Americana’s fiberglass columns are shaped as they were in Ancient Greece, stretching upward from a strong base to a graceful taper at the smooth top. Our fiberglass columns, whether round, fluted, or square, are specially constructed for all types of decorative and load-bearing installations and have architecturally correct proportions and projections.
The Greeks used the word entasis to describe their gently curved columns. You’ll call them beautiful! They are perfect for indoor and outdoor applications, and ideal for both residential and commercial use. Whether it’s for new construction or remodeling, our fiberglass columns are the low-cost way to add a touch of elegance and more architectural detail to your designs.
They’re manufactured from high-density, highly advanced fiberglass polymers that resist impact damage and are virtually maintenance free. They’ll last a lifetime!
Unlike wood, fiberglass columns will not rot, split, or warp. They are more impact-resistant than wood. And, of course, termites hate them.
They can be used as load bearing structural elements in entrances, covered walkways, lobbies, colonnades, balconies, and other structures, inside or out.
Easy Handling and Installation
Cut the columns to size, and slip on the cap and bases. Easy-to-follow assembly and installation instructions are available and packaged with each column.
Complete Range Of Sizes & Styles
Round smooth columns are available in 8″, 10″, 12″, 14″, 16″, 18″, 20″, 22″, 24″, and 30″ diameters, sized to fit any application. Round fluted columns are available in 8″, 10″, and 12″ sizes. Square columns are provided in 8″, 10″, and 12″ sizes.
For outdoor installations, the columns must be protected with good quality latex paint. (Do not use an oil-based paint.) No special preparation is required. Once painted, the columns will not deteriorate, even under severe long-term weathering.
