“We pioneered the Solid Base Angles in Australia in the 1970s winning an Australian Design Award & have been manufacturing them since. They are without a doubt the most popular product we sell.”

Pernell Briggs – Galintel Business Development Manager

The innovative Galintel Solid Base Angle steel lintels are used to support brickwork over clear openings in residential builds. They feature a unique ribbed vertical leg which helps provide a recess for mortar to bond with brick & lintel. 

What this does is help improve the bonding of mortar, brickwork, and steel to form a composite beam of superior strength and load-bearing capacity. 

They are a great option to use above windows and door openings, offering builders a simple solution for supporting bricks and blocks. 

To achieve ultimate performance, mortar must be present at all contact surfaces between the brick and lintel. This is known as composite design and the unique bond provides a masonry-like beam equal, if not superior, to other masonry beams. 

It is also vital that lintels are propped before bricklaying. Props must be no further than 1.2m apart and must remain in place until the mortar has fully cured. 

On top of being easy to install, the Galintel Solid Base Angles are hot-dip galvanised to comply with all the relevant Australian Building Codes and Standards. 

This makes the lintels more durable and have a longer service life. The Hot-dip galvanised coating allows Solid Base Angles to achieve a minimum R3 Durability rating. 

The section design & mass of the section compared to alternatives means they are also easier to transport, store, and install in your build.
