Perma-Column Technology: The Stately Difference

DATE: Wednesday, September 30, 2022

The main area of concern, when it comes to the lifespan of a pole barn, is underground. Typically, the wooden posts of a pole barn are buried underground, making them susceptible to damage and rot. Stately Post-Frame buildings are constructed differently. In this blog, we will explain how our use of Perma-Column Sturdi-Wall® brackets provides the following benefits:


  • ·Ultra-strong connection between concrete and wood
  • ·Rot prevention by keeping all wood above-grade
  • ·Corrosion resistance through via EpoxZi Shield coating
  • Faster permitting and approval

Ultra-Strong Connection

The Perma-Column Sturdi-Wall® brackets we use are installed while the concrete is still wet. The concrete then cures, encapsulating the robotically-welded, 100% American-made, steel in the process. This establishes the strongest connection possible between the post and the foundation. Compared to conventional techniques, this method results in a pole barn that will stand stronger and last longer.

Rot Prevention

Typically, the wooden posts of a pole barn are buried underground, making them susceptible to damage and rot. Utilizing Perma-Column Sturdi-Wall® brackets keeps all wood out of the ground and above-grade, thereby preventing dangerous rot and decay – which is the number one threat to the longevity of your post-frame structure. Our barns take advantage of this technology to increase their lifespan and durability.

Corrosion Resistance

With the likelihood of foundational wood rot drastically reduced, one may wonder about the possibility of corrosion of the brackets themselves. Rest assured knowing that each bracket has a special EpoxZi Shield powder coat applied that prevents corrosion. In fact, extensive laboratory testing, including salt-spray testing of 2,500 hours, has been performed to ensure effective corrosion resistance. Another benefit of the technology inside every Stately Pole Barn.

Faster Permitting

The brackets we use meet international building standards. According to the manufacturer’s website, The International Code Council Evaluation Service evaluated Sturdi-Wall® and Sturdi-Wall Plus® and certified they are compliant with the 2018 and 2015 International Building Code (IBC)® and the 2018 and 2015 International Residential Code (IRC)®.
