Post & Beam and Oak Frame Buildings


  • A tried and tested modular system that can be expanding to match any size or shape.
  • This unique timber to timber connection is designed for very high strength and easy installation.
  • The Solidlox system (whether softwood, ie Douglas fir, or green oak) uses the traditional mortice and tenon jointing system which is very strong. Oak framed garages and building are probably the strongest timber framed buildings available and have stood the test of time for centuries.
  • The Beamlock connection uses a combination of high tensile stainless steel (grade304L) and aluminium components, which are very durable and can easily achieve a life of up to 30 years when subject to external exposure.

Oak Framed Buildings

There are 2 possible methods of constructing a "framed building", the simplest just uses a simple framework to which cladding is nailed, whereas the second (and by far the most impressive) is to use the post and beam method - this uses very heavy posts and beams to form the skeleton of the stucture (these elements are usually left exposed) and then the gaps are infilled with various sorts of claddings to suit. The Solidlox system can use a variety of timber from Dougles fir to green oak for the post and beam frame, as well as a variety of claddings as well - oak, larch, cedar, pressure treated softwood featheredge, and more!

Visit our showground

We have an example of a Beamlock garage on display in our showground, so come and see just how impressive it really is. The Solidlox system looks very similar but uses mortice and tenon joints, ie traditional build method as can be seen in many oak framed buildings, not only this but it is a much more flexible system and can be made to any shape or size without a problem.

Easy installation

We cannot stress enough how easy these buildings are to construct, if it is a single storey softwood post and beam garage or a green oak building with room above, they are simplicity themselves. Whether you choose our installation service or choose to build yourself, you can be sure that it will be a very quick and easy process - all joints are pre-fitted at the factory for a trouble free installation.
