Oak fireplace beam – Order online today
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.
Unless otherwise stated fixing brackets will be supplied in one of the larger sides. Depending on the depth of your beam we will provide a unique fixing system to suit. If your shaped oak fireplace beam is 4.5 inches deep or less, we machine keyhole brackets into the back. For oak beams greater than 4.5″ inches deep we will pre drill the back of the beam and supply high quality Hafele concealed shelf supports. Both are a fantastic fixing solutions.

Due to machining and sanding beams are typically up to 1/2″ smaller than the size stated.
