These products are incredibly light for their size which makes them ideal for mail order shipment. This does not mean they are flimsy or weak.  The caps and bases can be struck repeatedly with a hammer and suffer little or no damage.

      Cap and Base Dimensions
Classic Column caps and bases are offered in 4 different sizes and 2 types that are available to meet your project needs. The IPS models are compatible with the IPS PVC Pipe which can be purchased in lengths up to 20 ft. The SWR models are compatible with the SDR 35 PVC pipe that is most often sold in lengths of 13'.

NOTE Sometimes the SDR35 pipe is more economical to buy due to its thinner wall thickness. Any project requiring smaller than 13 foot pipe should consider the SDR35. Most times, the SDR35 pipe is green in color which needs be primed and painted just like the white IPS pipe. The prime coat will easily cover the green pipe.

Our 8" column is a full 8 5/8" top to bottom and has the appearance of a tapered 10" column which is about 8 1/4" at the top tapering to 9 1/2 " at the bottom.

Our 10" column is a full 10 3/4" top to bottom and has the appearance of a tapered 12" column which is about 10 1/4" at the top tapering to 11 1/2 " at the bottom.

Our 12" column is a full 12 3/4" top to bottom and has the appearance of a tapered 14" column which is about 12 1/4" at the top tapering to 13 1/2 " at the bottom.
