Half, Split, Column Wraps, Surrounds or Covers
All of our Columns are available as halves or can be split by us or
you in any way imaginable (some suggestions at the bottom of this
page). So click below on the material of interest (Left menu) or click below to browse
by style (Right menu). We also offer pole wraps (click on the image to the
right). Read more from this page if you need more help on
which material will suit you best. Or call us for a quick run through: Tell us
what you need done and we will tell you the best option as far ease of
installation, budget, maintenance, etc. 877-279-9993 Toll Free.
Column Covers also called surrounds or wraps are
usually a whole shaft split in half for reassembly around a structural
support. Similarly, they can be split in half for use as Pilasters.
FRP, Urethane, and PVC columns already come as halves and can be factory assembled as wholes.
GFRC, due to the weight, comes in many segmented pieces to be assembled on site.
Those that are manufactured as one whole, Fiberglass, Polymer Stone,
and Wood, can be split and used to surround lally columns, wood
posts, etc. or be used as Pilasters or as corners both inside and out. Most of our architectural pillars are load-bearing
so structural supports are only required where uplift protection is necessary. Consult an engineer
or call us for more info. Our products can also be installed concurrently with structural members to avoid
seams associated with splitting.
Our Fiber Reinforced Polymer line(pictured below) comes standard as two halves
with lap joints that can be "reassembled" into a whole around structural supports. FRP can be
made without the lap joint to be used as pilasters or we can factory assemble the two halves to form a whole. FRP
is one of our thinnest materials but the fiberglass reinforcements make the product stronger than steel. We can make the product
thicker upon request.
Our Polyurethane line
(pictured below) is also very accomodating because the shafts are actually
manufactured in 2 halves and then assembled into full columns so if a customer
needs them split, we simply do not assemble the 2 halves: Each
half comes with an interlocking edge which allows for easy reassembly around any
support. The Cap and Base are then split using regular wood working tools and
assembled around the shaft. Since our
comes primed with 2 layers of high quality primer, after some touch-ups
to the seam, the decorative column is ready for final paint finish.
The Column wrap pictured below is Cellular PVC. As mentioned previously, surrounds are
available in all of our column materials but CPVC comes as two corner halves for
easy installation around existing supports.
We can split all of our columns into many different plan types and not just 2 halves. Click the
