3-layer beams

Pre-stressed brick beams are produced according to standards, in Danish normal format, in running bond.

Sizing
Carlsberg Bjælkers-specific calculation, according to applicable standards. Sizing, static calculations and goods declarations are included in the price.
 

Dimensions for pre-stressed 3-layer brick beams
They are produced up to a length of 27 bricks - 6.480 mm - for light widths of maximum 6.240 mm, because the shortest crossbar should sit on 1/2 brick at both ends of the brick beam.

3-layer brick beams for back-up masonry and façades

11 cm (3N)*-masonry beams
Produced with an extruder, or machine-processed ”hand-made bricks”.

* The first letter/The first number between brackets is the width of the lowest layer.
The second letter/The second number means the width of the respective layer.
N: The width of a brick in Danish normal format, 11 cm.
W: The width of a wide brick in Danish normal format, 17 cm.
H: The length of a brick in Danish normal format, 23 cm.

The beams may be produced with movable reinforcement. The calculation always means that it can bear the total load.

Please be careful: You must specify the type of bracing and the start direction (right/left) when you order.
