Brick Columns in Oklahoma

Columns are the fundamental pillars in any construction project. Indeed, the successful or unsuccessful outcome of any work will depend largely on a good base with these, which also ensures a safe, strong and beautiful structure over the years. So brick columns cover these and other needs. .

It is true that there are columns with created with a different material. For example, concrete blocks. Although it is a good choice, brick has its own characteristics that are so far unique.

For example, brick stands out as an excellent thermal and moisture insulator like no other material. Tests in water or dry ice between brick and concrete block have demonstrated the superiority of the former in insulating moisture versus the latter. 

The same is true for temperature. Brick in cold environments keeps the place warm and in hot weather, it keeps the place cool. Of course there are more reasons to choose brick that we invite you to know in this article.

Why brick columns?

First of all, it would be good for you to know a little about this material, that is, from its creation to its delivery. You may know that brick is the result of mixing clay, water and other chemicals. But for this to take shape there is a process of several rigorous stages that guarantee a quality product for the construction industry; among them:

Selection; That is to say the collection of the clay in the quarries near the factory. Subsequently, this material passes through crushing machines that reduce its thickness.

Filtration; The previous process produces a homogeneous paste that reaches a kind of filters whose function is to retain large particles that have been left. This until a finer powder is obtained.

Mixing: At this point the material receives a metallic element called vario. This will prevent discoloration. The following is to add little water to the previous mixture, in this way the brick will be resistant.

Column: The mixture passes through a machine called nozzle. It builds columns of 3 meters long. These are the sizes of the blocks initially.

Cutting: Blades cut the previous columns to a suitable size. Subsequently, sandpaper gives smoothness and texture to the blocks. Finally, another machine cuts the columns so that 50 bricks per column result.

Drying: The blocks go through a dryer at 120°C for two days. Then they go to a kiln with a temperature of 1000°C.

Finally, they go to the packing area.

In another order of ideas, one of the reasons to choose the brick in the columns of your structure among other things is the versatility in textures, designs and shapes. For this reason, here are the types of columns:

Salomonic: The structures with this type of columns fit perfectly for classic, modern or contemporary spaces. According to history, the name originates from the columns that were in King Solomon's temple. 

They refer to spiral-shaped pillars that in Baroque and Byzantine times, in addition to architectural beauty, represented grandeur, superiority and elegance. You can see them in:

  • In Balconies
  • Porches
  • Pantheons
  • Domes
  • Fences
  • Residential and commercial fronts...

Rectangular: The typical vertical columns that give support to buildings, foundations or simply decorative in other spaces such as:

  • Fences
  • Parking lots
  • Gates
  • On walls at entrances...

Oval: They give unique styles to:

  •  Residences
  •  Lighthouses
  •  Windows 
  •  Porches
  •  Landscaping
  •  Farms
  •  Entrance arches
  •  Fences...

As you can read there are for all types and tastes that fit perfectly with what you are looking for.


Up to this point you will know the reasons to choose brick to create pillars in your spaces. However, we will give you more reasons that reaffirm what has been previously described:

It does not need finishing. Unlike other materials such as concrete.

Adaptable. Thanks to its versatility, columns can be attractive, alone or mixed with other materials such as steel, wood. So you can have different designs and textures.

Little treatment. This is due to their high resistance.

Healthy. Since they have natural origin. In this sense, they lack toxic elements.
