PRECAST CONCRETE FENCE COLUMNS
Stone columns, originating in Egypt but most renowned in Roman and Greece, are structural parts of a building, wall or fence that accept the compression weight by transferring the load to a foundation below.
The stress conditions of a concrete column can require complex engineering despite a plain appearance. Equilibrium, materials, and load are used to measure and determine the size, shape, and integrity of the stone column for a particular function. To ensure a stable equilibrium, a stone column’s force will generate a small lateral deflection with a load that disappears when the lateral force is removed. The material is determined by the amount of weight the column will hold as well as local weather conditions.
