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 our Endura-Stone™ Columns 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.
