**Please consult Orchard Construction for pricing**
- A standard wood column can be used with Perma-Columns, no expensive treated wood is required.
- The wood column is attached to a steel “U” connection bracket with 1/2″ thru-bolts or 1/4″ lag bolts depending on application and preference.
- Every Perma-Column is made of 10,000 p.s.i. pre-cast concrete. This is not the standard 3,000-4,000 p.s.i. concrete typically found in foundations. Strength is not the only benefit found in this special mix. Microfibers add shock resistance and durability. Microsilicia 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/thaw protection.
- Perma-Columns innovative uplift anchor eliminates the need for an added concrete mix in the backfill.
