Product Overview

The prefinished STB 20 is part of the Superior Sandblasted Faux Wood Beam Line. Superior Building Supplies sandblasted beams have a beautifully elegant raised grain running throughout the beam. The Superior Sandblasted faux wood beams are molded from a carefully sculpted real wood beam. Because each beam is molded from real wood, there are no repeat patterns within it. 1000's of customers can't be wrong, Superior faux beams are a beautiful addition to any project. The STB 20 is 8" wide x 6" high x 16' long. These beams are light weight and can easily be installed with just 2 people. Every STB 20 faux wood beam is hand finished with an interior grade, multi-tone rich walnut stain. Our Superior Faux beams can be used outdoors. We recommend purchasing unfinished beams and painting or staining them in an exterior grade product. Don't see the size you want? Contact Home Depot today.

Customer Questions & Answers

Advice needed: Can it be used as a structure beam?

I am going to use 2"x7"x14' or or 2 of 2"x9"x14' wood cross 13' room as support bean, but I want to have smaller beam so it will not drop down too much anything less than 9" wide. This faux been is smalller in width. But not sure if is strong for the purpose. If not, any alternative suggestion is appreciated.

Can this be used for support?

Is this appropriate for use as a functional, weight-bearing vertical support column? Or is it strictly decorative?
Asked by: Patricia
No, the beams are 100% decorative and can not be used as a weight-bearing product. The beams can be used to cover a supporting beam.

Can this beam be split lengthwise into 2 beams that are 4 in x 6 in x 16ft?

I already asked this question but I stated 4' x 6" rather than 4" x 6" x 16'. From your response, I know that they can be cut into 4' beams, BUT can they be cut in half the entire length?
Asked by: Lee1205
It's unclear to me. The picture shows a 4-sided beam, but the video shows 3 sides. The answer from the manufacturer (above) also gives conflicting info; first he says yes, then says it can be split into 2 L-shaped beams. I think the answer is no, it is a U-shaped beam that can't be ripped down the middle to give 2 similar beams.

do they a beam 24 ft long

Asked by: mike
Thank you for your question. The STB 20 is part of our QuickShip program and is only available in the 16' lengths. Our faux beams can be extended in two different ways. The first and easiest method is by using one of our faux iron straps. The S 02 is normally recommended to be paired with the STB 20. The S02 looks just like steel but is made from a flexible material that allows it to be custom fitted around the beam. If you would prefer to install the beams without the faux strap, you can do so, but it is a little more work. First we recommend purchasing unfinished beams. Join the beams together with a standard butt joint. There will be a small gap where the beams join. In the small gap, apply a small amount of wood filler and make some wood grain markings with a fork or knife. Once the wood filler is completely dry, prime the entire beam. After the primer has dried we recommend using a semi-solid deck stain to create the finished effect.

STB 20 - 8 in. x 6 in. x 16 ft. Faux Wood Beam is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was for looks only. I needed a real... This was for looks only. I needed a real support beam not styrofoam and a piece of styrofoam for $300 is absurd. The description said it would not bend or warp or break. It was broken when I received it and was extremely flimsy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real room changer. This product is everything that was claimed in the description. It looks great up and totally changes the look of the room which is what we wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value, treat it nicely! Got it installed, and it looks great! My cautions are only that the stain is a little darker than in the item's picture, and it is very easy to rub the stain off. Just resting it on the couch and pulling it slightly seemed to rub off the stain to expose the poly-styrofoam-like material underneath. Overall though, it's really light, easy to cut, fairly easy to install with 2 people (would have been super nice to include mounting blocks) and I'm very happy with the end result. Google "how to install a faux wood beam" before installing if you haven't done this before. It's do-able for a first-timer, but just no there are no instructions that come with this item. They expect you know what you're doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like the real thing. .I love the beam. It was cut into 4 equal sections of 4 feet each and spaced equally across my vaulted living room ceiling. Not too much wood, just the right look. It did have to be cut by hand rather than by using a miter box/saw as my ceiling pitch was greater than a 45 degree angle. I think it's a little pricey since it's not really wood, but it's much easier to install. Glue and a few finishing nails did the job. No need to tie into the ceiling joices. It's a nice finishing touch to an otherwise plain white vaulted ceiling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Took out a wall between the kitchen and dining room. Used the beam to hide gap in the ceiling, it covered the space well and looks very realistic. It is also strong and does not break easily, however it can be broken. used a jig saw with a fine blade to cut it and file for minor adjustments. I did have some of the color of the beam rub off-doesn't go very deep in the foam. Still a good product and would recommend it.
