Are SUPAWOOD Beams Structural?

SUPAWOOD products are designed as decorative linings systems. Our fixings are engineered for products to be secured to wall or ceiling framing as lightweight, decorative, or acoustic features to a space.  

SUPAWOOD products are therefore unsuitable as free-standing structures or structural supports. Our MAXIBEAM and ALUCLICK products cannot be used as: 

  1. Load bearing beams or as a main bearer 
  2. As a structural member in a building 
  3. As a free-standing screen
  4. For cantilevering spans greater than 1200mm for MAXIBEAMS or 1500mm for ALUCLICK
  5. As a wall joinery item, such as floating shelving
