Concrete Lintels

Stressline concrete lintels are synonymous with UK structural building products. We have been making them for over 50 years and continue to produce them today, right here in our Leicestershire-based factory.

All of our concrete lintels are pre-stressed meaning they have heightened strength by way of steel wires running through the middle of the lintel. In addition to lintels we also manufacture padstones, including the new L-shaped padstone.
