These two types of Lintels above have become the most popular used, The Plain head type can be manufactured to be load-bearing on the guidance of a Structural Engineer. The Splayed head can be used as it is or with an integral Keystone. All Non-load bearing lintels must be supported by a steel lintel.

Plain Head

These lintels normally have a bearing of 150mm either side of the window and can be load bearing.


This lintel and the one below must sit on a supporting steel lintel.

Splayed + Keystone

As previously mentioned this one and the one above must be supported by a steel lintel. Any size over 1500mm long will be manufactured in three pieces with the joint down between the keystone and lintel.
