Oak Fireplace Beam *Shaped*
Oak Fireplace Beam - Shaped
Our shaped oak fireplace beam is entirely exclusive to Traditional Beams. Each beam is skillfully worked, often around knots, to give the appearance of a natural edge. All corners and edges are rounded off and softened.
All beams with the exception of our 19cm x 14cm (7.5" x 5.5") beam will be supplied with fixings, positioned in one of the larger sides. Depending on the section size of your beam, we will provide a unique fixing system to suit. The fittings provided can be fitted into brick, stone or breeze block walls. They can also be fixed to stud walls where timber uprights can be located. Please note: The back of the beam is left unfinished.

Please be aware as oak is a natural product, each piece does vary with regards to: cracks, knots, colour and grain pattern. Beams sizes are approximate to +/- 5mm. Some beams may have small areas of pin holing which further adds to the rustic effect, we will treat these beams with anti infestation solution. All of our oak beams are well air dried ensuring minimal movement once installed in your home. As your beam adjusts to your room temperature further cracks may appear only adding to the character. This is nothing to worry about. Please note that none of the above can be treated as defects.
Oak Beams are a combustible material. It is important the the beam is positioned a safe distance away from stoves, flues and other heat sources in line with building and HETAS regulations. Installing a beam to close to a heat source may cause excessive cracking and be unsafe.
