Square Pilasters and Half Columns
Pilasters are very similar to square columns in many ways except pilasters cannot stick out more than 4 inches from the column with the widest part being the face. Square pilasters can also be modified to go all the way around or into a corner. Like all columns, pilasters can be smooth, paneled or fluted depending on style, design or facing chosen. Pilasters were originally created as a subtle alternative to fiberglass columns; they share the same basic shape with a plinth block on top of the pilaster section. This section can be fluted, smooth or paneled. The type of pilaster you select should match your building’s exterior, while giving it a distinctive, elegant look.
Columns, Pilasters & Post Wraps
Pilasters are a very distinct type of trim that comes in several main varieties. The fluted pilaster is supposed to resemble the columns used in Greek and Roman architecture. Fluted is still considered the most elegant style for columns and pilasters. The pilasters we manufacture at Fiberglass Technologies are made of high-quality materials which resemble wood without the deterioration and maintenance. Our pilasters can stand alone or compliment columns, pediments, crossheads or simple casing design. They are an easy way to increase the value and elegance of the property.
