Genuine Galintel® hot-dip galvanised steel lintels are 40% lighter than solid lintels (and 40% easier to carry) with a high strength to weight ratio.
The ribbed Galintel® profile creates a superior bond with the mortar. The brickwork, mortar and lintel work together to form a composite beam with exceptional strength and loadcarrying capacity.
You won’t have to worry about corroded lintels and cracked brickwork, thanks to the generous galvanising layer – including the ends of the product where corrosion often begins
All Galintel® bars comply with the following standards:
- Hot-dip galvanised toAS/NZS4680:2006
- Up to R3 durability ratings in accordance with AS/NZS2699.3:2001
- Loads in accordance with AS/NZS1170.1:2002

Durability & corrosion resistance (R3 rating)
All Galintel® products are hot-dip galvanised with a heavy zinc coating of 600 g/m2 which complies with an R3 durability rating. Durability is a function of the thickness of the zinc coating (black steel is classified as RO and stainless steel as R5). Galintels® can achieve an R4 durability rating when coated with a two-part epoxy coating (contact Galintel for specification sheet).
