Angle Lintels

We stock or can source the full angle range from 25x25x3 EA up to 200x200x26 EA.

Steel angles are most commonly used as lintels installed over openings to support the brickwork above windows & doorways. Steel angles are often also used for a variety of fabricated items such as raking angles, shelf lintels (cast-in angles), brackets and cleats. For most applications galvanised steel angles suffice for use as lintels in Western Australia, however in very close proximity to the ocean or breaking surf the Building Code of Australia often requires an additional epoxy/painted treatment.

Angle Lintels

The most widely used angle lintel thickness is 8mm as it best suits the mortar joint between the bricks. 6mm & 10mm are also regularly used depending on the spans required by the door or window openings.

EQUAL ANGLE (EA)

Equal angles are equal in width and height; i.e. 75x75x8mm steel angles.

UNEQUAL ANGLE (UA)

Unequal angles have varied width and height; i.e. 125x75x8mm and 150x90x8mm steel angles.

ANGLE SIZES & SPANS*
