Which side are the concealed bracket holes positioned?
All dimensions through out the site relate to the height x depth. Unless otherwise stated we drill the holes to accept the concealed brackets in the largest face. For example a 6”x5” 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.

How accurate are the dimensions?
Beams and shelves may be up to ½” smaller due to machining and sanding. Typically beams are approximately 1/2″ smaller than their original size.

How do I fit my beam or shelf using the concealed brackets supplied?
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.

How do I keep my oak beam looking at it’s best?
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.

Will my beam crack once it’s installed?
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.

Can I fit my beam to a plasterboard wall?
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″x1.5″. Plasterboard screws can be used in conjunction with keyhole brackets machined into the back of the beam.
