Prefabricated Structural Arches

Time consuming construction and high level brick skills can be avoided with the use of Brick Products pre-formed structural arches

These products are regularly called for and depending upon the load bearing requirements of the arch and its configuration would dictate the type of ‘backing lintel’ recommended for the relevant application.

Two types of ‘backing lintel’ for structural arches are offered by Brick Products which are ‘hollow steel section’ primarily used for the manufacture of flat gauge arches with or without skewback or ‘high grade reinforced concrete lintels’ for all other types of arch.

Design of ‘facing’ would either be in strict accordance with your specification or alternatively your choice of design from our wide range of options.

Super Lightweight Arches

Time consuming construction and high level brick skills can be avoided with the use of Brick Products unique super lightweight arches.

Pushing the boundary of ‘light weightedness’ to its extreme culminated in the development of utilising a ‘backing lintel’ comprising of ‘compressed polyurethane’ encased within ‘cement bound material’ resulting in an extremely lightweight ‘backing lintel’ yet sufficiently robust to withstand the rigours of controlled site handling.

This material is quite universal enabling it to be formed and used in the manufacture of most arch configurations and facing designs.

  • Cutting and bonding of bricks
  • Super lightweight compressed polyurethane
