The Azure Lintel range is designed to allow an opening to be created in a single leaf of masonry, typically the external leaf of a cavity with an integrated brick slip soffit feature. The brick slip soffit feature is bonded to the lintel carrier using a specifically formulated resin adhesive in various bonds to match seamlessly with facing brickwork and reveals where relevant.
Both the lintels and the brick slips have been independently tested by notified and technical approved bodies to evaluate and validate the load capacity, physical performance and long term durability of all components. The lintels have been designed in line with the requirements of BS EN 845-2 & BS 5977-1 and tested in line with BS EN 846-9. The brick slips are tested using the guidance of ETAG 034 to evaluate the accelerated Freeze/Thaw weather resistance both saturated and dried of the brick slips bonded to stainless steel to achieve a service life of 60 years.
