Architectural Columns


Overview of our Architectural Columns

The architectural column has remained popular since classical times. It has won favor through revival periods, and continues to inspire timelessly elegant exterior and interior enhancements today. Whether crafted in ultra-durable fiberglass or naturally beautiful carved wood, the architectural column has a special beauty, and it is sure to become a defining addition to any space.

Our column selection includes columns crafted in materials best suited for both exterior and interior applications. We offer both architecturally correct columns, as well as columns in custom heights and diameters.

The architecturally correct column stays true to the proportions of its classical predecessors. For example, the slender and lofty Corinthian column has a height-to-thickness ratio of 10:1, whereas the stocky Tuscan column has a height-to-thickness ratio of 7:1. The architecturally correct Doric column has 20 flutes and the Ionic column is decorated with 24 flutes. Most columns also include a tapered shaft. This gives the column a dramatic and elegant appearance.

Endura-Stone™ Architectural Columns

Endura-Stone™ Columns are architecturally proportioned columns manufactured from rotocast, Fiberglass-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) - the most advanced construction material in the world. With Flame Guard™, Endura-Stone™ Columns have become the first FRP column to achieve the distinction of passing an industry test (ASTME, 84-01) that measures the flame spread and smoke development of building components in a fire.

Endura-Craft™ Craftsman Columns

Endura-Craft™ Columns are the last segment in Pacific Columns' extensive line of composite columns. These columns are the perfect combination of early 1900's Arts and Crafts architecture and today's most advanced construction materials. The Endura-Craft™ Column Series is manufactured from the highest quality expanded cellular PVC, allowing them to be trimmed, drilled, and even fastened with traditional carpentry tools.

Endura-Classic™ Architectural Columns

Endura-Classic Round Tapered Columns feature "entasis", or a slight bulge near the center of the column's shaft. Ancient Greek and Roman architects believed that entasis corrected a concave appearance in the column's shaft caused by perspective. The result is an ancient formula designed to create the most visually pleasing column possible. Also, the height of the Round Tapered Column is also seven circumferences of the shaft, an additional feature that keeps the round tapered column in step with traditional measurements.

Endura-Lite™ Light-Weight Columns

Sometimes the most beautiful solutions are the most simple. Endura-Lite square columns from Turncraft offer the classic beauty that homeowners and commercial property owners appreciate. Made from lightweight fiberglass, these columns are easy to cut, easy to install, and strong enough to carry heavy loads. Like other Endura columns, Endura-Lite columns are decay resistant and require little maintenance.

Endura-Lum™ Aluminum Columns

The Endura-Lum selection includes six square columns and one round column that can be installed with additional bases. The diverse square column selection has traditional character. The round aluminum column comes with a standard base and capital. Give this column a character-filled appearance with the addition of the Corinthian Capital or the Scamozzi Capital.
