Innovation
Founded in 1958, IG Lintels is a division
of Europe’s largest manufacturer of
steel lintels and masonry support
systems. IG Lintels design, manufacture
and supply high quality steel lintels
throughout Europe.
IG invented the original open back
lintel in 1967, which quickly became
the industry standard. Our lintels are
engineered to be the most structurally

and thermally efficient lintels available.
Continual development ensures they
are widely specified for use throughout
Europe on commercial, industrial,
residential and institutional projects.
In 2011 IG introduced Hi-Therm, a
unique product designed to exceed
the thermal requirements of future
building regulations.

Through continual innovation the IG range now
provides lintel solutions for every structural
requirement, compliant with the latest regulations.

8 The external lintel flange must project beyond the window/door frame and it is recommended that a flexible sealing compound is used between the underside of the lintel flange and the frame. ENSURE LINTEL IS LEVEL ALONG ITS WIDTH Ensure lintel is level across its width. care should be taken to avoid shock loading and floor units should not be dragged into position. Lintels should have a minimum of 150mm masonry between the flange and the application level of any form of loading. 3 Raise the inner and outer leaves simultaneously to avoid excessive eccentricity of loading. 6 When installing concrete floor units or other heavy components above a lintel. Ensure lintel is not damaged. Masonry immediately above the lintel should be allowed to cure.12 LINTEL GUIDE Lintel Installation Guide 1 Lintels should be installed with a minimum end bearing of 150mm. Outside Inside . ENSURE LINTEL IS LEVEL ALONG ITS LENGTH Ensure lintel is level along its length. 2 The masonry above the lintel should be built in accordance with BS EN 1996-2:2006. Ensure a nominal 150mm end bearing at each end. 9 When the underside of a lintel is exposed. bedded on mortar and levelled along its length and across its width. with a maximum height difference of 225mm (masonry should be laid on a mortar bed and all perpendicular joints should be filled). its appearance can be enhanced by the addition of lintel soffit cladding. Consult IG’s technical department if applying a point load above a lintel. 7 Point loads should not be applied directly onto lintel flanges. 5 The NHBC recommend a damp proof course (DPC) or cavity tray should be installed over all openings in external cavity walls. 150mm minimum 150mm minimum Ensure lintel is fully bedded on bricklaying mortar Structural opening or clear span 4 Allow the mortar to cure before applying floor or roof loads (Temporary propping beneath a steel lintel is practised to facilitate speed of construction). Ensure lintel is fully bedded on bricklaying mortar. Ensure lintel is fully bedded on bricklaying mortar. 10 Do not cut lintels to length or modify them in any way without consulting an IG engineer.

Timber Plank * Suitability of props is the responsibility of site management. IG recommends that they are stored one bundle high only. • Do not use damaged lintels. DISPOSAL Ensure that all IG packaging and waste are disposed of responsibly. they are also insulated with preformed polystyrene. • A PROPPING Propping a lintel is sometimes practiced to facilitate speed of construction. Proprietary stop ends should be used or alternatively the DPC should extend to the edge of the external lintel flange and 50-150mm beyond the end of the lintel (depending on coursing) to allow formation of an integral stop end at a suitable perpendicular joint. IG steel products are produced from steel plate which may present sharp edges. COSHH . Inside Outside B • Provide weep holes at a maximum of 450mm intervals (at least two per opening) with fair-faced masonry. Consider the use of soffit cladding for all coastal sites. Lintels should be stored on wooden skids on flat ground. Most lintels contain a perforated steel key plate for rendering purposes and/or a steel strengthening plate for heavy duty requirements which also poses no hazard. Stop ends should be provided as specified by BS EN 1996-2:2006 and the NHBC. Suitable personal protective equipment should be worn at all times during handling and installation. to avoid moisture entering the cavity near the reveals.

Due care must be given to the environmental impact of the disposal method. Stainless steel to be used within 500m of the coast (NHBC). a horizontal timber plank should be placed along the underside of the lintel and suitable* props secured into place at maximum 1200mm centres. Gloves should be worn to avoid injury from any sharp edges or corners.5mm B Masonry should not overhang any flange by more than 30mm.DPC IG lintels are fabricated from galvanised or stainless steel and pose no toxicity hazard. In accordance with BS EN 1996-2:2006 and NHBC requirements all external wall lintels MUST be installed with a flexible damp proof course with the exception of those adequately protected by an eaves overhang or similar form of protection. To avoid lifting strains any lintels other than the shortest lengths should be lifted by at least two people or alternatively by mechanical means.BETTER BY DESIGN SAFETY PRECAUTIONS LINTEL POSITION WITHIN A CAVITY WALL A Lintel should be centred in the cavity and the distance between lintel up-stand and masonry must not exceed 8. The banding straps are taut and care should be taken when cutting these to avoid personal injury and/or the bundle collapsing. It should only be introduced after initial masonry load has been applied to the lintel. A When lifting or carrying a lintel undertake a personal risk assessment paying attention to the size and weight of the product. STORAGE Inside Outside When propping a lintel.

150mm Inner Leaf

Lintels may be propped to facilitate speed
of construction. See Lintel Installation
on page 12. Inner leaf block should not
overhang the lintel flange by more than
25mm. Blockwork built tight against inner
face of the lintel. Place mortar bed on top
of blockwork before floor units are laid to
provide even distribution of load.
