Fixing Your Floating Beam
The main method for fixing a floating beam, is via a steel rod bracket that slides into a pre-machined hole in the rear of the beam. It requires a small amount of DIY skills and tools, PLEASE BE AWARE , THE BRACKETS ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS THE WALL THEY ARE FIXED TOO, IF IN DOUBT CONSULT A BUILDER/CARPENTER TO INSTALL FOR YOU.
As a guide for people we recommend that a beam at 6×6 and 5ft long is the max weight for a floating beam, using the conventional hafele floating bracket ( pictured below).
There is an alternative to this in the form of steel threaded rod, this is fixed into the wall by very strong epoxy resins, and take weights greater than the generic floating brackets, please see image below for example.
Please feel free to ask us for advice on this when calling or emailing to order your beam. 01733 840968.
