Throated Lintels

We also manufacture fireplace throated lintels. These greatly assist the draw of the flue, and are fitted above the opening of the fire.

A typical example would be large square opening with a basket.

The throated lintel will create a venturi effect and accelerate the flue gas up the chimney. It is recommended to use them in any situation where a traditional arched insert is not fitted.  throated lintels are not structurally load bearing ,we recommend a structural stress tested lintel is in place above the throated lintel where possible for structural support.

we are able to offer fast delivery around mainland UK using 3rd party couriers at competitive delivery prices subject to availability and location. Unfortunately in current times we cannot offer pallet delivery as a service but can in some cases prepare the lintels for pallet collection if pallet collection is arranged by the customer . t&c apply
