Our WORTHINGTON Stone™, WORTHINGTON Cast™, WORTHINGTON FRP™, Aluminum as well as our wide array of wood columns, are all load bearing as long as they are not split.
The columns ship with a qualified freight carrier company. They are crated and placed on a pallet.
Yes. If the column is non-tapered, you may trim to any specific height. Each column must be trimmed from the bottom of the shaft.
To reassemble a split Worthington Column, a polyurethane construction adhesive should be used. This product can be found at any hardware or construction-supply provider. For our wood columns, any waterproof wood glue should be used.
Split columns are used for visual purposes only (aluminum is the exception). Once the column is cut vertically, it is no longer load-bearing.
Depending on your application, there are several ways to hold a column in place when used for decoration purposes only. One of the most common ways to hold a column in place is to use standard L brackets on the bottom and top of the column’s shaft. The Tuscan Base and Capital hide this method of installation. If being assembled around a wooden post, a common way to secure the column is by using wood shims. The shims should fit snugly between the column shaft and the post for proper stability.
It depends. If you are using one of our WORTHINGTON Cast™, WORTHINGTON FRP™ or paint grade wood columns, then an oil-based or acrylic latex paint must be used. Our WORTHINGTON Stone™ and Aluminum Columns come in a pre-finished material that, unless installation touch ups are needed, does not require painting.
For all of our Columns, the capital and base do not add any height unless a decorative capital is used. For all of our wood columns, the capital and base do add height. These heights can be adjusted per your request.
