Closed Eave Steel Lintels

Stressline’s closed eave steel lintels are designed for one purpose. They are designed specifically where there is an opening in a cavity wall, but no load from one leaf. The only ‘real-life’ application is closed eaves. If you look at the load span tables you will notice that for eaves applications you would apply a ratio of 19:1.

Our eaves lintels are available for cavity sizes of 50mm, 90mm and 130mm as standard. Each cavity size lintel has HD, XHD (extra heavy duty) and WIL (wide inner leaf) variants, please see our steel lintel load tables for more information.

Stressline eaves lintels are available at various lengths starting at 600mm, typically going up to 3000mm for most variants. For more information on closed eave steel lintel sizes and prices please download the brochure section below. For the full brochure you can download it from our downloads page.
