|Segmental Lintel||Flat Lintel||Circular Lintel|
The fully bonded structural brick arch system with hidden stainless steel lintels provide the most robust structural support while meeting all the requirements of Building Control.
Structural calculations are supplied with your arch lintels allowing full compliance with current Building Regulations. Prior to your order drawings for each arch style or span, are issued for the approval of your design engineers and advisors. The project only moves to production when all the detail is agreed and confirmed.
When all factors such as cost, ease of handling, simple installation, quality of finish, longevity and aesthetic ‘kerb appeal’ are considered, these arches, either flat, segmental or semicircular, are seen as a more attractive solution than many others options, including brick clad concrete or thin brick slip composite alternatives.
The most economical solution for flat & segmental arch lintels is a single skin option. The inner leaf or inner masonry (thick or solid wall construction) can be supported with a standard box lintel or precast concrete solution, whilst the outer brickwork is supported in the hidden steel lintel.
These lintels support both the inner and outer leaf on a modern cavity wall. Due to variations in design it is important to specify clearly the dimensions of the cavity wall section and the style of the frame under, behind or within the opening.
Our arches are designed to achieve the structural support required and to meet building regulations. Full drawings and design calculations for your structural arch lintel design are available for submission to Building Control.
This prestigious development in Lots Road, Chelsea features structural segmental arch lintels supplied with calculations to meet building control regulations.Read more...
The Library is an impressive timber and brick clad facade around a precast concrete frame. Bulmer Brick Cutting were asked to design and supply the massive 12m hidden steel lintels to the large glass entrance and windows.Read more...
The 1852 Grade 1 listed station has been completely refurbished and massively expanded whilst the station remained open for business. Bulmer Brick Cutting designed & supplied large span arch lintels with hidden structural support that could be man handled into position without crane access.Read more...
The Library is an impressive timber and brick clad facade around a precast concrete frame. Bulmer Brick Cutting were asked to design and supply the massive 12m hidden steel lintels to the large glass entrance and windows.
Completed in 2008, the design brief specified no sight of any apparent structural support, and no shelf support was to be allowed further up the elevations. The full load of the single skin outer leaf and planter supports was to be carried by the structural steel across openings up to 12 metres. In addition metre boxes and display features were designed with areas of brickwork apparently hanging in space with no support.
