Oak Fireplace Beam *Shaped*
Oak Fireplace Beam - Shaped
Our shaped oak fireplace beam is entirely exclusive to Traditional Beams. We work each beam skilfully, often around knots, giving the appearance of a natural edge. We round off and soften all corners and edges.
All of 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 we provide can be fixed into brick, stone or breeze block walls. You can also fix to stud walls where timer uprights can be located. Please note: The back of the oak fireplace beam is left unfinished.

- Oak Fireplace Beam with a natural shaped appearance
Please be aware that because oak is a natural product, each oak fireplace beam 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, which we will treat these beams with anti infestation solution.
All of our oak beams are well air dried ensuring minimal movement once you install it in your home. As your oak fireplace beam adjusts to your room temperature, further cracks may appear also adding to the character. This is nothing to worry about. Please note that we can't treat any of the above as defects.
Oak Beams are a combustible material, therefore it is important that you position the beam 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.
