This is typically the external leaf of a cavity with an integrated brick slip soffit feature. The use of a specifically formulated resin adhesive bonds the brick slip soffit feature to the lintel carrier. Therefore allowing it to match seamlessly with facing brickwork and reveals where relevant.
Notified and technically approved bodies have independently run tests on both the Azure lintels and the brick slips. This is to evaluate and validate the load capacity, physical performance and also the long-term durability of all components. The Azure lintels have been designed in line with the requirements of BS EN 845-2 & BS 5977-1, as well as tested in line with BS EN 846-9. ACS test all brick slips using the guidance of ETAG 034. This is 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.
- Heat / Rain weathering to ETAG034 – Weathered samples only.
- Bond strength testing using ETAG004 as guidance – Control weathered samples.
- Impact testing to ISO 7892 – Control and weathered samples
