Closed Eaves Lintels

Eaves Lintels
Closed eaves lintels are manufactured from
galvanised steel and powder coated for extra
protection. Available in both Cougar open back or
Classic box styles

Integral insulation
Maximising thermal efficiency, minimising
cold bridging

Extra corrosion protection


Ensures optimum durability and longevity

Easy-to-use open back profile


Open back style lintels allow masonry to be built
up continuously on inner leaf

Built-in plaster key


With staggered slots to the inner flange and ribbed
underside of insulation

Extended durability
Duplex system providing twice the protection

To achieve the stated safe working load (SWL), closed


eaves lintels must be built in with solid blockwork and
continuous timber wall-plates.
Allow 150mm at each end for bearing support.
