The columns are of a single piece construction and are trimmed with either a Tuscan Cap and Base or with an optional Attic Base installed around the column (see manufacturer’s literature for examples of cap and optional base). Structural load bearing columns are limited to the size and dimensions shown in Tables 1. Non-load-bearing columns are permitted in any size and length produced. 2.2 USE AND APPLICATION Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns are used as exterior and interior columns, both load-bearing and non-load-bearing, in buildings of combustible construction. 2.2.1 Structural The Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns are capable of supporting the respective concentric and eccentric axial loads pro- vided in Table 1 of this report. Allowable design capacities for the structural columns are based upon proper installa- tion as described in the manufacturer’s published installa- tion instructions and this report. For the concentric loads shown in Table 1 of this report, the column shall be installed with a bearing top plate that symmetrically distributes the load across the entire cross-section of the column. Where the eccentric loading values shown in Table 1 of this report are utilized, the beam shall bear directly on both walls of the column with a maximum offset of “e” as shown in the table. The base of the column shall bear entirely on a flat surface that provides suitable anchorage for the column and is capable of transferring all loads to the foundation. Where the installation instructions differ from this report, the performance of the structural column is outside the scope of this report. Non-structural columns shall be installed in accordance with the manufac- turer’s published installation instructions. 2.2.2 Surface-Burning Characteristics The Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns with a minimum thick- ness of 3 / 8 inch (9.5 mm) have a flame spread index of less than 25 and a smoke-developed index of less than 450. 3.0 CONDITIONS OF USE This report is limited to the applications and products as stated in this report. The ICC-ES Subcommittee on National Codes intends that the report be used by the code official to determine that the report subject complies with the code requirements specifically addressed, pro- vided that this product is installed in accordance with the following conditions: 3.1 Allowable design capacities for the Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns are based upon installation as described in the manufacturers published installation instructions and this report. Where the installation instructions differ from this report, the performance of the structural column is outside the scope of this report. Non-struc- tural columns shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s published installation instructions. 3.2 Permit applications specifying the Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns shall be accompanied by structural calcula- tions which indicate that the concentric or eccentric axial applied load exerted on the columns is less than or equal to the allowable axial capacity specified in Table 1 of this report.
