Hollowed Out & L-Shaped Beams
Tradoak will help you to achieve the best aesthetics
from your authentic oak beam structure.
We can fabricate Hollowed-Out beams from both Reclaimed and Air Dried oak to cover RSJs and steels that have been required by architects or surveyors, or for other aesthetic reasons, eg, where a solid beam would be too heavy. Once they are in place, no-one could ever tell the difference between these carefully hand-crafted beams and solid oak pieces.
What types of hollowed beam are there?
Hollowed oak beams fall into two main categories – L and U-shaped.
- L-shaped beams give the appearance of a solid beam. They can be used for anything which is visible from two adjoining sides such as a door reveal, window reveal, door head or window sill.
- U-shaped beams are mainly used to conceal something which is visible on three sides. For example, a steel lintel in a ceiling, a concrete post or pillar.
