propped in order to speed up the building process.
The figures also take into account the different loading types which are common in traditional cavity wall construction. These lintels have been tested as a composite unit with surrounding masonry and have been built in accordance with BS EN 1996-2:2006. These figures have been acquired through testing in accordance with the requirements of standards BS 5977 Part 2: 1983 and BS EN 845-2:2003
