Gun Barrel Poles: No-Taper Solid Columns Up to 52 Feet Long

We manufacture Gun Barrel poles – solid poles of any length with no taper used for construction poles or structural columns in applications where strength and aesthetics are important. Gun Barrel poles make impressive columns, are structurally sound, and are available in lengths up to 52 feet and diameters up to 20 inches. Gun Barrel columns are much less expensive than traditional architectural columns and are even cheaper than square timbers and pilings in most sizes.

Cost Effective Longevity – Posts and Poles that Last Longer

KILN DRY Before Treatment – The most common failure of a post or pole is rot and decay at the ground line. By kiln drying your posts before they are treated, we significantly increase the life of your project.

Kiln drying pulls excess moisture from the post or pole allowing the pressure treatment to fully penetrate the wood. The additional cost of this service is minimal (usually less than $1 for a 4″ Top x 8 ft post), especially considering the fact that the pre-drying will effectively double the life of a post used for a fence. Contact us online to ask about pre-drying poles.

Polymer Wood Coating – For an ultra long-lasting pole or post, zone coat the wood at the ground line with our protective and GUARANTEED polymer coating. The poly wood coating is sprayed on at our facilities and creates an impenetrable barrier to termites and marine borers. The near-futuristic polymer coating is used commonly to shield Poles and Pilings in harsh environments such as saltwater and industrial applications.
