Top Three Steel Lintel Manufacturers | UK

The UK has a long history with the Steel Lintel, and over the past sixty years, manufacturers have been innovative, competitive and Productive in Building an Industry worth Billions.

The first Steel Lintels were manufactured in the 1960s, and the construction industry was quick to embrace Lintels manufactured from Steel.

The Construction Industry championed the benefits of using Lintels made from Steel and still does today.

Due to its recyclable properties, many new benefits were identified, including the Limitless Life-cycle of Steel.

House Building or a Construction project has become more sustainable, with over eighty-five per cent of all Steel being Recycled.

There are many types of Lintels; the most common ones used in modern construction are Steel and Concrete Lintels.

Types of Lintel include;

  • Stone Lintels

  • Brick Lintel
