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 load that disappears when the lateral force is removed. Material is determined by the amount of weight the column will hold as well as local weather conditions.
