No One Does It Better, No One Takes More Care That's a Promise

Steel lintols for domestic or commercial use

The images below give a rough idea of what Traditional Structures Ltd can provide for use in either domestic dwellings or commercial / industrial properties.

Most steel lintols are either made from a ub (universal beam) or a uc (universal column). In general terms a ub is usually higher than it is wide and a uc roughly the same height and width. 

We can provide lintols from any material your engineer has requested, not just ub's and uc's - please get in touch and let us know your requirements.

Single UB/UC

The most basic form of lintol is a single ub or uc. 

If you provide us with the size your engineer has requested we can cut to size, drill any holes you require for timbers or other fittings, protect with a coat of paint and deliver straight to your site

Double UB/UC

Similar to the lintol shown above but with a pair of ub's or uc's bolted side-by-side. 

We can provide any size material as per your engineers requirements cut to size, drilled as required, painted and delivered direct to site.

You will need to tell us the overall width of the pair and what type of spacer material you require (usually a small diameter tube), along with the length and we'll do the rest.

T-Section ub/uc

This detail shows a pair of either ub's or uc's bolted together to form a T-section.

Any size material can be fabricated as per your engineers requirements, these will cut to size, drilled and welded for the connection, painted and delivered to site.

We will just need the lengths of the two pieces and the location and type of the connection and we can do the rest.

Single, spliced ub/uc

This lintol is very similar in appearance to the first one in the list other than it is spliced into two or more pieces, this is usually done if the overall item is too heavy in one piece or the access to install it is restricted.

We will need from your engineer the overall length of the bar, how many splices are required and whether it is a standard splice or a plated splice as shown in the image to the left.

Once we have all the details we will cut , fabricate, paint and deliver straight to your site.  

If you need them we can provide spreader and packing plates as per your requirements.

All fixings, bolts, all-threads and any plates required will be included in any quote given. 

Please be aware that we are unable to advise what size and weight of material you require, your structural engineer will provide you with this information and we will work to this.
