Lintel Replacement Dokkum, Netherlands

84 houses had their windows replaced as part of improvement works by Thús Wonen housing association in Dokkum, Netherlands.

As the window replacement meant that new frames had to be added, Target was asked to provide a solution so that the masonry above the openings did not have to be taken down. Target drew up a specification that included adding new lintels above the openings in order to reinforce the masonry.

Now, all 84 apartments have a beam consisting of the Bar Flex masonry reinforcement system and Bond Flex cementitious grout. In addition to saving the client money by not having to remove masonry from site, the client was satisfied that the overall solution was virtually invisible.
