Belzona® Solution For Spalled Victorian Lintel

 
 

Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Wall Problem Areas (WPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Shoe manufacturer, South West England

 
 

Application Date:

October 2013

 
 

Application Situation:

A new back-up generator for the site was to be housed in the client’s Victorian boiler house. Vibration from the new generator created a high risk of falling debris from the degraded lintels.

 
 

Problem:

The lintels of the main door and windows had suffered severe deterioration. Carbonation of the concrete had allowed rebar corrosion leading to spalling of the concrete. The Belzona solution was selected due to the materials lightweight, non-porous and high adhesion together with its ability to complete the repair quickly and with minimal disturbance.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4141 (Magma-Build)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

The works were carried out in accordance with the Belzona Systems leaflet WPA-4.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Due to the age of the building and time constraints, replacement of the lintels was not an option. The Belzona solution was carried out over two days and at a fraction of the cost to replace.
