Wood Core Folding Beam Made in USA
Manufacturer: The Beam Store, USA.
Low profile folding balance beam. It is 8 ft long when unfolded. 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 for the look and feel of a regulation beam. The material is durable and easy to clean. It weighs approximately 15 lbs giving it the weight of foam and the durability of real wood construction. It has attached handles that tuck underneath when in use. The work surface is 4 in. wide and has sloping sides. It is 6 in. wide at the bottom and is 3 in. high. The hinge mechanism is made of steel.
The beam can be folded and stored flat underneath a bed, in a closet or easily folded and taken in a car.
This will make a great practice beam.

Out of the Box:
Right out of the box, the beam was really nice. It had a nice suede feeling to it. It was soft to the touch but had a hard sturdy bottom. In weight, it held its own. On the side, are two carry handles making it real was to transport from location to location.Lets not forget the best part, it is purple. My girls love purple.
When opened, there are hinges on the bottom. I felt on a hard wood floor, the hinges did get in the way and made the beam a little wobbly. On carpet the beams were unnoticeable. For me, this was fine as I planned on only letting my girls use the beam on the carpet.
Now to the real test. This beam was top rate. My girls have used it without any issues. In addition to them getting real use of the beam, I have two nephews, yes two babies who once when over decided to crawl and drool all over (sigh). But what can I do. When my girls want to practice and they are up, there is not stopping them. Anyway, my point is the beam is still in perfect condition. I also had some adults come and play. Yes some adults are really young at heart. What I am trying to say, this beam is really well made. We have put it to the test in more ways then one and I am thrilled with the performance.
My only real disappointment is the hinge on the bottom. As maybe it could have been build into the wood, it was not. Besides this issue, the balance beam is perfect. It as been used an abused in more then one way and still works perfectly. I am happy with it as my girls. A product that can make us all happy is well worth the investment.
My goal was to make her feel more confident but also keep her safe. I am so glad we purchased this for her. Every day she has been practicing and I have seen such improvement as she is no longer fearful of falling and hurting herself.
As other people have posted - there is a bar latch attachment beneath the beam that holds the beam together and yes it most certainly will scratch the floor so as per other people's advice we use my daughters room carpet beneath it.
It's super easy to move from room to room as it has a material handle.
It is a great investment and I highly recommend this beam.
