Supergalv Lintel Range
Supergalv Lintels are the only range that guarantees complete and consistent protection.
Every lintel is galvanized AFTER production
Painting cut ends after production will always leave weak points for corrosion to begin. At Birtley, no edges are ever left with inferior protection. That’s why Birtley Supergalv is the ONLY lintel range that guarantees complete and consistent protection.
Every lintel is made from structural steel to EN10025
This is 30% stronger than the pre-galvanized steel sheets typically used by other suppliers. Steel is a tried and tested material with a reliable life span.
Up to 50% more zinc protection than other lintel brands
Every Birtley Supergalv lintel has at least 65 microns of zinc, while other well-known brands have as little as 19 microns. Assuming a location with a corrosion rate of 1 micron per year, a Birtley lintel is expected to reach 65 years before first maintenance. In the same location, an inferior lintel may not even last 19 years if its paint becomes damaged.
No base plate on CB lintels
This reduces heat loss across the cavity. High thermal efficiency as standard. Our standard cavity lintels deliver up to a 55%* improvement on SAP default values in thermal bridging.
UK made, CE marked
Every standard lintel complies with EN845-2 and all current European regulations.

A hollow welded box lintel made from pressed structural grade mild steel. Galvanized coating to EN1461 and a plaster key to all surfaces. Various load options, block widths and lengths available. Can be insulated on request.
Supatherm ISO 1
The Supatherm lintel range can reduce heat loss by around 75% when compared with a standard cavity wall lintel. Options to suit all types of masonry and wall construction. To suit cavity widths from 90-150mm, lengths available from 750 to 3900mm. Standard duty, heavy duty and extra heavy duty available. Avoids propping associated with single leaf lintels.
MF: A mesh can be welded to the underside of the front flange as a key to allow a rendered soffit. As the lintel is galvanized after the mesh is attached, it doesn’t compromise the integrity of the lintel.
ND: To minimise the mortar bed thickness at the end bearings, e.g. when using stone heads and surrounds, the weather drip on the front flange of the lintel can be omitted.
NM: Where the inner leaf of a cavity wall is fair-faced and the inner flange of the lintel is not plastered, the plaster key on this flange can be omitted.
RFF: The front flange of a lintel can be reduced in length. This is most useful when using a chamfered window head or narrow brick, when a standard flange would protrude. Also used in an eaves situation.
ST: Inner and outer lead flanges can be staggered to allow for uneven coursing.
