Our Square Fiberglass Columns are produced from a Fiberglass reinforced polymer composite with exceptional durability and strength to weight characteristics, enabling them to stand up to the elements like no other columns on the market. When you consider the winters we get in Canada and the amount of salt used on porches and front steps, builder grade wood columns don’t stand a chance. Not only do the columns themselves stand up to the elements but the Caps and especially the Bases are also extremely durable and Salt Resistant.
Square Fiberglass Columns are load bearing, the capacity will depend on the size and diameter of the individual column. These columns are considered Heavy Duty in the Column Industry due to their high load bearing capacity. Square Fiberglass columns can have up to a 20,000 lbs load bearing capacity, which in most cases is overkill. It’s just nice to know that something so strong is holding up the house and roof.
Square Fiberglass Columns are available in a variety of sizes and diameters, from 6″, 8″, 10″ to 12″ widths and 8 feet – 12 foot heights. Various style of bases are also available and will be used depending on the situation, one of our Design Consultants will be happy to help you choose. Once installed, the columns require a coat of paint and will accept any colour you choose. A 100% Acrylic paint is recommended.
