Use our lintel repair kit to reinforce brickwork above window and door openings. The system uses two rows of 3.5 metre helical bars. With two rods in each row, the bars work with the masonry to form a reinforced brick beam. The beam spans openings up to 2.5 metres wide.
Remove the outer portion of two mortar joints to form slots in the wall. Run the slots over the opening and 500 mm beyond each side. Space the slots 450 to 900 mm apart. Use our masonry repair grout to bond a pair of stainless-steel helical rods into each bed joint. The rods must be positioned 10 mm from each other. Fill all cracks in the brickwork. Finally, patch the wall to disguise the repair.
The row of bricks above and below the reinforced bed joints form fortified tendons. The two tendons represent a brick beam lintel's upper and lower flanges. The brickwork between the flanges represents the beam's web. The top flange tendon resists compression and the other acts in tension. The web carries vertical shear loads.
The reinforced brick lintel has a typical load-carrying capacity of 2.6 tonnes. Download the BRE Test Report and Load Tables for depth and span ratios. Please speak to one of our technical advisors for expert advice.
Our Lintel Repair Kit Complete includes the following.
We pack the 3.5 m long helical bars in a hoop for easy transport and delivery of the lintel repair kit. The reinforcing bars may retain some memory bend when uncoiled.
If you already have the tools for the lintel repairs, you can buy a Bars and Grout Only Kit at a lower cost.
