brick parapet lintels

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Hi Andy:


What IDS has done in the past is:

1.       Provide new horizontal saw-cuts in the brick inside and out

2.       Insert steel angle lintels inside and outside in the saw-cut slots with through-bolts.  If your new parapet windows are continuous, you may want to do this in sections.

3.       Remove existing brick below the new angle lintels, install steel posts.


I don’t know if the architect will permit a steel angle lintel exposed on the outside, so that may need your design attention.
