Brick Lintels

When an Architect wishes to have an exposed brick soffit either above doorways or windows, the brick needs to be either supported using masonry support system or be pre-formed onto a lintel. Our experience shows a preformed solution offers our customers a far easier and more cost effective solution.

The pre-cast brick faced concrete solution has been extremely popular with our customers in overcoming the problem of supporting masonry with exposed soffits, but we have also developed other lightweight solutions with the use of steel rather than concrete for applications where weight is an issue and in combination with our knowledge and expertise working with GRP and epoxy resins, our Fab-Steel Brick-Lite lintel has been well received for both structural elements and also for continuous runs of exposed soffits in 'hung' applications where the designer wishes to create the appearance of unsupported floating brickwork fixed to the under side of a shelf angle
