New Fypon Woodgrain Structural Columns Hold up to 12,000 Pounds

            MAUMEE, OHIO – Builders and remodelers seeking the detailed appearance of wood with the exceptional performance of polyurethane will find both in the new Woodgrain Structural Columns from Fypon.

            Designed to be beautiful as well as strong, the nine-foot tall structural column comes with the cap molded in and a loose base, so that it can be cut down on the jobsite for height adjustments. The Fypon® Woodgrain Structural Column is reinforced with steel and has a load-bearing capacity up to 12,000 pounds. The pre-primed column is ready for paint or stain and installation hardware is included with the column for ease of ordering.*

            "The beauty of this column is that it resembles real wood, but comes with all the benefits of polyurethane," says Kyle Crompton, product manager for Fypon. "Like all our Fypon products, the Woodgrain Structural Columns are resistant to rotting, warping, cracking, insects, moisture and peeling. Best of all, the consistent quality delivered from piece to piece makes them a dependable favorite for building industry professionals."

            Crompton points out that the columns can be used on both the interior and exterior of residential and commercial projects. "These columns are built to last and maintain their original conditions for years of service," says Crompton. "That makes them appealing for both new construction and remodeling projects in all areas of the country."
