Roller Shutters & Lintel Systems
Harvey Steel Lintels manufacture a wide range of lintels specially designed to house roller shutter systems.
To order a roller shutter lintel, a standard lintel is selected that would suit the duty (eg SC100b) and they design an appropriate shutter box that has the equivalent strength of that lintel.
Harvey Steel Lintels have key distributors of these systems that will assist with the specification of the shutter system itself, including motor controls, lath choice and locking systems.

The Advantages of Integrated Shutters
Housing the roller shutter inside the lintel usually means it is completely contained within the wall, so the eye-sore of a metal shutter-box is eliminated.
The mechanism can be readily accessed from the inside through a removable panel (if required) that is flush on the wall and does not intrude on the interior finish.
Harvey Steel Lintels' major distributors have cavity-closer guide systems that are concealed in the cavity of the wall. This not only weatherproofs the system, but also heightens security by ensuring the guides cannot be tampered with.
Wind Posts & Lintel Systems
We manufacture a wide range of wind posts to order, in galvanised steel or one of our stainless steels. You can either supply us with the required wind post properties or provide details of the building.
Our wind posts are fabricated with long slots to suit standard T-Shape brick ties.
Because we manufacture to order, design to your special requirements is not problem. We are frequently able to design wind posts for restricted spaces that exceed the strength of other mass produced posts.
We can design head and base fixings on our wind posts for virtually any situation
Integrated with Lintels
We can supply most of our lintels with adjustable end brackets to connect to our wind posts, comprising a complete system.
This system is indispensable where expansion joints produce unrestrained wall areas between wind posts or where masonry bearings are not possible.
These systems are also frequently specified in situations where closely spaced windows would normally mean the lintel bearings do not allow enough space for a wind post.
