Product Description

European Oak Beams to buy on line

Oak Beams at iWood Fresh sawn and air dried. Great for construction and landscaping.

Our Oak beams and sleepers are sourced directly from hand picked saw mills in Europe and as such they are of the highest quality. Oak is an extremely versatile material that is resistant to harsh conditions and easily stands up to the test of time. It is a highly dense material that boasts both strength and hardness. As a wood, it has been used since medieval times for building and construction, so whatever you're purpose is, this wood is an excellent choice. Not only can it withstand harsh conditions but it's able to withstand attack from insects and fungus and has a great grain pattern, which makes it ideal for decoration purposes as well as practical use.

What makes our oak so special?

Here at iWood we source only the best materials and our beams are no exception. Whether you're using them purely for decoration or they’re part of the structure of your house, rest assured that our beams are up to the task. If you would like to talk to someone about them or have a question then feel free to get in contact.

What sizes of beams can you supply me with?

We have a wide range of oak beams available. In QPA and QP1 we can supply you with thicknesses between 26 and 300mm, widths between 50 and 300mm and lengths of up to 7.9 meters, so if there's a particular size that you're after then just let us know. Our friendly staff are just a phone call away.

Air dried oak is available on our website up to 350mm section, up to 7m. For larger sizes get in touch and we will check availability.

Air dried oak has dried naturally for between 1 and 3 years, giving the timber a darker, weathered look, featuring the highly-sought-after traditional surface checking and cracking.

Air dried is available in standard sections of 100x100mm, 120x120mm, 150x150mm, 180x180mm, 200x200mm, 250x250mm and feature the lowest price per cubic metre, and we can then cut or plane air dried beams to any dimension for you out of these sections. Please note, sawing or planing will reveal fresh-sawn faces, rather than the air-dried finish.

Please note:

  • It is standard industry practise to supply beams slightly overlength to be cut down on site.
  • Sawn beams can have a tolerance of approximately 5mm. If exact sizes are requires, opt for planed beams.

What grades of beam can you supply?

  • Fresh Sawn (to QPA) - Our highest grade. Suitable for construction.
  • Fresh Sawn Constructional (to QP1) - Our second highest grade. Also suitable for construction.
  • Fresh Sawn Fencing / Sleeper Grade - Suitable for landscaping fence posts and sleepers.
  • Air Dried Constructional Grades - Suitable for construction where reduced movement is required (due to moisture)

The Fencing / Sleeper grade of beam can be used for fence posts. Air dried grades have been dried for a minimum of two years.

Beams are heavy and you need to be able to unload them!

Because a large number of our customers have their own lifting equipment, our delivery vehicles do not have cranes or forklifts, so you will either need to provide your own offloading equipment or have enough people available to manually offload your products. Our drivers, while helpful, are not insured to help manually unload off the trucks.

Oak is an extremely heavy material. Air dried oak weighs approximately 1,100 kg per cubic metre. Fresh sawn oak weighs approximately 1,200 kg per cubic metre (because it has more water in it). Just as an example, a fresh sawn 200mm x 250mm x 5m oak beam weighs approximately 300 kg, or 660 lbs (so getting on for third of a metric tonne).

Please bear unloading in mind when ordering.
