Composite Columns in GFRC

In its most basic form, a column is a vertical structural component that transmits the weight of the structure above it to structural elements below. It does this through compression. A Composite column is a combination of the spiral, scroll-like ornaments of the Ionic column and the acanthus leaves of the Corinthian column. The Arch of Titus in the Roman forum, built in 82 A.D., is considered the first example of a Composite order.

GFRC Composite columns from Stromberg are beautiful and built with the quality Stromberg has come to be known for. Luxury resorts, 5 star hotels and private estates have these exquisite Composite columns as part of their architectural design.
