Based in Toronto, Ontario, Global Aluminum Solutions offers you a wide variety of aluminum columns. Square smooth, square panel, superior extruded aluminum round and square fluted columns – all of these create an elegant appearance at a fraction of the cost of other materials such as wood. This makes them ideal for both, new constructions and renovations.
Aluminum columns are also extremely versatile. You can use them to get a classical touch on your home, office building, school, church, museum or library. Unlike the traditional wood columns, aluminum columns are sturdier, require no maintenance and can withstand any weather. Besides, you don’t have to worry about the colour peeling or wearing off; on aluminum columns, the colour is built-in.
Moreover, they have more than a decorative purpose. Aluminum columns are sturdy enough to act as bearing structural elements, whether you use them indoor or outdoor. For example, a round column with a 6” diameter and an 8 feet length can support up to 16,000 lbs.
Another important advantage of aluminum columns is the ease of installation. You simply need to cut the sections, lock them together and then easily place them in the bases and caps. You can also opt for all-snap columns; in this case, all you need to do is snap the staves together, do the same with the caps and bases and then locate them in the desired position.
If you are unsure about the diameter you need, feel free to call Global Aluminum Solutions to speak with an expert. We can help you with the design, manufacturing and installing of any type of column.
