Where to use Lintels / Heads?
Granite lintels are mainly used as window and / or door surrounds, containing of two uprights and one head for the top of the window. For a complete window granite finish, we stock Chinese granite window sills which come from the same quarry making sure that they are as close to a perfect match as natural stone can get.
Solid granite lintels are a type of structural support used in construction. They are horizontal load-bearing elements that span across openings such as windows and doors, and are designed to transfer the weight of the structure above the opening to the vertical supports on either side. Granite is a popular material for lintels because of its durability and strength. It is able to support heavy loads without cracking or bending. They are often the desired stone for in high-end residential and commercial construction, and can add a touch of elegance to the overall design.
In addition to their structural function, granite lintels can also be used decorative elements. Lintels can be also used for a variety of different projects as granite is a very hard wearing stone and requires very little maintenance. This makes it an ideal material for outdoor use. Overall Granite is a timeless design choice that can enhance the beauty, durability, and overall value of a building.
