Your best bet is to look up the material(Polystyrene?) to see if it is fire/heat resistant. Or better yet, go with an LED recessed light. They generally run a lot cooler.
I'm fairly sure that you can't order custom lengths. You could always butt 2 of them together like I did. Worked out much cheaper than another site that would do custom legnths.
The inside is 6". I had to use 2x6 to install the beams. They look very real when installed. I'm very happy with my purchase. They were very easy to install.
Yes this beam can be stained, however you will need to order it unfinished. If you don't the beam comes pre-finished and you will not be able to match the rest of the items in your house.
I don't see any reason why these faux beams couldn't be installed on a mobile home ceiling. As long as you can securely install wood cleats to the ceiling you will have no problems using these in a mobile home.
The side which is 7 3/4 inches is the width, so it's the longer side of the rectangle.
Yes, I installed mine over a year ago outside in a California room. Covered Patio in my backyard. No protectant and looks the same the day I installed it. 3 beams installed in northern CA.
If you secure your kleets (bracing) to the studs and then properly anchor the beam to the kleets you will provide more than enough support for the faux beam. In doing this you will be able to put picture frames, small statues or figurines as well as small potted plants. Just keep in mind the dimensions of the beam so you aren't disappointed with what items you want to put on your mantle.
