Structural Performance

Keystone Lintels are manufactured from high quality grade galvanised steel to BS EN 10346:2009 DX51D plus Z600 or Z275 with minimised spangle finish. In accordance with BS5977: part 2, 1983 (BS EN 845-2:2003) all cut edges are treated with corrosion resistant paint.

The Keystone Lintel core is entirely filled with ‘CFC free’ insulation, which completely fills all voids in the lintel, particularly at the apex ensuring continuity with wall insulation and reducing cold bridge effect in this area. This ensures that the Keystone Lintel range is one of the most thermally efficient lintels available with a thermal conductivity of 0.033 W/mk.

Keystone Lintels are manufactured to the highest quality and are continually assessed by the BSI to ensure our quality assurance systems comply with BS EN ISO 9001: 2008. The ‘Keystone People’ are also a highly trained and motivated workforce. Our manufacturing premises have been approved as a N.V.Q. Training Centre and the company has also received the Investors In People Accreditation. Keystone is committed to the continuous development of our Environmental Management Systems, working in partnership with our specifiers, customers and suppliers. Keystone Lintels Ltd are the first steel lintel manufacturer to be awarded BS EN ISO 14001:2004.

The Keystone Lintel range have safe working loads shown in each applicable loading table, taking into account the differential loading arrangements which are common to traditional cavity wall construction. Differential Load 3:1 ratio, 75% load on inner leaf. Differential Load 19:1 ratio, 95% load on inner leaf. Lintel Types HD/K, S/K-50 (215WIL), S/K-70 (215WIL), SK-90 (215WIL), S/K-110, S/K-130, S/K-150, SB/K, T/K, SL/K, RB/K, TJ/K, TW/K, INT/K, SW/K, IB/K, EL/K-50, EL/K-90, CFS/K, X/K have been tested as a composite unit with surrounding masonry, built in accordance with BS5628-3:2005. These composite units have been tested in accordance with the requirements of BS5977: part 2 1983 (BS EN 845-2:2003).

Testing

BBA – Extensive testing has been carried out on the Keystone range of lintels. The lintel testing procedure and Agrément Board assessment is carried out under the direct supervision of the University of Ulster. Fire Test – The Keystone S/K lintel range has been subjected to fire tests at the Warrington Fire Research Station and has achieved a one hour fire certificate by successfully supporting their imposed load for 48 hours after the tests. Durability – The service life of lintels shall be the same as that anticipated for the building within which they are used, when used in conjunction with a flexible D.P.C. and where the normal humidity and condensation levels of a habitable building exist. The Keystone Lintel range complies with the technical requirements of the Housing Association Property Mutual

Technical Data

Installation

Lintels should be installed with a minimum end bearing of 150mm bedded in mortar, levelled along its length and across its width. With cavity walls, both leaves should be raised together to avoid excessive eccentricity of loading and be allowed to cure before applying floor or roof loads. Blockwork is permitted to overhang the lintel flange by a maximum of 25mm. Point loads and concrete floor units should not be applied without prior consultation with our Technical Department or a Structural Engineer. Care should also be exercised in the selection of lintels for each application with regard to wall construction, cavity width and loads applied. COSHH – All components and materials in our products are considered as non-hazardous to health under normal conditions of use as determined by COSHH Regulations 1994. Due care should be taken when lifting and handling lintels with regard to weights. A table of weights for individual lintel types is available on request. For further information contact our Technical Department. A cavity tray should be installed over all openings in external cavity walls.

Gable Abutment

Refurbishment


CPD Online: www.keystonelintels.co.uk/cpd

Cavity Trays

Gable Abutment System When a stepped or staggered gable abutment is formed the status of the external skin below the roof line changes to that of an internal skin. Accordingly, every gable abutment must be constructed so as to prevent dampness and rainwater from penetrating below the abutting roof line. The Keystone gable abutment cavity tray forms a stepped cavity dpc which is incorporated into the building during bricklaying. The completed structure is ready to receive roof lead flashing in the conventional way.

The Keystone Cavity Tray - Type GA Manufactured from polypropylene, the Keystone gable abutment cavity tray is available in three sizes to suit all roof pitches up to 60°. It is suitable for use in all brick, block and timber-framed constructions, the large bridging piece catering for cavity widths from 50mm to 100mm. Supplied flat, the pre-creased trays allow for easy on-site folding to the required shape catchment, left and right hand or ridge tray. A locating lip facilitates the accurate placement of trays during bricklaying.

Calculating Quantities The single-element system makes the calculation of quantities very simple. Whether you are building with bricks or blocks the rule is the same: you require one cavity tray per course per slope. On a double slope roof this calculation will give you an extra tray that can be used to lengthen the ridge tray if required.

Sizes and Roof Pitches The Keystone gable abutment cavity tray is available in three sizes. Trays are supplied in shrink-wrapped flat packs in the quantities indicated or as single items.

