Northbeam is a range of high quality structural timber beams, square posts and joists from Northpine – including large dimension beams, H1.2 and H5 treated timber up to 7.2 metres.
They are generally preferred for use in exposed areas where the natural warmth and beauty of solid wood provides visual impact and unique character to a structure. Framing can be turned into a truly distinctive feature when used to create eye-catching designs for outdoor features such as decks, gazebos, pergolas, walkways and entranceways.
Strength is another key characteristic. Northbeam products are processed from kiln-dried timber carefully selected to ensure it is structurally strong and dimensionally stable.
The result is high quality timber with structural performance competitive with steel or engineered wood products.
Northpine will also consider making ‘one-off’ production runs at its Waipu sawmill.
BRANZ Appraised, the Northbeam range is suitable for commercial and residential projects and is currently sold via timber and building supply merchants to clients in the upper North Island.
