Polymer Stone Pillars

Polymer Stone

Manufactured using a combination of polymer resin, marble dust, and pigment resulting in a man-made stone pillar that is fully permeated with the color of your choice.  Synthetic Stone is significantly lighter than natural stone and concrete but is stronger, more durable, and looks and feels identical to stone (doesn't look like plastic).  Choose from a smooth or textured finish, round or square, and fluted or plain.  We have 4 ornate Capitals to choose from as well as Tuscan and Doric Caps and Bases. This product line is also referred to as RoyalStone or Faux Stone. Click Start to see sizes, styles, etc.

FRP Columns

FRP

Fiber Reinforced Polymer columns are a lighter alternative to RoyalCast. FRP is predominately comprised of fiberglass strand which makes the product stronger than steel. These are usually ordered as surrounds or as 2 halves that are quickly "re-assembled" using the embedded lap joints to form one whole. Factory assembled is an available option when whole columns are needed. This product comes standard with a white gelcoat finish but is limitless when it comes to the variety of stone-like finishes and solid colors that we offer. The product can come in a matte finish, a glossy finish, or a textured finish that feels like stone. FRP is much lighter than RoyalCast and RoyalStone and is available in every size as those two product lines. Click Start to see sizes, styles, etc.

  • White Gelcoat standard
  • Architecturally correct proportions
  • Durable, Low maintenance, decay resistant
  • Decorative
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

Polymer Stone

GFRC Concrete

Our Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Columns are manufactured using a combination of concrete, fiberglass strand, and pigment resulting in a stone-like concrete pillar that is fully permeated with the color and texture of your choice. GFRC is similar to our synthetic stone products except that they are segmented to imitate natural stone columns. GFRC is lighter than natural stone and solid concrete but is heavier than our polymer stone columns.  It is load-bearing even though it is segmented and can be made structural.  They are available in every style and size as our other products or in any size that you can envision or require.  Click start to see all of the facade elements we offer made from our reinforced concrete.

aluminum pillar installed

Aluminum

Our Aluminum line is one of our least favorite due to the lifeless appearance of these non-tapered "posts." The product is of the highest extruded quality, made in America, and comes in 5 prefinished color options that are baked into the product; however, our fiberglass line, which is architecturally correct in appearance, comes with a lifetime warranty and is hands down the best value.  Read more about what it means to have architecturally correct proportions HERE. We understand that some projects are budget sensitive or must incorporate the products that are specified so click start to read more about our Aluminum lineup.
