The standard capital and base set for Herculite columns is the Tuscan-style. Tuscan capitals for square columns are made from Polyurethane. Most sizes of our Tuscan capitals are made utilizing a patented process to create a Snug-Fit capital. The Polyurethane capital is created with a foam ring for a snug-fit. This capital eliminates the need to purchase a backer rod to close the gap that can occur between the column shaft and the capital. Snug-Fit capitals do not require pilot holes.
The Tuscan base is made from the same material as the column to protect both the base and column from dents and other damage. An optional Altostyle base is also available for Herculite columns.
