Decorative: Used freestanding for purely decorative purposes, or as a dressing around a load bearing timber or steel post.
Unfilled Load Bearing: Subject to loading criteria being satisfied, can be used to support lightweight roof structures, often without any further reinforcement required other than hold-down straps.
Load Bearing: Can be filled with reinforced concrete to support heavier loads (see James Hardie technical literature for more information).
Conceal Services: Columns can be split and used to conceal unsightly services.
