Schacht Beam Kit for Arras Tapestry Loom

Schacht Arras Tapestry Loom - Beam Kit

The Beam Kit for the Arras Tapestry Loom allows you to wind longer warps giving you the flexibility of weaving different-sized projects.  The beam kit includes a sturdy base, plus ratcheted warp and cloth beams for superb tensioning control.  

The Schacht beam kit will fit on all Arras looms. Assembly is simple and requires only a #2 Phillips screwdriver.

Once you’ve installed the kit, you will need a raddle no more than 20″ wide to warp the loom. Our raddle for warps up to 20″ wide perfectly fits the loom.


  • Durability—made of solid maple hardwood and maple plywood to hold its shape even under high tension tapestry weaving requires warp after warp after warp.
  • Precise tension control.
  • Generous sizing—20″ weaving width and a continuous warp of 45″. For longer warps, add the optional beam kit upgrade with ratcheted cloth and warp beams.
