Are they strong enough?

Perma-Columns® have been extensively tested by both Wisconsin and Purdue university. In comparative strengths, Perma-Columns® have proven to outperform the industry standard for wood columns. As a general rule of thumb, Perma-Columns® are as strong as the wood they are replacing.

Engineered to last

Perma-Column® uses the latest in SCC precasting technology. We use microfibers to add shock resistance and durability and microsilica to enhance flexural/compressive strength and erosion resistance. A corrosion inhibitor protects the rebar reinforcement from rusting, and a final admixture is added for freeze and thaw protection. Our proprietary powder coat has been tested to exceed 2,500 salt spray hours. Our patented design guarantees a lifetime of durability. All the steel we use is premium, high-strength alloy purchased in the U.S.

The green alternative

Perma-Column® precast concrete columns are the environmentally friendly solution for post-frame foundations. Our products are made from 100 percent recycled materials and contain no toxic chemicals. They keep treated wood out of the ground, preventing harmful chemicals from leaching into the surrounding soil. The extended service life of Perma-Column® maximizes the use of resources.
