Large Over Sized Columns
Large columns add a touch of elegance and grandeur to any home or commercial space they grace however they too fall victim to the ravages of nature. Over time, large wood columns/column bases will rot and deteriorate due to water, sun, salt, snow and insect damage.
Thankfully there is a solution, Fiberglass columns are available in larger sizes ranging from 12-30 feet in height and 12-36 inches in diameter. Along with large columns come large decorative capitals and bases, there are many different choices ranging from a smaller Tuscan to a large Corinthian capital. All fiberglass columns and capitals are load bearing and can take a load of up to 20,000 lbs per column. These columns are meant to be installed whole in one piece however they can be ordered split vertically to be wrapped around a steel support as per architectural specs.
Both Round (Smooth/Fluted) and Square (Smooth/Fluted) are available, custom fluting is also available at an additional cost. Large Fiberglass (PermaCast) columns have all the same weather, water, insect, rust, rot resistance capabilities as their smaller counterparts.
Capital Columns does not install any columns higher than 12 feet. Larger columns require special equipment in order to be installed. Forklifts, Scissor Lifts, Cranes and Scaffolding will be required depending on the size of the column.
These columns are all special order items that require at least 4-6 weeks for arrival from the manufacturer.
Delivery is also a factor to be thought of before ordering as these columns can weight up to 1000 lbs. A flat bed truck is used for delivery of smaller columns however the customer must ensure that a minimum of 2 people are present to assist in offloading the columns. Large 30 foot columns are delivered using a large flat bed with a crane, once again the customer must supply man power to assist in the delivery. Delivery costs are extra.
