TUSCAN COLUMNS

Tuscan columns are the columns used most frequently in the United States because they are also the simplest.  They are not carved and do not have scrolls.  They are columns that have a capital that is square with a circle under the square.  Think of the circle as being round crown molding.  There may be a ring under the circle, all of which would be considered the column capital.

AAS has an extensive range of molds to manufacture columns with a much shorter turn around time. The team is able to customize the column design for any diameter, length, as well as size of the capital.

  • Vibrant-tamp cast stone columns provide options for design with unparalleled flexibility and design freedom to integrate columns into facades, cladding designs, porticos, or other ornamental design elements.
  • Wet-pour architectural precast concrete columns are ideally suited for load bearing applications.
  • GFRC column covers are 3/4″ inch think. They provide very competitive strength to weight ratio and are suitable for higher elevation applications, or cladding design elements where they aren’t bearing the load by themselves.

AAS provides design assist, construction assist for the columns confirming design feasibility, and also simplifying the installation process.
