PermaLite columns are a cost-effective, load bearing, and versatile option. Manufactured using pultrusion technology, PermaLite columns have the same structural benefits at almost 1/3 of the weight of our PermaCast columns. For example, a 10” PermaCast column has a load bearing capacity of 14,000 pounds. A 10” PermaLite column has a load bearing capacity of 7,000 pounds. A 10” Wood column has a load bearing capacity of 4,200 pounds.
They come ready to prime and paint with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. This is the perfect weatherproof and low maintenance option for a porch. PermaLite is available in plain, square, and recessed panel options with several different cap and base styles. PermaLite columns cannot be split.

PermaLite columns also have the ability to be converted from a single panel column to a 2 or 3 panel column with the Panel Divider Kit. One panel kit can create a 2-panel column appearance while two panel kits can create a 3-panel column appearance.
