Round PermaCast® -

Round PermaCast®

In the first century B.C., Vitruvius, a Roman architect and engineer, wrote what has become the most influential work on classic form. In it, he elaborates on the discovery by the ancient Greeks of entasis, a gradual tapering of the upper two-thirds of the round column which offsets the undesirable illusion from eye level that the column shaft grows larger as it ascends. HB&G round tapered columns hold true to this classic form.

Please see chart below for available sizes. The custom flute is milled after the column is manufactured and can be modified to your specific length. All round PermaCast® columns, both tapered and no-taper, are available with this fluting style. Pricing and lead times vary for all custom flutes.
