Lintels are used for supporting masonry walls, structures and openings. There is a vast range of steel lintels to complement any type of structure, a comprehensive range of concrete lintels, and a number of associated products.

Details of some of the most popular items are shown here, but any enquiries can be emailed to sales@pagets.co.uk.

  • Steel Lintels

    Pagets supply the Birtley Supergalv range of Steel Lintels. Every lintel is subjected to hot-dip galvanising after production guaranteeing complete and consistent protection. Every lintel is made from structural steel to EN10025, and has 65 microns of zinc coating, more than most other brands.

    When selecting a steel lintel there are several key factors to be aware of:

    1. What is the wall construction?
      • Cavity Wall-need to know width of outer leaf, cavity, and inner leaf
      • Timber Frame
      • External Solid Wall
      • Internal Load Bearing Wall
      • Internal Partition Wall
    2. What is the width of the structural opening or clearspan?
      • Will need to add 150mm minimum bearing to each end: for example a 1500mm wide window opening will require an 1800mm long lintel
    3. Calculate the load to be supported by the lintel.
      • Lintels are made to support a range of loads which are dependent on the roof load, the floor load, the wall construction, the use of the building, and other factors.
      • The Birtley technical team should be contacted on 0191 411 2564 or technical@birtleylintels.co.uk if you are unsure about loading.
    4. Select the correct lintel.

    Types of Steel Lintels

    CAVITY WALL LINTELS

    Cavity wall lintels are available to suit all cavity widths from 50mm upwards, ranging from standard duty to extra heavy duty loading. Most cavity lintels use a 100mm brickwork outer leaf and a 100-115mm blockwork inner leaf, but can also be used with other sizes and with stonework. To select a cavity wall lintel you will need to know the width of the outer leaf, the width of the cavity, the width of the inner leaf, and the required loading.

  • Concrete Lintels

    Prestressed concrete lintels are easy to install and suitable for a variety of applications: supporting masonry loads, timber floors, roofs, concrete floors, attic trusses, point loads, internal partitions, external cavity walls, garages etc.

    Standard lintels are kept in stock in 100x65mm and 100x140mm in various lengths from 600mm to 3m. They are made from wet cast concrete and may contain small air holes on the surface. They are normally used in plastered situations. Most standard lintels are fully reversible.

    Concrete Lintel 100mm x 65mm x various lengths from 600mm to 2700mm
    Concrete Lintel 100mm x 140mm x various lengths from 600mm to 3000mm


    When selecting a concrete lintel, you will need to add 150mm minimum bearing to each end:-for example a 1500mm wide window opening will require an 1800mm long lintel

    Other concrete lintels are available to order:

    Larger Section – 100x215mm, 140x65mm, 140x140mm, 140x215mm, 215x65mm

    Hi Strength-Larger profile lintels capable of supporting higher loads

    Fair Faced-A smoother finish, for use with fair faced block/brickwork, can be painted if required

    Fire Rated-offering 90-240 minutes fire protection depending on size of lintel

  • Concrete Padstones

    Concrete padstones are used as a sound base or pad for a lintel.

    They distribute the load onto the surrounding block or brick structure. It is much quicker to use precast concrete padstones rather than casting on site.

    A number of size options are available. Please email your enquiry to sales@pagets.co.uk

  • Rolled Steel Sections

    Rolled steel beams (or Universal Beams) and rolled steel channels (or Universal Channels) are available in a range of sizes for use in extreme loading conditions. They are normally supplied coated in a red oxide paint.

    When selecting a rolled steel lintel, you will need to add 200mm minimum bearing to each end:-for example a 3000mm wide opening will require a 3400mm long lintel.


    These products are made to order in whatever length you require.

  • Windposts

    Windposts are used in the design and construction of exterior masonry wall to protect them from potential damage from high winds. They are constructed from steel channel section and are supplied with all the necessary ties and fixings.

    They are designed on a job to job basis, please supply details and/or drawings to sales@pagets.co.uk and we will provide a technical drawing and specification for you to check and approve before manufacture.
