DELIVERY AND/OR INSTALLATION OF ANY OF OUR PRODUCTS**

All Aristone columns are available in the following configurations:

One Piece Columns:
- Structural Concrete
These are one-piece solid concrete columns, typically used in load bearing situations. To provide structural integrity the columns are cast with a rebar cage in the center. The cage consists of #5 rebar in 21” base columns and #4 rebar in 16 & 18” base columns, both have #3 stirrups on 8” centers. The rebar extends out 12” from the bottom of the base of the column. There is a ¾” x 6” coil loop insert cast into the top of the column, it is used to attach the structural member to the top of the column, it can also be used to lift the column provided the correct bolt and lifting fitting is used. All structural information is available by request or on our website at www.aristonedesigns.com

** IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT A BACK-UP CHOKER IS USED DURING THE INSTALLATION OF STRUCTURAL CONCRETE COLUMNS **

** PLEASE REMEMBER OUR STRUCTURAL COLUMNS WEIGH
UP TO 2,500 LBS AND SHOULD ONLY BE INSTALLED BY A LICENSED
PRECAST INSTALLATION CONTRACTOR **

- Plaster
One-piece plaster columns are for interior use only and have no load bearing capability. The typical wall thickness is +/- 1”. It is important that plaster columns be installed a minimum of 4” off the floor to avoid damage from brooms, kids, vacuum’s etc.

- GFRC
Glass Fiber Reinforced (GFRC) columns are cast horizontally in 2 pieces and can be joined at the factory when a one-piece column is desired.


Split Columns (SP):
Split columns are used primarily when you have to “wrap” around a structural support post. Concrete split columns can be assembled and grouted solid to provide a structural member (please check your local building codes). The center void for the concrete split columns is from 5” to 10” depending on the columns size. The center void for the GFRC and Plaster columns is +-2” less than the outside shaft diameter.

SPLIT COLUMNS ARE AVAILABLE IN CONCRETE, PLASTER , FRP (FIBERGLASS REINFORCED POLYMER) AND GFRC (GLASS FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE)

PLEASE REMEMBER 1 “SPLIT” COLUMN IS 2 PIECES

Three Piece Fluted Columns:
Our three piece fluted columns (Corinthian, Ionic & Tuscan) come with a 21 ½” square base with a 11 ½” diameter void in center, a solid structural shaft (see solid column section for structural information) and a 19” square capital with a 8 ½” void in the center. The rebar cage extends approximately 12” out of the top and bottom of the solid shaft.
