Alternative term: Lintol

A beam over a wall opening, typically over a door or window, to carry the wall load.

Note: The German term Sturz and the French term linteau can also apply to a brick arch construction used instead of a lintel.

Please note that this is the term as it stands in the original IALA Dictionary edition (1970-1989)
