The Frosted Oak Mantel Beam is finished with a small rounded edge then sanded off to give a smooth feel.
We take pride in carving all of our solid oak mantels so each beam has a different shape when finished.
This beam has a slight grey tint with a light mahogany wax to give it a touch of colour and warmth.
We have a large selection of oak fireplace beams and mantels suitable for any fireplace, whether it’s natural or cleaned, curved or straight. These fireplace beams will create a magnificent feature in any room.
How we work
The oak beams are initially rough sawn and we loose a small amount of this oak after machining to give a smoother and more pleasing appearance.
We can operate to fine tolerances, although oak fireplace beams tend to be machined within +/- 10mm.
Should you wish to specify exact dimensions, we would do our best accommodate your request.
There are set stock sizes although this does not mean you are restricted to these sizes. We are able to machine your oak fireplace beam to any size and would try to keep any waste to a minimum.
European Oak’s heartwood is light tan to biscuit coloured, usually straight grained and contain various sized knots.
Due to the natural drying process of Air Dried Oak, it will contain surface checking, splits.
We aim to place the worst face to the wall and the best 2 sides on show.
3-5 years air dried sustainable oak from FSC and PEFC certified managed forests.
The shelves are supplied with a set of heavy concealed floating shelf brackets capable of holding up to 40kg and are suitable for installing into solid brick- block. Stud walls would need to be checked for centres of the studs as these brackets are not for direct installation into plasterboard only.
All of our shelves are machined on the reverse to accept the supports and a spot of silicon is all that is required to fix the shelf on once dry fitted.
Each order comes with instructions and the shelves are suitable for all levels of DIY enthusiasts.
