MAXI BEAM: Lightweight Timber Beams
Timber beams lend long-lasting, natural beauty to various architectural styles. A problem with solid beams, however, is that their weight demands specially engineered structural support. But there’s a way around that. MAXI BEAM, Supawood’s line of lightweight timber beams gives the elegance of natural wood without the challenges of working with solid timber.
If your project is on an extra-large scale, then MAXI BEAM might be just the product you have been looking for. Our ceiling beams offer an extensive range of sizes and shapes, designed to suit your requirements.
The beams are available in 50mm wide slats in standard depths of 147mm, 197mm or 297mm as well as in custom sizes. Shaped, curved and twisted timber beams are also available at Supawood. The MAXI BEAM range is easy to install and work with. Watch our video to see why.
