Where to Use

Hyne Timber Beam 15 is suitable for indoor and outdoor, above ground applications in Australia.

The renowned natural strength of timber is enhanced with our glue laminating process, ensuring Beam 15 is comparatively lightweight and ideal for long span / high load applications. Beam 15 is ideal for lintels over large window and door openings, garage openings or roof beams where spans over large spaces are dictated by design.

Readily available in a range of the most commonly specified sizes and lengths, Beam 15 is versatile and more practical to install than steel.
