Pilasters to Correct Dimension:
To handle the variety of different heights of pilasters needed
for numerous applications, Fypon manufacturers two different
types of Pilasters that can be adjusted for height.
One-Piece Pilaster Moulded with Plinth Block
The Plinth Block (base) is moulded to the Pilaster as a one-piece
unit. Any trimming for height needs to be done at the base,
or Plinth Block area of the Pilaster.
Pilaster with Adjustable Plinth Block
The Pilaster and the Plinth Block (base) are two separate
pieces. The Pilaster can be adjusted for height by trimming
at the base, along the fluted area of the Pilaster. The Plinth
Block may also be trimmed. Then the Plinth Block is simply
installed over the fluted section.
1) Pilasters are sold in pairs.
2) It is architecturally acceptable for the crosshead to be
even with or slightly overhang the pilasters. Also, it is
acceptable for the bottom thickness of the crosshead to be
smaller than the projection of the pilasters as long as the
top projection of the crosshead is deeper than the pilasters.
