CATNIC - Bespoke Lintels Meet Creative Design

Catnic, the pioneer for steel lintels, has recently provided 142 lintels for Dunboyne Court, a new Sanctuary Care independent living complex in St Marychurch, Torquay. The project required both curved on plan and corner lintels, which would not only meet the design requirements but also the load capacity for the building.

Dunboyne Court is a 45-apartment complex, which enables its residents to not only live independently in their own home but have support on hand as their care needs change over time. The Sanctuary Group development, built by main contractor Leadbitter Group, was delivered in partnership with Torbay Council and Torbay Care Trust.

The projectís lintel solution needed to be one that was both cost-effective and could be delivered within the projectís time constraints. Whatís more, the designs needed to meet two requirements, in particular, incorporating radial designs.

Catnicís technical support team boasts the breadth of knowledge and expertise to design lintels for the most creative of openings, with in-house facilities to manufacture lintels to suit any configuration.

The curved on plan lintels are part of Catnicís Special Lintels range. The rangeís innovative bespoke designs can be manufactured to the customerís own specified radius, so the degree of curve and tolerance can be precisely calculated and delivered accordingly. Once drawings are received and approved Catnicís dedicated team is able to deliver the lintels to site within 10 days. For Dunboyne, the curved lintels were installed above the ground floor window wall in the communal lounge.

Catnicís Corner Lintels, which are also part of the Special Lintels range, enable an appearance of unspoiled window openings on two perpendicular walls of a room. The lintels come complete with support posts and base plate. Again, the lintels are available in just 10 working days from receipt of the order and approved drawing.
