Original Press Release:

Outwater Introduces its Faux Wood Beams

Now one can easily and economically recreate the rustic look afforded by authentic, aged, hand hewn oak beams with Outwater’s [Outwater Plastics Industries, Inc. + Architectural Products by Outwater, LLC] water based finished and unfinished high density polyurethane Faux Wood Beams.

Ideally suited for transforming ordinary houses, stores and restaurants into extraordinary, charming country style homes, shops and inns, Outwater’s hollowed Faux Wood Beams are not only lightweight and sturdy, they are easy to install on virtually any type of surface by means of affixing them via countersunk nails or screws to nailing blocks or wood planks, which serve both as a point of attachment as well as an installation guide or template.

Stocked in four different collections (Box Beam, Contemporary, Log Beam and Rustic) in eleven assorted styles (Classic Raised Grain, New World, Vintage, Mesa, Milled, Modern, Rough Sawn, Colonial and Heritage Log, Hand Hewn, Old World, Tahoe and Vintage), Outwater’s Faux Wood Beams are indistinguishable from the genuine wood beams after which they have been patterned.  And just like the originals, Outwater’s Faux Wood Beams can be tooled and refinished if necessary still retaining their grain and texture using traditional techniques and tools.

However, unlike their wood counterparts, which are subject to rot and insect infestation, not to mention their overt heft and difficulty in handling, Outwater’s Faux Wood Beams are dimensionally stable as well as impervious to moisture and insects, making them suitable for either indoor or outdoor use.

To heighten the overall authenticity of an installation, Outwater has introduced the following corresponding products:

Outwater’s Rubber Beam Strapping and Polyurethane U-Brackets perfectly replicate the look of the heavy, forged wrought iron fastening hardware used to secure Outwater’s Faux Wood Beams in place.

Outwater’s Faux Wood Corbels will indiscriminately augment the beauty and refinement of Outwater’s Faux Wood Beams and are offered as complementary decorative ornamentation.  Outwater’s Faux Wood Corbels can either be utilized in conjunction with Outwater’s Faux Wood Beams as a corresponding support, or as a standalone ornamental embellishment.

Outwater’s Faux Wood Panels are intended for horizontal or vertical supplemental use with Outwater’s Faux Wood Beams and Faux Wood Corbels.

Outwater also offers Beam Stain for touch ups.
