Can beams handle heat from installing recessed light in the faux beam? Or will it be a fire hazard?

Asked by CHRENOVATOR May 24, 2018

Answers

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.

Can you Oder a 10 x 12 19-20’ length?

Asked by Colleen March 12, 2018

Answer

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.

What are the inside dimensions?

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.

can this be stained to match with other items in the house ?

Asked by AK December 1, 2017

Answers

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.

Can these be installed on a mobile home ceiling?

Asked by Chava November 2, 2017

Answers

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.

Which side is the width?

Asked by Jennifer September 22, 2017

Answer

The side which is 7 3/4 inches is the width, so it's the longer side of the rectangle.

Can the beam be used outdoors either as is or by applying a protectant?

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.

Answers

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.

The beams were great looking and super realistic. Installation was fairly easy once a method was decided on what to use to cut them. I used a hack saw with a metal cutting blade which made a fine cut into the foam. Once in place I used paintable acrylic caulk to cover any cracks and holes form the screws. I used acrylic paint which I mixed to match the beam color. I am extremely pleased with the product and finished results. I would recommend these beams for a high end look.

I love the old look, you can't tell they are fake unless you are told. Beams are easy to install, me and my husband were able to do it after we watched that 2 min installation presentation from the home depot website :) . They are fragile and hard to deliver because of the size, so you may expect some damage, but returns are easy with home Depot

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This has to be one of the most realistic and finest looking faux beam I have ever seen. This beam not only met but far exceeded my expectations. The wood grain pattern as well as what are shown to be hand tooling marks add to the authentic look of this faux beam. From a distance or up close you would think that you are looking at an aged beam that was hand sculpted and cut to fit. The beam is finished on three sides along with both ends. It is very light and extremely easy to work with. In order to cut the beam all you need is a hand saw or an electric saw. Either will cut through the foam with ease. I suggest using a rasp or file to smooth out your cut ends. In order to hang the beam you will need to use small cleats, cut to an approximate length of five and three quarter inches. After you attach them to the ceiling you simply place the faux beam over the cleats and secure them with screws. Installation is simple and before you know it you will have newly added character to the room of your choice.

I ordered two of these for a 27 foot long room to be mounted on the cathedral ceiling. My only beef was with shipping, although they were packed together one of them was cracked about 2 feet from one end. I never complained because I needed to cut them both to size anyway. I love the way it turned out, very easy to install. The hardest part was trying to make the fans look like they were suspended from the beam(they are hanging off of 2x4s attached to the ceiling.) Touching up spots on the beam is very easy. I pieced them together in the center and caulked the small gap with brown caulk. Haven't decided yet if I'm going to use the rubber strapping they sell to cover the seam. Very pleased with this product. Very realistic, easy to work with.

7-3/4 in. x 6-1/8 in. x 14 ft. 9 in. Faux Wood Beam This is a great product to give any room in your house that heavy beam construction look. The beam is made out of foam so it is very light. Thus it can be attached to any wall or ceiling. The inside is hollow so you can use pieces of wood to mount it to the wall. The ends of the beam are finished. In my case I opted to do a 45 degree angle on the ends as shown in the picture. The beam took the Acrylic paint well and it turned out really nice for my mantel. I love the hollow inside because I run my TV wires through the beam over to the neighboring shelving where all the equipment is. This is a great product.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
So you never realize how long 14+ft. is until you have the box sitting in your hallway, because it's the only long enough space to temporarily hold it, until you can install it. Case in point w/ attached pic. They packaged it pretty well, with lots of warning signs to the shippers (also see 2 pics); however I was kind of surprised that they did not house it in any form of bubble wrap--only shrink wrapped it, which was very thin & [too] easy to poke thru. That being said, I received it without any damage to it, so am happy. I did not include a pic. of the outside because I felt the online picture really captured it pretty accurately. It has enough varying tones of brown in it, that it can go with just about any decor, or other dark to medium wood finishes without clashing. It is accurate with the overall dimensions; however, and this is a BIG however, the open cavity inside it is misleading. As you will see by the one picture, there is a "bar" running across ea. end, within the cavity space. This is about a foot in, and is on BOTH sides. If you are planning on covering any 2x4's with it; which you need to be able to, to have something to mount it to, then you have to work around those separators. Using separate, smaller 2x4's at ea. end, and then a larger (about 12ft.), in the middle will work. I had a non-load-bearing wall that I took out, which I was planning on covering the opening with this faux beam. I will still do it, but will have to reconfigure the remaining 2x4's in order to work around these embedded bars. Another option might be for me to cut away at those bars, in order to fit a full length 2x4; however, I'm not sure I want to do that, as I don't know if it will affect the integrity/strength of the piece. If this review site will allow me, I will add a pic. later, once I've installed it, but I didn't want to wait any longer to get in my overall review.

This is the finest faux beam I have used. No repeat pattern and finished ends. It is a hollow center foam and very easy to install. It is light but the imprint is a perfect match for a real beam (which was the original source of the pattern). I will special note the great packaging for this beam - It was shipped by truck and hand delivered with care. It was boxed on a triple wall box reinforced with two eight foot 2x4's to prevent bends and breakage. I was super impressed with the packaging care. See photos for packaging.
