Lintel failure and lintel reinforcement

Newman’s have begun a lintel reinforcement scheme for a social housing client in south London to a low level block of flats.

The original timber windows were removed by a glazing contractor who discovered that the brickwork was built without any Intel’s present so upon removal of the frame the masonry above failed causing cracking and sagging.

Helical Rods Are Installed

Twistfix helical rods will be installed between the window openings to repair the masonry and create lintels within the brickwork and pinning ties installed vertically through the last course of bricks pinning it into sound masonry.

Our technicians will be onsite for only one week to allow the glazing contractor to ccarry out their works safely.
