Metal lintels are used to provide cavity support in domestic and commercial settings alike, and come in a variety of shapes including single leaf lintels as well as I beams and H beams. Steel lintels offer excellent strength and durability, even when used in external settings, making them the go-to option for all kinds of exterior masonry work and for use as RSJ beams in almost all situations.
Flat steel lintels can be installed easily to support single leaf masonry, while open back cavity wall lintels ensure uniform load distribution when building timber floors, masonry walls, and roof loads above. Jewson stocks a wide range of metal lintels, from trusted brand-name manufacturers like Birtley, Catnic, Hill & Smith Holdings, IG Lintels, and Keystone. We carry a range of colours to suit your needs, including black, grey, chrome, and silver, as well as finishes ranging from galvanised steel lintels to powder-coated steel. If you’re planning a new masonry build, be sure to purchase your steel lintels with the appropriate clay bricks or concrete blocks - you can use our Brick Calculator to determine how many you will need.
