The name already suggests that air dried oak beams have been dried by wind. This natural drying process means that most of the warping has gone from the wood. A pleasant feature if you want to use these beams to build an outbuilding, a barn, storage building or other construction. The air dried oak beams in our collection are at least five years old, and there are also special ones that are 25 years old. Many of these beams have never been used and are therefore free of metal, traces of use or processing. Compared to old oak beams, air dried oak beams are therefore the more ‘sleek’ alternative. Nevertheless, air dried oak beams have a natural ageing that gives them that wonderful look.
Would you rather have the original wood colour or do you have other preferences, this can be achieved by a treatment of your choice. Combined with the wide variety of sizes in our collection, you will always find the right beams for your project.
