Brick Arches

The customers' requirements for forming arches vary considerably and therefore so do our solutions. The traditional brick arch built on site is a time consuming and difficult task taken on only by experienced tradesman. We ensure that the finished design and quality of a building isn't compromised by ensuring in addition to the option of providing the cutting service to create arches, we also give a wide range of prefabricated products that ensures the client receives a quality controlled product.

Brick arches can be preformed onto lightweight non structural backing or alternatively formed as part of the structural element of the building. This can be done using a number of methods including prefabrication onto concrete lintels with bricks returned onto the soffit by bonding using epoxy resins specifically designed for this application, or by Pre-casting the bricks into the concrete with a positive key between the two materials. We also manufacture other solutions including steel backed structural lintels, a super-lite solution and even a retro-fit option, so please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
