Northbeam is a BRANZ-appraised range of structural beams, square posts and joists from Northpine – including large dimension beams, treated H1.2 through to H5 and up to 7.2 metres in length.
These high value products 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 of the Northbeam range, which is processed from kiln-dried timber carefully selected to ensure it complies with AS/NZS 1748 or NZS 3631.
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. The Northbeam range is sold via timber and building supply merchants to clients in the upper North Island.
