Endura-Series™ - Composite Columns
There are four Materials in the Endura-Series™ Composite Columns family to choose from, no matter what size, design, or style of column you are looking for, rest assure that you can find it within the Endura-Series™ Composite Columns family.
Endura-Stone™ - Fiberglass-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composite 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. Pound for pound they are stronger than concrete columns, steel columns, stone columns, wood columns, or aluminum columns. With the look and feel of natural stone, Endura-Stone™ columns are the most popular column for both interior columns and exterior columns. Endura-Stone™ columns offer exceptionally low maintenance, the look-and-feel of natural stone, and a range of applications unequalled by conventional wood columns. They are non-porous, waterproof, and impervious to termite and carpenter ant attack as well as staining and decaying fungi. High-humidity environments that are so hard on wood columns have no effect on these Endura-Stone™ columns; they are rot-proof because they absorb virtually no moisture. In fact, temperature extremes and thermal cycling have very little effect on Endura-Stone™ columns.
Endura-Craft™ - PVC Column Wraps
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. Although wood tools are used to install these innovative Endura-Craft™ Craftsman PVC Column Wraps there is no need for the traditional joinery work of wood columns or the constant painting and upkeep that wood columns require. With the E-Z Lock column joint design, Endura-Craft™ Craftsman Columns come ready for quick and simple installation. This allows the PVC Column Wraps to have hollow centers ready to wrap a support beam, act as a channel for downspouts or hiding wiring and plumbing. Detachable bases allow each Endura-Craft™ Craftsman column to be trimmed to a specified height.
Endura-Wound™ - Filament Wound - Composite Columns
Specifically designed for load bearing applications Endura-Wound™ Filament Wound Columns are designed with architecturally accurate entasis, manufactured with space age filament winding technology and offer a Lifetime Warranty. Endura-Columns filament winding technology comes from today's advanced design and fabrication procedures for rocket and missile cases - creating lighter weight structures without sacrificing strengths. Endura-Wound™ Columns are the perfect solution for larger, smooth fiberglass columns. Manufactured using a filament winding process, continuous glass fibers and resins are spun up and down a column-shaped lathe in two directions: 90° and 45°. This allows for maximum strength and high durability with an ultra-light weight, making installation a breeze. No heavy equipment is necessary to install these light weight columns. The Filament Wound Columns can withstand normal construction abuse, weathering, decay, insect infestation, and other environmental influences. For a simple, yet durable column, Endura-Wound™ Columns are the perfect fit.
Endura-Classic™ - Fiber/Resin Infusion - Composite Columns
Endura-Classic™ Columns incorporates the latest technology in fiber placement and resin infusion. The walls of Endura-Classic™ Columns are made from contiguous fiberglass/polyester with unidirectional fiber placement for added load capability. This method allows for manufactured columns up to 36" in diameter with architecturally correct Ionic Flutes. Endura-Classic™ Columns are the ideal solution for jobs that specify a large, fluted column.
