IG’s Brick Feature Lintels are one piece prefabricated units, manufactured bespoke to order, achieving even the most challenging architectural designs.
IG Lintels offers specifiers a technically advanced, offsite solution for an extensive range of brick details including arches, panels, soffits and other architectural features. This unique Brick Feature Lintel system enables complex brickwork details to be carried out in a factory environment providing high standards of quality controls.
IG collects a consignment of bricks from site, cuts these into slips and bonds to IG’s patented Brick Feature lintel product, to suit the client’s design. This eliminates the need for a specialist brickwork contractor spending hours onsite, cutting bricks to suit complicated structural openings. The finished Brick Feature Lintel joins seamlessly with the already constructed brickwork.
Offering a bespoke design service, IG’s team of engineers can use their technical expertise to develop unique solutions to complicated brickwork over openings. By contacting them at an early stage of the design process, architects can potentially gain significantly more design flexibility for their projects. Every Brick Feature Lintel is manufactured bespoke to order, ensuring that each individual unit is customised according to the unique size, shape and aesthetic requirements of the project.
The production of Brick Feature Lintels offsite in a factory environment, ensures that the bonding process occurs in optimum controlled conditions free from wet weather, extreme temperature and excessive dust. The patented design of the perforated steelwork interfaces with the BBA approved adhesive to pass through and form a mushroom on the inside of the steel, forming a mechanical lock between the lintel and the bricks.
IG’s Brick Feature Lintels can accommodate a large range of bond patterns and with segmental arches, flat arches, Gothic and parabolic arches as well as apex arches and bullseyes, the possibilities are endless. These products offer builders and contractors a unique way to enhance the quality of their brickwork detailing in a highly labour efficient way at a time when the skills are acknowledged to be in short display onsite.
