Endura-Classic™ Columns

Presenting our 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.

Specifically designed for load bearing applications. Endura-Classic™ Columns are designed with architecturally accurate entasis. Endura-Classic™ Columns are the perfect solution for larger, smooth or fluted column applications.

Endura-Classic™ columns can withstand normal construction abuse, weathering, decay, insect infestation, and other environmental influences. For a simple, yet durable column, Endura-Classic™ Columns are the perfect fit.

If your project requires something more, Endura-Series™ Round Tapered Columns are also available with unique custom measurements for an ideal fit and appearance.

Endura-Classic™ Column Shaft Specifications

Craftsman columns are available plain, or with three different paneled options: raised panel, "square corner" raised panel, and recessed panel. (Since all tooling used for routing the panels is done with round bits, there will always be some radius in the cor-ners. The “square corner” style uses the smallest bit possible to minimize that radius - about 1/8”.)

Endura-Classic Plan Types

Endura-Classic Columns are as unique as the different types of installations that are available. We offer our Endura-Classic Columns in a wide variety of "Plan Types". These "Plan Types" are the style and type of shaft, capital, and base you will receive. If you are using them as half columns against a wall, you would want to select an "D" plan type. This would give you a column that could be installed against a wall. These are the most common plan types, however, we can do custom plan types if your project requires it.
