Protect and Preserve your timber
Coating timber beams is essential to the longevity and aesthetics of a project. Here at Vicbeam, we specialise in oil staining your timber for protective finishes from humidity and UV light. This includes direct exposure to air conditioning, moisture or hot elements (eg. oven). Therefore, we highly suggest applying protecting coating for jobs where timber will be exposed.
The oil based coating penetrates the timber to provide weathering resistance while leaving the grain semi-exposed. This protective coating should be renewed annually for adeqate protection of timber.
Vicbeam often applies coatings to our glulam beams before they leave the factory. Architects and builders love this, because it’s a quicker and easier solution than on site and results in time and labour savings to the client.
We find that glulam beams can be out in the weather for a number of weeks before being covered. By applying a protective coat prior to delivery, the glulam beams are better protected from scuffs and inclement weather. We have also found that as a cost saving measure on site, our pre-coated beams are often an essential component of an easy install system. We wrap the beams well so that they maintain their aesthetic appearance.
Instead of needing scaffolding, painting or welding, we can supply beams that only require a carpenter to install, saving you and your client time and money.
Vicbeam has experience with a number of coating systems working with suppliers Cutek, Intergrain, Osmo, Synteko, Sikkens and Quantum for our coating needs. However, if you have a particular coating preference, we are open to explore that as well.
