New Build Lintel System

Specialist roller shutter lintel
system for new build projects

The Process

Stage 1
The builder or construction company must calculate their subframe and lintel sizes. They then place their order with Warm Protection allowing 4-6 weeks for delivery.

Stage 2
Subframes and lintels are delivered direct to site from Warm Protection Products Ltd.

Stage 3
The builder or construction company build around the subframes using supplied brick and blockwork wall-ties. Brick and blockwork are built up to opening heights where internal blockwork is then stepped.

Stage 4
Lintels are then lowered onto the top of the subframe guide track locators. Lintels are then centred to allow equal overhang of the shutter lintel endplates at each side of the opening. Lintels are then levelled for the next stage.

Stage 5
Construction of brickwork and blockwork is continued around and above the lintel until complete.

Stage 6
Once installation of the lintel and subframe is complete, the support timbers and braces from the subframe can be removed. Windows/doors can be installed between the subframes ensuring no projection of handles, vent or sashes fall in the line of the shutter guide track. Projections of door/windows should be set back at least 20mm from the shutter line.

Stage 7
Installation of roller shutter barrel assembly and bracketry followed by installation of roller shutter curtain assembly and internal lintel roller shutter insulation. Mechanical limits and locking systems for shutters are then tested and commissioned.

Stage 8
Plastering around lintel installation. (Not facia).

Stage 9
Final electrical fix, spur and switch installation and connection by others. Installations of MDF Facia and Soffit Board by Contractor.

Stage 10
Final check on shutters before handover.
