Oak Beam Suppliers

We import approximately 2,000 cu/ft per week of fresh sawn Oak beam to our Shropshire site in various formats.  The majority is in structural oak beams.

There are a number of grades; they are QPA, QP1, and QP2. There is an attached PDF file which will explain this grade to you. Our standard grade is a QPA/1.

Fresh sawn Oak timber (or green Oak as it is known) is cut directly from felled logs and have a degree of shrinkage. It is ideal for construction uses.

Air Dried Beams  

We hold 5,000 cu/ft of air dried beams in stock and import around 800cuft per week of air dried beams. Our beams as standard are air dried between 2-5 years.

The grade mirrors the green Oak grades as above. Stocks tend to be in square sections and are in multiples of 1m lengths. So 2,3,4,5 and 6m lengths are standard.