Note: All packs contain full installation instructions and folding instructions are printed on each tray

Internal / External Corners

In addition, existing cavity trays which have been poorly constructed or have rotted allowing water to leak through must be replaced.

The Keystone Cavity Tray - Type RFT Available off-the-shelf in flat-packs, the Keystone refurbishment tray combines ease of handling, transportation and use with complete effectiveness. It meets all current building regulations and NHBC requirements. Manufactured from polypropylene, the Keystone refurbishment tray is 620mm wide by 280mm deep and is suitable for use in all brick, block and timber-framed constructions. The large bridging piece caters for cavity widths from 50mm to 100mm.

Flat-packed foldable corners complete the Keystone gable abutment cavity tray system. Both internal (GAIC) and external (GAEC) corner trays comprise factory-jointed twopiece assemblies that are folded on site to form right-angled corners. The trays are pre-creased and incorporate adjustment for 50mm, 75mm or 100mm cavity widths and incorporate mastic sealant strips for overlapping areas.

Supplied flat, the pre-creased trays allow for easy on-site folding to the required shape including forming left and right hand end stops. A locating lip facilitates accurate placement during installation and the mastic sealant strip (protected by release paper) ensures easy and watertight overlap jointing.

Refurbishment System The Keystone refurbishment cavity trays system has been specifically developed to facilitate both the insertion of a new tray into an existing wall and the repair or alteration of an existing damp proof course.

When specifying, the following wording is recommended: “provide Keystone refurbishment Cavity Tray system from Keystone Lintels Limited, (+44 (0)1283 200150) to be installed as per manufacturer’s instructions. Trays to be folded, as instructions on tray, to form left and right hand stop-ends”.

Where to Use

Refurbishment Cavity Trays

Where a new lean-to extension meets an existing building, the original external wall becomes an internal partition below the roof line and must be protected from dampness and the penetration of rainwater. Similarly, when a flat roof is resurfaced with added insulation, or is reconstructed as an inverted roof with top paving, the roof level may be raised and thus require the skirting and its corresponding damp proof course to be lifted.

Keystone Sun Lounge Lintel

Did you know? It is universally recognised amongst home owners and house builders that a Sun Lounge is a more practical, user friendly room than a conservatory. Furthermore it is agreed that a Sun Lounge floor area can be included in the overall measurement of your house size, adding much more value to your home. A Sun Lounge Lintel is an easy way to add space at low cost when building a new house, or extending a property. An extra room rather than an add-on, a Sun Lounge is comfortable all year round while allowing you to watch the seasons come and go in comfort.

What does a Sun Lounge offer you? A Sun Lounge will blend with the existing appearance of your home. It’s easy to construct, using materials similar to your house. Also it adds genuine floor space, it is structurally sound and adds value immediately.

Is the Sun Lounge the same as a conservatory? No! A Sun Lounge is more competitively priced than a conservatory, is more visually appealing, is easier to clean, and is not a bolt on “extra”. • Much better heat retention in winter • Protection from the blazing summer sun • Noise reduction associated with rainfall on a conservatory roof

What do Keystone offer? The construction of a Sun Lounge has been simplified by the introduction of an Keystone Lintel. It is a one piece unit which removes the need for local engineering, allows architects to design the Sun Lounge to suit the property, and will keep the cost sensible. The Keystone Sun Lounge Lintel is designed and delivered ready for erection. 40

Windposts Windpost Design Keystone Windposts are manufactured from grade 304 stainless steel (grade 316 is available if required). The Keystone Technical Team will provide full product specification and schedules. All three Windpost designs are available in shorter lengths to provide the same level of stability to parapets or below windows, commonly termed Parapet or Spandrel Posts respectively. These posts are designed as cantilevers.

Keystone Windpost Systems U type windpost for cavity installation

Keystone Windposts span vertically between floors to provide additional lateral support for large panels of brickwork or large panels with openings. It is often difficult to provide suitable justification that masonry walls have lateral stiffness and therefore construction would traditionally be strengthened by the addition of thicker walls or by including columns, to effectively shorten the span of the masonry panel.

ie

Keystone manufacture three types of windpost. The U Windpost is installed within the cavity and will normally span between floor structures, with the same principle applying to the DU Windpost. Both designs leave the inner leaf of the cavity wall undisturbed. The LP Windpost is designed to be built into the inner skin of the cavity wall and normally span between floor structures.

DU type windpost for cavity installation

All Keystone Windposts are supplied with specifically designed base and upper connections and fixings. They are also supplied with a suitable number of wall-ties which will vary in relation to the post type used and the cavity width. There are five types: U Tie – For use with U & DU Windposts. L50 Tie – For use with LP Windposts (50mm cavity). L75 Tie – For use with LP Windposts (75mm cavity). L100 Tie – For use with LP Windposts (100mm cavity). L Shear Tie – For use with LP Windposts. L Shear Tie can be supplied with a de-bonding sleeve if the windpost is positioned at a vertical movement joint.
