Square Fiberglass Columns
Square fiberglass columns offer an alternative to the more traditional round columns. Crown's plain square fiberglass columns in 8", 10" and 12" diameters up to 1' in length are made from specially formulated glass-reinforced polymers with a one-piece shaft and applied astragal with an attractive capital and base molding. Crown's square fiberglass column is both lightweight and strong, resulting in a column that is easy to handle, water-resistant and impervious to moisture-related problems. Plain square fiberglass columns are available in 6", 14" and 16" diameter up to 18' in length and are produced similar to round fiberlgass columns as cast glass-reinforced polymers with exceptional strength and durability.
Fluted square fiberglass columns in 8", 10" and 12" diameters up to 12' in length are also available and are produced by the same process as fiberglass round columns with glass-reinforced polymers. The astragal is cast on the column; the flutes are crisp, deep and architecturally correct.
Two new square column products to the Crown offering are Recessed Panel and Arts & Crafts columns. The Recessed Panel square column has a Shaker style recess and is available in 8" through 14" diameters up to 14' in length. The Arts & Crafts style columns are available in four sizes and have an exaggerated taper. The Arts & Crafts style column is extremely attractive when placed on pedestals and is featured in bungalow style home designs.
