    All,

    Looking to convert 2 single door garages to one double door.

    Attached pic of the single lintel with runs the full length of the garage (5.7m), anybody has any ideas if this would need to be replaced, (search online but all I can find is its an IG Lintel).

    Any help much appreciated

    I'd say yes it needs replacinging as it hsas been spec'd to have a pillar in the middle. 5.7 is a fair old span

    So after looking at this further, I notice the IG lintel is in 2 pieces (cleverly covered by wiring), so a new beam spanning 5.6m will be required, need to speak to local builder!!

    Who will want you to speak to a Structural engineer I would bet!

    Start with an SE and then see if you really want to do it!
