Just as every king needs a crown, so too do columns. Entablatures crown the tops of regal columns with elegant details including the frieze, architrave and cornice. Traditionally, entablatures are divided into the three architectural categories of Doric, Ionic and Corinthian depending on the size ratios of their constituent elements. Although entablatures rarely exist outside of classically inspired architecture, the event of post-modern architecture has caused a reinvigorated interest in entablatures. Stromberg Architectural Products offers a wide variety of GFRP entablatures in any style.

Architectural Fiberglass Entablatures: Classic Looks, Modern Convenience 

Columns and entablatures are timeless architectural elements. Since their innovation by the Greeks and Romans, thousands of years ago, every great society has employed columns and entablatures to distinguish important buildings of State and affluence. From the Parthenon to the Lincoln Memorial, columns and entablature occupy a powerful space in the psyche of humanity. However, prior to the scientific advances in building materials in the 20th and 21st centuries, stone columns and entablature were only available to the very rich and powerful. Fortunately, with the innovation of GFRP, a light-weight yet powerfully versatile synthetic building material, beautiful columns and entablatures are finally affordable. Not only does architectural fiberglass cost less than stone, but it is significantly easier to install. Stromberg’s GFRP columns and entablatures come largely pre-fabricated and ready to install. Instead of a mason, GFRP columns and entablature can be installed by any construction crew.

Like the Entablatures of Old, Stromberg’s GFRP Entablatures are Built to Last

Architectural fiberglass is not only an affordable material that is easy to install, it is also extremely durable. Architectural fiberglass has been known to stand up to the harshest weather including hurricanes. Moreover, it is resistant to corrosive substances like acid rain and smog. Even extreme cold and heat won’t delaminate or disintegrate this amazing material. Whether they are exposed to the elements on the exterior of your building, or protected under a roof, you can be sure that your entablatures will not only remain standing, but remain pristine for years to come. Indeed, unlike stone, which can become weathered and eroded, or wood, which can rot, the splendor of architectural fiberglass entablatures will not diminish over time.
