Lintel Comparison

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Seaint,
 
I am interested in a comparison of the various lintel types for masonry construction.
 
What are some of the particular pros and cons to steel beam v. precast concrete v. CMU lintel?
 
Are there any particular span or loading ranges that warrant one type over another?
 
TIA,
