  • Protecting your head from low beams

    HI all. Hope someone can help here. I have scanned the web but can't find what I want.

    Does anyone know any specialist companies that provide decent looking padding for low wooden beams. If my partner smashes their head against this beam many more times I may be claiming on the life insurance. Not something I want to do.

    It's just one beam but I can see it happening again and again. I can't find anyone that does this kind of stuff. I don't just want to cover it in something ugly but want to do a nice job. So if there are any companies that specialise in this that would be great.

    Many thanks

    where is the beam, is it in the main of the house or is it in the rafters?

      HAve you contacted any local builders for tips? Probably would only be a small job, but I can see one of their assistants happy to do so for a little income.

        It's in the main house.

        I was wondering if anyone knew of any companies that fitted, bespoke or otherwise something to cover beams in specific areas with padding. I see lots of padding companies for columns but not for beams and most of the coverings look cheap and nasty i.e. white foam.

          Hi, I am new here so hello!

          I don't know if you found your answer but most building companies should be able ot offer a number of solutions, it is just whether they are asthetically pleasing! For instance foam/sponge.

          IT depends on size of beam and location really. But if someone rang my company asking this kinf of question we would come out and provide a free quote so I would try a local builder/contractor.

            What kind of material and colour were you thinking Anthony? I'm racking my head trying to think of what you would put on it that would look well.

              I don't mean to laugh but you just reminded me of Lee Evans! On a more serious note, you should be able to get one of those column padding companies to create a bespoke piece of foam for the beam, surely? Have you rung up and asked?

                  Any padding would make the beam even lower.
