Artista® columns are hollow compressed fibre cement columns, with a smooth surface ready for finishing to suit your taste, whether painted or rendered. Available in a classic or tapered profile and coupled with various capitals and bases, they can add a traditional or contemporary touch to entrances, patios, pools and entertainment areas.
The column and accessories come in a range of sizes and profiles, making it easy to create an external or internal decorative or structural feature. In addition, the hollow structure of Artista® columns is a great place to conceal unsightly services and structural posts.
They can be used in both load-bearing and non-load-bearing applications. Depending on the requirements and the engineer’s specifications, Artista® columns can be left hollow or used as formwork when filled with steel-reinforced concrete. If called for, some profiles can be joined end-to-end for extra height using the joining sleeve accessory.
The column fixing bracket accessory makes retro-fitting columns to verandas an easy task. You simply fix the brackets to the floor and roof beam, jack the roof up by 30mm, insert the column and lower the roof back onto the column.
Available by special order.
