4-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 4-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.

4-layer brick beams for back-up masonry and façade

11 cm (4N)*-masonry beams
Produced with an extruder, or machine-processed ”hand-made bricks”.
Machine-processed ”hand-made” brick beams for visible masonry are always produced of brick of the same part  with which the façade has been bricked.
They are produced as standard in a length of 27 bricks, for light openings of maximum 6,240 mm.

They are used for façades and back-up masonry, where a composite brick lintel does not provide enough support.

17 cm (4B)*-masonry beams
Produced of extruded or machine-processed ”hand-made”.

* 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.

Pre-stressed 4-layer brick beams are produced in a width of min. 108 mm. Length and bond on demand. If they are used as supporting beams, they are movably reinforced. The sizing is done according to the Carlsberg Bjælker's-certified programme.

The beams are calculated in such a way that they can bear the occurring load.

Please note: You must specify the type of bond and the start code when you order.
