A common question we are asked is " Why is this beam so much more than your 8ft beams". The reason for the cost difference is the beams weight, construction method and cost to ship. This beam weighs 180 lbs vs 42lbs for our 8ft beams. Because we have a longer span between the beam legs the beam must be much stronger and a different construction method and additional materials are used. The weight capacity also increases to 350 lbs. Because of the length of the beam it must be shipped with a freight carrier as opposed to FedEx or UPS and this substantially increases the cost to ship. It is shipped in a large wooden crate to eliminate damage.
12ft suede balance beam with raised metal legs. The work surface is 4 in. wide and the beam is available in fixed heights of 12", 18", 24" and an adjustable height 30" Leg. The adjustable 30" leg adjusts from 15" up to 30" in 3" increments.
Beam height is measured from the top of the beam to the floor.
The beam is made using cross grain laminated wood construction. This gives the beam its strength and prevents warping or twisting. No center support is needed. The core is planed and sanded to the competition oval beam shape. Our beams are built as close as possible to competition beams for a realistic training experience. This includes the padding, covering, and shape.
The padding is closed cell polyethylene foam. The same padding that is used on competition beams. It is covered with heavy-grade synthetic suede material. The material is durable and easy to clean. The work surface is 4 in. wide.
The support braces for the 12" beam legs are 18" wide and all other beam leg heights are 24" wide. They are made of 12 gauge structural steel with rubber end caps to protect the flooring beneath. This will make a great practice beam.
