Sizing steel lintels for brick veneer

Steel lintel sizes used to be given in NZS 3604:1999 Timber-framed buildings, but all cladding information was removed from the 2011 standard. The requirements for brick veneer construction are now contained in E2/AS1 (the 2011 version that incorporates Amendment 5). Steel lintel sizes are given in Table 18E on page 116.

Summarised from BRANZ Guideline, November 2013.
