DuraClassic™ Composite Fiberglass Columns

Our popular DuraClassic™ composite fiberglass columns are are the industry standard for quality and durability and are backed by our limited lifetime warranty, yet they are very affordably priced. DuraClassic™ fiberglass columns are available as load bearing columns or split columns, and are offered in round and square shaft styles in over 40 beautiful classical and contemporary designs.

Why Construction Professionals Specify DuraClassic™ Composite Fiberglass Columns

DuraClassic™ fiberglass columns are known throughout the industry for their durability, ease of installation, warranty and affordable cost. DuraClassic™ composite fiberglass columns are cast entirely top to bottom (capital, shaft, base and plinth) from our durable fiberglass reinforced poly/marble composite which will not dent and is very impact resistant. As a result, our DuraClassic™ fiberglass columns are specified by the finest architectural firms and construction companies in the country for their most demanding high traffic and extreme wear applications like apartments, HUD housing, and schools. However, classically beautiful DuraClassic™ composite fiberglass columns are just as well suited to enhance the beauty of the porch of your new home. Don’t buy a fiberglass column with an inferior soft and easy to dent or break foam base made in China from low density polyurethane like most manufacturers offer. If you are looking for a classically beautiful and crisply detailed fiberglass column that is affordably priced and backed by a lifetime warranty, be sure you specify the best… DuraClassic™ composite fiberglass columns by Melton Classics.

Broad Selection of Fiberglass Column Designs

Available in both round and square shaft column styles, our DuraClassic™ are offered with smooth, fluted or paneled shafts in a wide selection of authentic classical designs. In addition, we also offer our DuraClassic™ fiberglass columns in Contemporary and Craftsman styles, and many non-tapered styles to allow you to select the ideal composite fiberglass columns to enhance the beauty of your design. Whether your home or building calls for classically simple Tuscan fiberglass columns, or an elegantly beautiful Roman Corinthian style, Melton Classics has the ideal DuraClassic™ fiberglass columns for your design, application and budget.

DuraClassic™ Composite Fiberglass Columns are Simple to Install

Whether your building needs require load bearing fiberglass columns or fiberglass column covers to beautify your structural supports, DuraClassic™ columns are designed and engineered for quick and easy installation. We offer complete installation kits with all the hardware you need for a load bearing installation, and for column cover applications, we offer assembly kits to make the joining of the split column halves quick and simple.
