Our technical and scheduling department is there to provide full technical expertise and advise on our lintels. The team work using the most up to date BS standards for methods of assessing loads to make sure that our lintels specified are structurally capable and will satisfy building control. If required calculations can be provided for lintels specified to justify their suitability.
We can quote from a full set of architects drawings, to ensure all the information present will be analysed to determine any specific design criteria required for the lintels (e.g. whether they need to be steel / concrete, or a combination of both). All opening sizes are checked and confirmed within the lintel schedule with the correct length of lintel required specified.
Schedules provided are presented in a way which is easy for the client to understand which lintels are required where, and scheduled so that if it is a large project (e.g. block of flats) the lintels can be called off when required (e.g. floor levels).
In a nutshell
Many merchants and developers have used our scheduling and technical services when specifying our lintels:

How is it used?
Our technical expertise was required for some special arch lintels specified by a long standing client for their own new offices. We manufactured six semi-circular arch lintels as well as a number of RS lintels for the outer envelope of the building based in Leicester.
We have also put several schedules together for a development in the south west using detailed architects drawings and working with a number of structural engineers. A number of properties required different types of steel lintels, and our technical team put a detailed schedule together to accommodate the project plan.
