They can have top, bottom and intermediate reveals incorporated in them.

Our engineering and fabrication facility is state of the art utilizing the latest in computer software and fabrication technology and roll-forming equipment to ensure unparalleled quality and service.

Column covers are typically attached to a sub-framing system consisting of steel studs and clip angles attached to the structural column structure. They can also be attached directly to structural steel columns and concrete columns. Column wraps also offer protection against wear, durability, and savings in both maintenance time and costs. DAMS Incorporated is a custom manufacturer of column covers and other architectural metal products.

Installation is carried out by experienced installers and by the appropriate subcontractor according to specifications and approved shop drawings.
