Supreme Concrete “sets standard for compliance” with fire-rated lintels

22 June 2022

SUPREME CONCRETE – itself part of Ibstock – has launched a new range of high fire-rated lintels, including extreme fire-rated lintels, that maintain a 300-minute load bearing capacity in intense fire conditions. The move renders Supreme Concrete one of the only manufacturers in the UK to provide such an extensive offer of accredited lintels.

The high-performance range has undergone comprehensive third party testing and complies with all recognised industry specifications to provide construction professionals with a portfolio of resilient concrete lintels that deliver “unrivalled” performance and compliance.

This includes five-hour, fire-rated lintels that maintain 300-minute load bearing capability when subject to fire conditions, in addition to lintels with 90-minute and 120-minute load bearing capabilities when subject to intense fire conditions.

Gavin Hoe, sales director for Supreme Concrete, informed Fire Safety Matters: “As a trusted and experienced supplier of essential building components, Supreme Concrete is recognised throughout the industry as setting the standard for quality and compliance. The development of our new high fire-rated and extreme fire-rated lintel ranges reflects our continued dedication to providing construction professionals with the very latest innovations in fire integrity products that deliver first class performance.”

Hoe added: “Buildings are designed to withstand actions from numerous anticipated hazards in order to ensure life and structural safety. Our new concrete lintels are proven to ensure the structural stability of a building during fire exposure, while at the same time successfully containing fire spread for the allocated time period.”

NBS BIM Object Standard

The new fire-rated lintels ranges conform to the NBS BIM Object Standard and advice will be provided by Supreme Concrete specialists to ensure that the correct lintel is specified for the chosen application.

Supreme Concrete’s in-house team will also work together with architects and specifiers across a comprehensive range of projects in order to deliver training and technical support requirements.

Available for nationwide delivery, the high fire-rated and extreme fire-rated lintels are an integral extension of Supreme Concrete’s offer comprising modern and traditional concrete lintels, which includes pre-stressed, high-strength and pre-cast to deliver exceptional strength, durability and fire resistance.
