Beams and shelves may be up to ½” smaller due to machining and sanding. Typically beams are approximately 1/4″ smaller than their original size.

Each order comes with fitting instructions. You can also visit our blog where you can find detailed instructions on how to fit a floating shelf using Hafele concealed shelf supports. If you need any further advice please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We do offer an express service for £20.00 + vat per item. We will dispatch your order within 2 working days to meet your delivery deadline. During very busy periods this service may not be available.

You will not need to apply any additional finish to your beam straight away. Your beam may dull down slightly with age. To keep your beam looking new you can apply a small amount of wax polish. 400ml tins can be purchased from our online shop.

Your beam may already have surface cracks which are to be expected as oak is a natural product. Once installed in a central heated house further cracks may develop which is considered completely normal and part of the charm. We recommend storing your beam for 2 weeks in your house prior to installation. If installing above a wood burning stove we recommend gradually increasing the temperature slowly over a period of 2 weeks or so.

Unless otherwise stated we drill the holes to accept the concealed brackets in the largest face. For example a 6”x4” beam will have the holes machined in a 6” side. We can of course machine the holes in the smaller side. Just add a note in the checkout confirming your requirements.

It is possible to fit your beam to a plasterboard wall if you can locate the timber uprights however it is best to fit your beam to a brick or breeze block wall. If this isn’t possible, we would recommend a fascia beam no larger than 6″x3″. Plasterboard screws can be used in conjunction with keyhole brackets machined into the back of the beam.
