Layout of Continuous Lintel Bands:


Instead of lintels over openings only, continuous lintel bands are usually provided in buildings.

The following practice is generally recommended in buildings when continuous belts are cast at top of window and door levels. Such lintels are necessary as in expansive soils or for earthquake resistant design. The minimum thickness of concrete in the stretches without openings should be a 1:2:4 concrete layer of 75 mm (3 inches) thickness with one layer of reinforcement as show in table 8.1. Cross reinforcement of 8 mm at 30 cm centres is also provided. clc bricks manufacturing process ,In special situations a beam similar to the plinth beam is also adopted in continuous lintel. Along the outside of the building over windows and outside doors, the lintels are generally combined with cantilevering sunshades. In such cases it is preferable to have a minimum thickness of concrete as 150 mm (6”) for the lintel. The recommended steel in the concrete bands for earthquake resistance is given in Table 8.1.

In ordinary buildings built in earthquake regions, these continuous lintels above the door and window level are mandatory. In difficult situations, where they may run at two different levels, concrete should be cast vertically to tie it up, if necessary, with the roof or floor slab.
