 Hardwood

 

 

 MATERIAL: 24 Hardwoods

 

   Hardwood columns provide the most flexibility

  for customization, from splitting for post wrap

  to wedging for outside and inside corners

  to specific heights and diameters

 

   

 

      

 
 Exterior Woods include:

 Knotty Pine:  Shellac the knots before painting

 Clear Pine: Some knots but small

 Western Red Cedar: Soft but Rot resilient

 White Oak: Extremely Hard

 

 Interior Woods include

 Red Oak, Maple, Mahogany, Beech,  Sap-Maple (very white)  Cherry, Alder, Bass, Ash

 

 All columns over 4" are hollow with 1-1/2" solid wood stave walls

 They are sold decorative but can be ordered with a solid core to carry loads

 or you can order a custom steel post

 Consult with your structural engineer and adhere to local building codes

 

 

 Hardwood Service Options

 

 Hardwood provides the ultimate customization for Size as they are all made to order

 They are made in 5 parts and each part can be customized

 

 Order your new columns with standard measurement or we can create the parts with specific

 measurements to match your needs or historic reproductions

 

 The Walls are solid kiln dried hardwood 1-1/2 inches thick with no veneers 

 Each wall stave is glued together and is stronger than one piece and avoids cracking as

 would happen with a single piece of wood that dries out and cracks

 

 For example if you want the plinth to be 4" high instead of 1-3/4"   It is possible !

 or the round flat to be 8-7/8" instead of 8 inches - It is Possible !

      

    

 

 

 

 Shaft Variances: Specify Height

 

 Specify the total height of the shaft including the Capital and Base

 We will calculate the shaft height excluding the cap and base

      

 

 

 Shaft Variances: Non-Tapered or Tapered

  You can specify if

  the shaft is tapered

  or non-tapered

  and the degree of

  tapering  

 

      

 Non-Tapered

 

 

 Top and Bottom of the shaft  

 has the same Diameter

 

  Tapered

 

 A gradual increase of diameter 2/3rds

 down the shaft. The correct entasis

 means it goes straight at the bottom

 1/3 of the shaft

 

 

 Shaft Variance: Smooth to Fluted Ratio

 

  All shafts can be made Fully Smooth

  or Fully Fluted with 12 or 24 Flutes

 

  Partly smooth or fluted or a combination is available

 

  Select from

  a) the last third, smooth as shown here

 

  b) the last third, Fluted with 12 or 24 Flutes

 

 

 Shaft Variance: Split for post wrap or Engaged

 

 

 

 All of our columns can be ordered split for

  post wrap around a load bearing post

  We do sell load bearing steel posts

  custom sized - round and square

 

  Specify if you need the caps and base

  to have a hole for the load bearing post

 

  Columns can be ordered split to go around

  inside & outside corners

  or engaged portions splits against a wall    

 

 

   

 

 

 

 Capital & Base Variance: Specify Measurements

 The hardwood

 capitals and bases

 can be

 made to any size

 since they are

 independent of the

 shafts

    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Hardwood Historic Duplicates

  \

 We can produce exact duplicates of your historic columns

  We need all the measurements, "dead-on" photos

  and / or  drawings specifying all the parts

 

 Rotted Column Components

 

 

 If for example, your column base is totally rotted

 inside and out like this one,  it is unlikely you will be

 able to save any parts of it

 

 The base holds the load of the shaft as the

 shaft bears down on the base

 

 If the base is salvageable, you can cut away

 just the rotted parts with a reciprocating saw and

 retain the good base core that will hold the shaft load

 

         

 Removing the Column & Saving a Portion of it

 

 Take down the entire column and cut away

 the old base and rotted part of the column.  We can

 replace the base and shaft portion as shown here

 PolyCompTM & FiberCompTM

 

 

 

 MATERIAL: PolyCompTM  and FiberCompTM

 

 These two materials are strong composites know as

 FRP Fiberglass Re-enforced Polymers.  They are made

 from Calcium Carbonate, Marble Chips and Fiberglass

 They are rot, water, and insect resistant.

 They are more difficult to split but can be split with a diamond blade

 or reciprocating saw.

 The bases and caps are hollow and hold no load and wrap the shaft

 The load is born on the shaft

 Service Options: PolyCompTM 

  

  Whole columns are load bearing as per the specified shaft load

 however you can order PolyCompTM Split to wrap a steel post

 

  Once Split they cease to be load bearing

       a) Split for pilaster or

       b) Split for Post Wrap

 

 There is an option to be white painted

 The bases are made from FRP and the capitals from

 ArchPolymerTM

 

          

 

 

 

 Service Options: FiberCompTM

 

  

 

 Whole columns are load bearing as per the specified shaft load

 however you can order them split.

 

 FiberCompTM has a higher level of customization 

 offering the following Split options

 

 * Split for Post Wrap - 2 equal parts

 * Wedged for an outside corner

 * Cut out for wrapping a wall

 * Split for an Inside Corner

 * Engaged Slice to go up against a wall  

 

 There is no option to be painted

 The bases and capitals are made from ArchPolymerTM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 ArchPolymerTM

 

 

 MATERIAL: ArchPolymerTM

 

 ArchPolymerTM is a synthetic composite material. 

 It is rot, water, and insect resistant. 

 You can cut it like wood and screw into it.  

 Some models come primed.

 

 

 

        

 

   

 Click for Material Properties

 

 

 Service Options: ArchPolymerTM

 

 ArchPolymerTM shafts are split and are not load bearing

 We do sell steel posts that are custom made to size to hold loads

 

 The capitals and bases are whole but can be ordered split

 

 The material is very easy to cut with a manual saw to

 adjust shaft heights.  There is no customization to shafts

 

 Capitals and bases can be modified slightly in certain cases. 

 For example the plinth (bottom square) can be made

 higher but the hole cannot be modified.

 

 ArchPolymerTM can be ordered painted
