Premium Canadian Fir & Cedar Timber
Do you want the traditional timber frame look..
and be able to do it yourself?
Box beams are an alternative for any type of project, be it residential, commercial or otherwise.
They can also be used as cladding for any existing posts or beams. Box beams are very universal and have the same look, texture and feel as the full timber frames.
Polyurethane glue is used on the joints in conjunction with baffles and screws to ensure a strong weather resistant bond that has minimal twisting, cupping and cracking.
All custom stains and finish textures we offer also apply to our box beams.
Locking miters create tight and seamless joints for a realistic solid timber look.
We mill our stock on site from premium Canadian Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar, then we kiln dry the planks for increased stability after assembly and installation.
Polyurethane glue is used to ensure strong weather-resistant bonds in all joinery.
Baffles are glued and screwed with even spacing along the interior of each beam to increase strength and minimize twisting, cupping and cracking.
Optionally supplied cleats make installation easy and quick for seasoned professionals and DIYers alike.
Uninterrupted lengths up to 30 are available, or for longer lengths (unlimited), add a scarf joint for an authentic timber framed look.
Optional end-grain caps can be added for a solid timber look on exposed box beam ends - great for mantels and large floating shelves.
