Faux wood beams are manufactured from a High Density Urethane (HDU) foam polymer that is similar in density to White Pine. HDU can be cut, sawed, shaped, routed, nailed, glued and screwed just like wood, but unlike wood it’s much lighter and it won’t crack, flake, blister or warp while also being impervious to moisture. Faux wood beams made of HDU provide a maintenance free experience that’s suitable for both interior and exterior applications.
HDU products are also environmentally friendly. For every piece of HDU millwork purchased there is one less strain put on the world’s natural forest resources.
