Frequently Asked Questions about Oak Timber Beams
How can Planed Oak Timber Beams be cleaned?
They can be cleaned via planing, sanding, or blasting, if desired. You may also notice a blue stain across the surface, simply caused by a natural reaction between the oak and the steel tooling used to shape it. These can also be sanded off easily.
How well can the beams be finished?
In general, Oak finishes well from the planer or moulding machine although in some cases a reduction of cutting angle to 20° is preferable. The wood can be stained, polished, waxed, and glued satisfactorily, takes nails and screws well, except near edges, when the wood should be pre-bored, and takes liming and fuming treatments well.
What thicknesses do our Oak beams come in?
We stock a number of standard thicknesses in a variety of lengths, mainly square sections, 150mm, 200mm, 250mm, 300mm, 350mm, and even 400mm beams, ranging from 3mtrs to 7mtrs in length.
