Short Outer Leaf Steel Lintels

Short outer leaf steel lintels (or SOLs) are designed with an outer leaf of 75mm. The main application for this type of lintel is to support reconstructed stone rather than standard brickwork. It is also a useful lintel to use when you need to support cant bricks.

The short outer leaf lintel is available in our standard cavity sizes – 50mm through to 150mm. Like most of our steel lintel product range, SOLs are available in HD, XHD (extra heavy duty) and CXHD (composite extra heavy duty) variants. Please see our steel lintel load tables for more information.

Our short outer leaf lintels are available at various lengths starting at 600mm. For more information on standard steel lintel sizes and prices please download the brochure section below. For the full brochure you can download it from our downloads page.

Stressline standard steel lintel


Stressline short outer leaf steel lintels are designed to support:

  • Masonry loads
  • Masonry loads and uniformly distributed timber floor loads
  • Uniformly distributed roof loads (HD lintel usually required)

The XHD (extra heavy duty) and CXHD (composite extra heavy duty) variants are designed to support concrete floor loads, attic truss loads and point loads.


Our short outer leaf lintels are easy to install and designed to support either reconstituted stone or cant bricks because of the 75mm outer leaf. The galvanised steel finish ensures a robust product.

Like other steel lintel products, our short outer leaf lintel offers excellent thermal efficiency.

Short outer leaf lintels also have a built-in plaster key or a perforated base plate to inner flange.
