Capitals & Bases
Now with FlameGuard™
Poly-Classic Columns have redefined the standards for versatility, style,
and freedom from maintenance for residential and commercial column
installations. They offer the traditional aesthetics of
architecturally proportioned columns with the non-traditional benefits of
the most advanced construction materials in the world today.
Now with FlameGuard™, Poly-Classic Columns set a new industry
standard---the beauty of flame resistance. They are the first
rotocast fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP) columns to pass the ASTM E,
84-01 test which measures the flame spread and smoke development of
building components in a fire.
FRP Columns are available in tapered fluted columns, tapered smooth
columns, non-tapered smooth columns, square non-tapered columns, square
fluted and raised panel columns. We can also manufacture any size
column to your exact specifications. Whether exterior columns are
needed or interior columns, we have what you are looking for.
Features & Benefits
Poly-Classic Columns now have a Flame Spread Index (FSI) of 15. This
index puts the Poly-Classic Column in a Class I Flame-Spread
classification under the 1997 uniform fire code. This is an industry
first for FRP columns.
Columns also have a Smoke Developed Index (SDI) of 335. This index
is well below the allowable SDI index of 450. This is also an
industry first for FRP Columns.
Standard FRP Columns have a typical Flame Spread Index (FSI) of 70-85 and
a Smoke Developed Index (SDI) of 900-1025.
