The finishing touches to any construction project really do contribute to the overall appearance and feel of the build. In many cases it is these finishing touches that increase the client’s level of satisfaction in the project. When it comes to concealing structural columns and unsightly support structures, column casings have become the ultimate finishing touch.  Column casings provide a stylish integrated finish, which provides the perfect solution for concealing internal and external structural columns.

  There are many different types of materials that can be used for column casings. However, aluminum is steadily becoming the most popular material of choice.

Column Casings

Perforated Sheet: Mill Finish (Kings Wharf: Reading)

Aluminum is incredible stuff! It is a unique metal with a positive image that has become the chosen solution, for interior designers and architects worldwide for disguising structural columns. In an attempt to either hide or make a structural column an architectural feature, this incredibly versatile material can be folded, formed and impressed to conceal support structures, including those made of concrete and steel.

The many desirable design properties of aluminum alloy, including its lightweight to strength ratio, makes the material physically and aesthetically suitable for use as a column encasement. In addition to using aluminum casing as a disguise, many designers are now using the material just as a contemporary architectural feature. Aluminum column casing is growing to be the ‘must have’ decorative feature.

Among aluminum’s outstanding qualities are its cost effectiveness, corrosion resistance, durability, flexibility, lightness and sustainability through recycling, in addition to the attractive finish it presents. It should be emphasised that the architectural industry considers  Aluminum as a dependable and versatile material option, appropriate for concealing interior and exterior structural columns.
