Wood Effect Concrete Beams
To complete the set-up of your fireplace mantle and traditionally frame your stove, you will want to install a wood beam across the top of your fireplace. However, in order to abide by current regulations, wood beams need to be a certain distance from your stove, which may be unachievable in the space you have available. That’s why Topstak supplies false fireplace beams, which are made from non-combustible reinforced concrete. Our wood effect concrete beams have all the knots and features of real wood, without the potential high hazard risk that comes with placing real wood next to your stove.
For a safe yet attractive fireplace mantle, we always recommend our wood effect concrete beams.
Benefits of a False Fireplace Beam
The challenge that usually arises when fitting a fireplace beam is installing it at a suitable distance from the stove as to avoid heat damage. With a standard wood beam, there would need to be precautions put in place to ensure it had minimal heat impact and was a suitable distance away from the stove and flue pipe. However, thanks to Topstak’s range of wood effect concrete beams, your fireplace beam can be placed as close to your stove as you would like, without compromising the quality of the beam or the safety of your stove. Our concrete fireplace mantles are non-combustible, minimising risk while still supplying you with that rustic wood appearance.
