Concrete Lintels

Stressline prestressed concrete lintels are synonymous with UK structural building products. They are cost effective and high performing, and CE marked meaning they are subject to the most stringent tests under the Constructions Product Regulation (CPR). We have been making concrete lintels over 50 years and continue to produce them today, right here in our Leicestershire-based factory.

All of our concrete lintels are prestressed meaning they have heightened strength by way of steel wires, which have been set to high tension running through the middle of the lintel. We manufacture three basic types of concrete lintels – the standard prestressed lintel, fair faced lintel and high strength lintel.

In addition to lintels, we also manufacture padstones, including the new L-shaped padstone.
