WHAT THEY ARE MADE OF
We use the latest in SCC precasting technology. Microfibers add shock resistance and durability. Microsilica enhances flexural/compressive strength and erosion resistance. A corrosion inhibitor protects the rebar reinforcement from rusting, and a final admixture is added to give freeze and thaw protection. Our special mix guarantees a lifetime of durability.
The wood column is attached to a “U” shaped steel bracket. The bracket is robotically welded to steel reinforcement that runs the entire length of the column. All the steel we use is premium high strength alloy purchased in the U.S.A.
STRONGER THAN YOU THINK
Perma-Column® precast piers are three times the strength of standard concrete. Comparative strength tests conducted by University of Wisconsin and Purdue University proved that Perma-Column® outperforms industry standard wood columns.
