Nowadays the oak beam mantel piece has become a popular fireplace design choice. The splash of real oak character is sometimes all that is needed for a fireplace that blends into a traditional or contemporary room setting. We use locally sourced Essex air dried oak, French oak, and reclaimed oak for our fireplace beams; each with their own unique details and colors to suit your interior designs.
Extreme care must be taken when designing and installing a wood burning fireplace with a wooden beam. A solid oak beam can withstand high temperatures but it is wood and so is combustible. Placed too close to a fire, stove or stove flue pipe, the wood will catch fire. Only employ fireplace fitters who fully understand the potential hazzards of using wooden features too close to a fire, the results can be disastrous
