Galvanized Lintel J-Bar™ – GALINTEL®


GALINTEL® Galvanized Lintel J-Bar™

The GALINTEL® J-Bar™ Shelf Beam supplied by InfraBuild Reinforcing is the ideal solution for cavity walls, either double brick, or brick veneer.

The J-Bar™ was developed in response to demand from builders for an economical substitute for built-up steel sections such as parallel flange channel and plate. Similar to a T-bar but with a special top flange incorporated into the upright section, the GALINTEL® J-Bar* provides an off-the shelf solution for cavity walls and is hot dip galvanized.

Available from accredited GALINTEL® distributors, the J-Bar™ is a convenient alternative to custom-made beams such as PFC and flat plate, which have to be fabricated and galvanized.

As with all quality GALINTEL® products, the J-Bar™ Shelf Beam is provided with a full product warranty and safe load tables.
