We are a stocking dealer and wholesale distribution hub for Richland Laminated columns. Laminated columns are stronger, lighter and won't warp and twist like solid sawn timbers. The columns are made by laminating 2x6 and 2x8 #1 SYP lumber together to make a superior column. Unlike solid sawn treated timbers, laminated columns carry a 40 year warranty against rot, decay and termite damage. Treated timbers do not carry a warranty when used in a structural application. These columns are standard in every ProMark building package.
Additional Post Protection Options
Keep wood out of the ground with precast concrete Perma-Columns, the first product to combine the economy of post-frame construction with the durability of a concrete foundation. Simple installation. No waiting on concrete trucks. No treated wood in the ground. No more rot.
What They're Made Of
We use the latest in SCC precasting technology. Microfibers add shock resistance and durability. Microsilicia enhances flexural/compressive strength and erosion resistance. A corrosion inhibitor protects the rebar reinforcement from rusting, and a final admixture is added to give freeze and thaw protection. Our special mix guarantees a lifetime of durability.
The wood column is attached to a “U” shaped steel bracket. The bracket is robotically welded to steel reinforcement that runs the entire length of the column. All the steel we use is premium high strength alloy purchased in the U.S.A.
Stronger than you think
Perma-Columns are three times the strength of standard concrete and in comparative strength tests conducted by Wisconsin and Purdue University, Perma-Columns have proven to outperform the industry standard wood columns.
