Reclaimed Oak Beam for your Fireplace
With a rustic and time worn appearance, our reclaimed oak beam is sure to add heaps of character to your fireplace. Be it to seamlessly blend in with other old features or to create a stark contrast between rustic and modern.
We craft our reclaimed oak beam from the most rustic oak timber we can source, carefully selected for its reclaimed characteristics. Large cracks and open knots are some of the rustic features we look for when selecting beams.
All beams with the exception of our 19cm x 14cm (7.5″ x 5.5″) beam will be supplied with fixing brackets and 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 oak fireplace beam is 110mm (4.25″) deep or less, we machine keyhole brackets into the back. For oak beams deeper than this we will pre drill the back of the beam and supply high quality Hafele concealed shelf supports. Both are a fantastic fixing solutions. The fittings provided can be fitted into brick, stone or breeze block walls. They can be fixed to stud walls where timber uprights can be located. Please note: The back of the beam is left unfinished.
Now available in our premium range of colours for a deeper penetration into the wood and a longer lasting finish.
