5-7/8 in. x 7-7/8 in. x 13 ft. Unfinished Modern Faux Wood Beam

Product Overview

Unfinished high density polyurethane Modern Style Wood Faux beams are cast from the molds of genuine reclaimed wooden barn beams with exacting realism. American Pro Decor modern beams not only convey the smooth, milled raised grain appearance of the wood beams that were produced by large circular saws at the mills, they are indistinguishable from the originals after which they have been manufactured. Ideally suited for transforming ordinary houses, stores and restaurants into extraordinary, charming country style homes, shops, and inns. American Pro Decor Unfinished Modern Wood Faux Beams are lightweight, sturdy, and easy to install on virtually any type of surface by means of affixing them via countersunk nails or screws to nailing blocks or wood planks. To heighten the overall authenticity of an installation, American Pro Decor offers optional rubber beam strapping which perfectly replicate the look of the heavy, forged wrought iron fastening hardware used to secure and affix the beams of yesteryear in place. Unfinished beams are perfectly to paint or stain to achieve your desired finish. Use a high-quality latex oil base paint. If staining, use a solid deck Gel Stain which comes in a variety of colors. Use a brush or Sponge for better results.

Questions & Answers

Do they fit seamlessly together for a solid looking center beam?

Asked by Deb February 8, 2021
1
Answer

Thanks for your inquiry. Our modern faux beams might not exactly match. However, if you use our Unfinished faux beams, it is best to join them, cover the seams the gaps with caulk, sand it then finish with your desired color either by using Gel Stain or water base stain.

If installing outdoors, what product do I use to color and protect them?

Answers

Thanks for your inquiry. For Exterior applications it is recommended to use "UV" protecting clear coat. We suggest "Zar" oil based exterior polyurethane. Also it is recommended to us a high quality construction adhesive along with non corrosive screws or non corrosive nails.

Will the inside dimensions of the 5-7/8 in. beam fit over a 2x4 which is 3-1/2 in. ?

Asked by Charlie October 17, 2019
1
Answer

Thanks for your inquiry. Inner opening dimension (approximated) 2-7/8 in. high x 3-1/2 in. width. Based on this information, there should be no problem.

Would a 2x2 fit inside the beam?

Asked by customer July 10, 2019
1
Answer

Thanks for your inquiry. No, it will not fit because of the height. The inner height ranges from 1-1/4" to 1-1/2" it depends on the cooling process of the foam when it dries. The inner interior is like a "U" shape.

What if I need to install light fixtures or ceiling fan?

Asked by Kim May 9, 2018
1
Answer

Thanks for your inquiry. A light fixture can be mounted as long as it doesn't generate heat such as an LED fixture. The material is high density polyurethane and hollow. It is a 3 sided "U Style" beam. Regarding a ceiling fan, make sure the ceiling fan is fastened properly to the ceiling. The beam by itself will not hold the fan since it made from a Polyurethane foam.

How can I install this on a cathedral ceiling?

Asked by VIC928 March 25, 2018
1
Answer

Thanks for your inquiry. First you need to measure the internal width of the beam. Secondly, cut two pieces of wood blocks to fit the internal dimension of the beam. Third, predrill holes for screws. Fourth, use long screws to go through the double wood blocks, through the plaster or sheetrock. The wood blocks will be installed evenly under the Cathedral ceiling. Make sure the screws go through the wood structure of the house. Fifth, repeat fourth steps every 3 to 5 feet. Sixth, dry fit the beam to the wood blocks and use long screw to fasten the beam. Fill screw heads with colored caulk or wood filler. By following this steps, it won't be necessary to cut the top edge of the beam to match the pitch of the ceiling.

The beams stained very well with gel stain. They look just like hand hewn beams. Love the look. They are light to handle and will bend a little to go over uneven old ceilings.

This was perfect and just as described! Easy to install. We had to use liquid nails to put it up due to nothing to drill into and it worked great!

Light weight/easy to work with
The beam arrived well packaged and ahead of the scheduled day. Delivery called about an hour before arriving. Refreshing customer service. As for the beam itself, once unpackage I noticed it had a curve of about 3 inches and that concerned me....but the install proved that it had the flexibility to straighten. Trimming it was no problem and a hack saw worked very well. We painted the beam rather than staining and that proved to be no problem. Seems expensive..... but when you are holding it over your head to install on the ceiling, you'll be glad it isn't a full, heavy wooden beam. Looks very real.

Great product that's easy to work with, but the installer needs to take special care when measuring and installing beams because beam dimensions are not uniform throughout due to their "rustic" appearance, so cuts where beams connect to make extended lengths must be made so beam dimensions coincide while still allowing for sufficient overall length.
