Round Fiberglass Columns
Fiberglass columns from Crown Column & Millwork are a satisfying combination of modern-day technology and low maintenance care. Each column shaft is produced with the lower one third straight and the upper two thirds tapered, creating a correct architectural entasis. Entasis, attributed to ancient Greek architecture, is the slight convex curving of the column shaft resulting in a most pleasing appearance.
Fiberglass columns are available in plain and fluted shafts. Our fluted round columns are cast fluted, resulting in a crisp, deep and architecturally correct Ionic flute. Round fluted columns are available in a wide range of sizes from 6" through 18" diameter. The columns are a composition of cast glass-reinforced polymers with exceptional strength and durability. Priming and painting with an oil-based or latex coating is all that is necessary after installation. They exceed requirements for flame spread and smoke density (SDA) and each has a NFPA class A rating and BOCA Type I rating for flame spread and smoke development. Smoke density and flame spread results can be found in the ICC-ES Legacy Report No.2405 for Crown Column & Millwork.
Non-tapered plain cast columns are available in 8", 10", 12", 14" and 16" diameters up to 18' in length. A fiberglass barrel column is available in 10" diameter and 8' in length. All Crown fiberglass columns come with a limited lifetime warranty for material and workmanship when properly installed.
