Lintels is a structural members that are made to bear not only their load but also the other weight they have to carry. Lintels function to support the weight of the specific part of the building they are placed in.

In general, lintels is used in construction to support the load-bearing and non-load-bearing walls. It is mainly placed above the openings inside a building or home. This is because openings need to have additional support as it can be heavy to maintain the integrity of a building if it does not have any material to help sustain the weight from above. Examples of openings are windows, doors, and even fireplaces.


Lintels can be made of any material and can also be customized to fit any dimension of a specific opening. Many homeowners want to have contractors specifically make their beams, but ready-made ones are also available and can be bought from commercial suppliers.
