Description

In this article BRANZ gives an advice on: if it’s necessary to have a lintel over an opening in a wall under a gable end where the gable framing may be able to span the opening without support from the lintel. 

It is common to see lintel beams over an opening in a wall under a gable end. These have presumably been sized to match other loadbearing lintels on the job. This is obviously a simple, expedient solution but may not be necessary if the gable end structure is self-supporting.

Scope

This article gives two options:

  • Non-loadbearing lintel
  • Loadbearing lintel
