Metal Column Covers and Beam Wraps

Available in a variety of designs and finishes, Nelson Architectural metal column covers and beam wraps provide an attractive yet cost-effective approach to visually enhancing structural beams including bare support steel structures, concrete columns and wood beams. The inherent durability and simple beauty of metal make it an ideal candidate for such enclosures.

Nelson’s unique fabricating capabilities lend themselves to manufacturing non-standard shapes and sizes which are often not readily available from other manufacturers. As a result, our metal column covers and wraps have been the number one choice among many prestigious commercial, institutional and transportation facilities across North America.

Covers and wraps are available in a variety of metal alloys best suited for the intended application and typically range from .064 up to .125 inches in thickness. The most common cover and wrap alloys are 3003-H14 for aluminum and T-304 or T-316 for stainless steel. For optimal results, enclosures intended for anodizing plain (Mill) or brushed finishes generally require the use of a 5005-H34 alloy.

In addition to the aforementioned options, baked powder enamel, and two and three-coat fluoropolymer type paints are commonly used to enhance the appearance of our enclosures. Nelson also offers a wide range of linear, non-directional and selective brushed finishes, particularly in stainless steel, as well as faux wood options like our exclusive Ourborite™ finish.

At Nelson Architectural we draw from a resource base of over 150 highly skilled employees, many of whom have been engaged in this type of manufacture at Nelson for more than 25 years. Our ability to custom engineer and fabricate metal column covers and beam wraps to meet the rigorous demands of architects and designers makes for a perfect fit from the conception to the completion of a new space.

For information on Nelson Architectural or to solicit our engagement on a potential project, please contact a Nelson Sales Representative near you, or contact us directly. Detailed drawings, product, and finish samples pertaining to our metal column covers and beam wraps are available upon request.
