Arch Lintels


Arches come in all shapes and sizes and although only cavity wall arches are shown here we can make arch lintels for all wall constructions and almost any shape you can image!

Because of the quantity of welding required for arch lintels, and the typical level of exposure to the elements, many of our arch lintels are ordered in stainless steel. We have a larger and more detailed selection of arches on our dedicated Stainless site, to visit click here.

If economy is your primary concern, or only minimal durability is required, then our galvanised range on this page complies with relevant British standards and hasn’t changed for nearly 20 years!

Materials

 

The arches of our traditional range have always been available in four basic material grades; A, B, C & D.

This is still the case. The arches in our new dedicated stainless range are manufactured from high-strength stainless steels, whereas Grade 304 is a low-strength steel and remains in this range.

A - Grade 304 Stainless Steel
B - S275 structural steel
C - Hot dip Galvanised to 920gsm
D - Pre Galvanised to 600gsm

An optional Bitumastic coating can be added by specifying “1” after the letter, for example: “C1”.

How To Order

To order arches from our G600 Galvanised range, you need to tell us the type of arch you want, the shape of the arch and the dimensions. A guide to our G600 arches, shapes and how to specify dimensions can be viewed by clicking the link to the right. Lead times are normally under a week!

G800 Arch Information

Special Features

All our cavity wall and outer leaf arches are manufactured with a ‘square’ back. This enables easy installation of the DPC over the lintel, or alternatively, enables the lintel itself to act as a DPC if it is manufactured in stainless steel.

In order for the lintel to act as a DPC (no separate DPC required) additional stop-ends are required to turn the lintel into a ‘Cavity tray Lintel’. This is the Lintray® system, unique to Harvey Lintels. Visit our Technical section for more details.

Larger arch lintels incorporate brick ties fixed to the lintel at 450 centres, so the outer skin of masonry remains fastened to the inner in accordance with British Standards.
