Simulated Wood Structural Members
Use this free downloadable CSI 3-part specification to specify simulated wood structural members – beams, trusses, and headers by Barron Designs.
The use of simulated wood beams and headers in commercial construction projects is a growing trend. The reason for this is that they offer many benefits to builders, architects, and developers.
Simulated wood beams are a great alternative to traditional steel or concrete beams. They are lightweight, easy to install, and can be used in almost any type of building from a skyscraper down to a small cottage.
One of the biggest benefits of using simulated wood beams in a commercial construction project is the fact that they are much less expensive than regular steel or concrete beams. This means that you will have more money left over at the end of the project which can be used on other things like more equipment or materials needed for your next project.
Simulated wood beams are also very durable so they do not need any maintenance. Made from high-density polyurethane (HDPE) and they look just like real wood, but they don’t require any maintenance or upkeep. They are resistant to insects and rot, which means you won’t have to worry about those pesky critters getting into your structure! Plus, these beams are lightweight and easy to install – if you’ve ever installed real wood beams before then this should be a breeze!
