Each order will take 2-3 weeks to source the wood, engrave and despatch.
You can installed directly onto a wall via a long wooden hanging bracket allowing the beam to hook onto this. The beauty of this hanging method is this disperses the weight of the mantle across the whole length of the bracket and not on 2 small hooks, pins or screws.
You can place the bracket against any wall type, from plaster board to brick or stone wall. Just place the beam bracket level against the wall and choose and drill your bracket to the wall.
The front face will be 20cm / 7 to 8 inches in height, this is the face where any engraving will appear, with the option of being smaller or larger.
Depth will be 9 – 10cm / 3.5 – 4 inches deep. This can be up to 5 inches deep on request.
Length can be a preset option in increments of a foot. Or you can choose the exact length by choosing the beam length closest to your requirement as below, and them message me the length you wish to have.
Beams up to 25% larger than an option such as 4 foot 3 inches you select the 4 foot option. A 4 foot 4 inches beam and above you select the next option above being 5 foot. Any first clarification regarding this please get in touch.
