About Polyurethane Wood

The decorative beams, mantels, panels and other faux wood products that we offer are all made from Polyurethane - a unique material which substitutes for fiberglass, rubber, silicone, etc. as well as many other natural and synthetic materials, including wood, stone and brick.

Polyurethane is known for it’s high performance characteristics, reasonable price, environmental compliance, and manufacturing efficiency.

A Trusted Material

Polyurethane is used in a variety of household and commercial products, including footwear, athletic equipment, furniture, automotive products, theme parks and decorative building/renovation products.

Since the introduction of polyurethane architectural features nearly thirty years ago, polyurethane product use has increased dramatically.

The secret of polyurethane’s many durability benefits is its closed cell structure, which makes it very stable and keeps moisture from migrating behind coatings. Moisture migration causes serious problems in wood building products (such as wood beams or molding), promoting paint failure and rot.

Benefits of Polyurethane:

  • Wear & abrasion resistant to a variety of interior living and exterior weather conditions including salt water exposure
  • Will not rot - impervious to insects and water
  • Realistic – using molds, polyurethane wood products take on the aesthetics of real wood.
  • Green & Environmentally Smart – polyurethane material contains no atmosphere-damaging chlorofluorocarbons. By choosing faux wood, you are preserving live trees. In addition, all of the products are manufactured in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
  • Lightweight – easy to handle & reduces possible load bearing issues (always check local building codes)
  • Easy to install – no professional carpenter or special tools needed
  • Cost-effective – polyurethane wood costs significantly less than its real counterpart.

High density polyurethane material:

  • Is non toxic - we do not use formaldehyde in the manufacturing process
  • Is standard Class B Construction/Fire rated Material
  • Does not omit toxic gasses or vapors
  • Uses water-based stains and finishes
  • Protects trees from being cut down

Another environment plus - the sophisticated manufacturing machinery used to make our products prevents waste material. Browse through the full inventory of products available at FauxWoodBeams, each one made to be virtually worry and maintenance-free!
