King Stone Products go for EDF Specification

The development of the new Super Fire Rated Concrete Lintels sparked interest recently from EDF Energy and Sunray Doors, who presented King Stone Products with the challenge to design a concrete lintel that would satisfy door location bolt requirements, whilst still offering a four hour fire rating, and ensuring the correct door opening could be built on site.

The solution was the EDF Type 29 Concrete Lintel, which utilizes King Stone’s unique new Liquid Granite Product. This solution was devised by ensuring a 60 mm cover to the specially designed reinforcement cage, and giving the concrete lintel stooled ends.

The supporting data is currently with EDF and Sunray Doors for their consideration, and King Stone is confident that the new concrete lintel, available now, will be written into all EDF drawings by the end of the year.
