BEAMS AND RIBS

The beams and ribs are one of the best selling wood products. They are often used in construction, roofing, and flooring. They are used for building pre-manufactured homes, to support shutters, and are used as pillars, etc. The type of wood used is pine, fir or spruce.

Beam types:

Clean beams and ribs (highest quality): manufactured from old trees, which makes them more resistant throughout time and all weather conditions. They are used mainly in roofing, sheds, awnings and more.

Anti-stain treated beams and ribs: manufactured from high quality timber and bathed in anti-stain chemicals that are later absorbed by the wood. With this type of treatment the wood is protected against fungi, mold, and insects such as termites.

Dried beams and ribs: beams and ribs are dried in a special drying-room until they reach moisture levels between 14% and 18%. Drying beams and ribs under 14% is not recommended because of potential cracking. Dried beams and ribs are perfect for transporting in shipping containers, they have longer lifespans, and are protected from insects.

Framework beams and ribs: used mainly in construction for framework or shuttering.
