Achieve the look of solid beams without the hassle, with hollow box beams and wood beam wraps.
Box beams or wood beam wraps are a beautiful solution for adding reclaimed wood accents to ceilings and walls, especially if your home or business interiors contain unsightly ductwork or elements you’d rather cover up.
Our box beams and wraps are expertly crafted from reclaimed wood and timber at our mill in Western North Carolina. Beams and wraps are available in four distinct surface textures dictated by how each timber was originally cut and sawn decades or even centuries ago.
What is a Box Beam?
A box beam is a look-alike solid wood beam that’s
- easier to install
- can be hung and doesn’t need to be supported.
A beam wrap can also be called is a hollow wood beam, can also be purposed to wrap-around steel columns or an exposed or unsightly structural element.
Box beams and wraps are often referred to as faux beams, though many faux beams do not use real wood. All our beam wraps and box beams use the same reclaimed wood as our solid beams to ensure the superior quality and aesthetic that reclaimed wood offers.

BOX BEAM AND BEAM WRAP COSTS
Reclaimed wood and superior craftsmanship come with a higher price point. Additionally, the labor associated with creating the hollow box beams from original old-growth wood makes box beams more expensive than solid beams. (we have to be creative in using the inner area) That being said, the cost savings in labor and installation may justify the additional expense in material cost. Because box beams and wraps are much lighter, they are easier to install (and cost less when shipping), overall reducing labor costs and more.
And remember the increase in home value by tastefully covering up ductwork and utility areas with beautiful architectural accents.
