Hi-Therm Lintels Psi 0.05 W/m-K

Hi-Therm Lintels

HT/S Standard Load
HT/HD Heavy Duty Load

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. Lintels may be propped to facilitate speed of construction.

IG Lintels leads the way with the development of a completely unique range of lintels to address the thermal requirements of new building regulations, which require that steel lintels should be assessed for their effect on the thermal performance of a building. The thermal performance of is expressed in terms of Psi Values (Ψ) i.e. linear thermal transmittance.

Psi Comparison Chart

To help understand the immense thermal benefits of the Hi-Therm Lintel it must be compared to other lintel types.

Testing of IG’s Hi-Therm Lintel was carried out by the BRE (Building Research Establishment) using Physibel’s thermal analysis software TRISCO which complies with BS EN ISO 10211-1. The modelling follows the requirements of the BRE conventions document BR497.

Key Benefits

  • Up to 5 times more thermally efficient than a steel cavity wall lintel, Hi-Therm outperforms other lintels.
  • The significant reductions in thermal bridging due to the GRP component will assist in the building design process to achieve compliance with Part L and The Code for Sustainable Homes.
  • The use of Hi-Therm will make a significant contribution to a buildings performance in respect of the Fabric Energy Efficiency Standards (FEES).
  • Outperforms Stainless Steel on price and corrosion resistance.

Design Features

  • Patented GRP and Galvanised Steel hybrid design.
  • Galvanised steel is used to support the heavier load on the inner leaf of the cavity wall.
  • Profiled CFC free insulation ensures the continuity of insulation.
