Oak Beams

Specialising in Oak Beams

Visually stunning, sustainable wood that ages well over time that gives every project that timeless appeal.

Why Oak beams?

Oak has been used in construction since the middle ages. As the timber ages, it acquires more character through small splits known as ‘shakes’ that give the wood a rustic worn-in look and delightful distinct scent that is unmistakable. You’ll also find that light diffuses differently in a room with wooden beams, giving a softer glow compared to sharp light that refracts from steel or concrete beams. 

Oak becomes stronger over time and is resistant to insects, rot and has even been proven to retain its shape in the event of a fire. This is because despite being a high density wood Oak is permeable, which means it ‘breathes’, allowing moisture to pass through the timber.

Different types of Oak Beams

Oak is an incredibly versatile wood. It can be fabricated into a variety of styles, allowing you to customise your space. Whether you are going for a rustic aesthetic with chunkier, untreated air-dried or reclaimed timbers, a smoother, more modern look, or even a mixture of both, you can match it to your style. Types of oak beam on offer:

Sustainable and full of character, these beams are ideal for a project that requires a more rustic look.

Excellent for precision projects, as the air drying process removes much of the natural shrinking that you find in Oak Beams.

Designed to give the appearance of a solid beam where one might be too heavy or to conceal unclean finishes.

This style of oak beam is intentionally fabricated for larger framing projects, the construction of new buildings or structural add ons.
