What type of lintel to use?

8 days ago

Need some advice on what lintel to use?
It is an internal single brick load bearing wall and I am looking to cut another 820 frameless door into it.
After propping should I be cutting out courses and install and brick/cement lintel?
Or will a flat 8mm galv lentil be OK?
Or should I go an angle render lintel?
The finish will be rendered and white set plaster.
I don't know if I go the angled lintel if the verticle surface will need to be also checked into the brick to allow a flat rendered surface.
Any ideas would be great.
