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 a heavy grade synthetic suede material. The material is durable and easy to clean. The work surface is 4 in. wide and the beam is 7 in high.
The support braces are 12 in. wide and made of steel. The beam core is pre-drilled for our metal beam legs which can be added at a later date. This will make a great practice beam.

Built to provide long-lasting stability, this eight-foot long, low profile balance beam from the Beam Store offers a strong wood core with competition grade padding and a sturdy synthetic cover to hold up to rigorous use. Thanks to its core of cross grain laminated wood, the beam does not require a center support and will not warp or twist. This enables users to slide a cushioning mat under the beam for safety. The beam features a competition-grade, rubber padded top that is covered with heavy synthetic suede material. This durable and easy to clean covering offers traction for a stable grip. Mimicking the shape, feel, and dimensions of competition beams, the work surface measures four inches wide with rounded competition shaped sides, making it easier to transition from the training beam to a competition beam. The beam itself measures five inches high and the support braces measure two inches high by 12 inches wide for stability. The bottom of the support braces have felt padding to protect the flooring beneath. Built to make high-quality practice equipment affordable, this beam is a great option for home or gym practice use.
