I have a metal lintel how do I install?

Metal lintels, screws and wall plugs, drilling obstructions

Steel/metal lintels are more difficult to fix to but it can be done!

Once you have drilled through the plaster and reached the lintel, you must then swap drill bits for a high speed steel bit and then use self tapping screws to fix the blind.

We always recommend checking with a recognised retailer such as Screwfix or B&Q before you proceed if unsure.

Alternatively, you can install into the side of the window recess, or onto the window itself (if permitting).
