What is the circumference of this column

What is the circumference of this column

Circumference is calculated as "pi" times the diameter, therefore, 3.1415926 X 8 inches = 25.13274 inches.

Can this be cut into half vertically?

I have a poll in the wall with half exposed, so wanted only half of it? Luckily the height is 8 ft.
Asked by: Jak
To cut a tapered column will take a band saw. Make a jig with a wedge at the small end to create your centerline.

Does the base and cap add any length or is 96" the max for this column i need 97"

Asked by: Stan
If the column is too short, you can add a filler at the bottom or top. This would be something you provide that adds the additional height you need. On one application I need five more inches in height. I added a 2'x12"x12" concrete pad at the bottom (it was setting on concrete patio), and a 3" thick wood spacer at the top. I made both of these spacers a couple of inches wider than the top and and base that is made by the manufacture. They were painted the same color as the column and look like they are part and parcel to it.

Does this column come in two pieces to "wrap" an existing steel post?

We have steel poles holding up our car port connected to our house. I want to wrap them with a more decorative cover.
Asked by: Sommers
No, this specific product does not come in two pieces. There is such a product but you will need to search on "column wraps" to get some options.

Customer Reviews

8 in. x 8 ft. Round PermaCast Structural FRP Column is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outsanding Product and Durability I installed five of these columns across a very large concrete patio (2,000 sf) off the back of our house in 2011. The elegance it gave to the setting was worth everything! They have drawn many complements from our guests over the years. I installed the base on a 2"x12:"x12" concrete pad that was anchored to the patio concrete with rebar and construction adhesive, making the installation impervious to water, even though rainwater flows around them.. Two metal brackets were used inside the sealed column, and they were coated with plastic before sealing. After 5 years no deterioration of any kind, and a recent re-paint job makes them look new again. Great product, and no maintenance except for a paint job every few years. Could not be more pleased with the product or the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HB&G 8" x 8' Permacast Columns The Columns were installed and look graceful in front of our residence. Amazingly, they are rated at supporting up to 5,000 lbs. each. That more than meets the specs for the job they were used for. Great addition to our home!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it. The columns look fantastic, but they didn't start out that way. They are perfectly round and the cap and base are shaped well, but the seam was way too obvious and was on both sides so couldn't be hidden. It had the look of pvc, not exactly fitting the Grecian feel. so we sprayed the entire unit with surecrete wall spray so it would look like stone. After 3 coats, the seam still showed a bit, but since the texture was nice, I figured few wold notice the seam. It came out so well, we may even buy a few more.
