IG Masonry Support Systems is delighted to have attained BBA Agrément certificate for its Brick Slip Lintels. This valuable third party endorsement for the product’s performance will give specifiers and contractors extra assurance that our Brick Slip Lintels for external masonry have been rigorously tested to industry standards.
The British Board of Agrément is one of the UK’s leading notified bodies offering approval, certification and test services to manufacturers of products and systems supplying the construction industry. BBA approval is recognised by building control, government departments, architects, local authorities, specifiers, and industry insurers like the National House Builders Council (NHBC).
IG’s brick slip lintels are structural lintels with brick slips bonded to them. Available in a range of different bond patterns, IG’s brick slip lintels ensure that the brick is visible on the soffit of the lintel. This eliminates the need for any formwork, propping or site cutting of bricks where the lintel is required. The prefabricated units are manufactured off-site and delivered complete with unpointed bricks bonded to them offering a major reduction in on-site labour. The key benefits of the IG Brick Slip Lintels is they are manufactured bespoke to your requirements, simply installed as a standard lintel, they blend seamlessly with already constructed brickwork and offer cost savings for the contractor.
Owen Coyle, IG Masonry Support Systems General Manager said, “This accreditation from the world renowned BBA, further strengthens our position as a leading supplier of masonry support systems, providing high quality solutions for designers and contractors”.
