Lintel load tables and what they mean

Lintel load tables and what they mean

You may have seen some specification tables on our product pages for our steel lintels. But, you aren’t too sure what all the parts really mean? Well, you’re in the right place! Let us tell you!

Below is a detailed diagram of what all the parts of our specification tables mean.

The concrete lintel specification tables are similar to steel lintels, however, there are two slight differences. 

Very important thing to remember is not to confuse the kNm with kN/m. They are very similar, and it is so easy to confuse the two. However, the kN/m is kilonewtons per metre or divided by metre. Whereas, kNm is a force measurement where kilonewtons are times metres.
