If you’re seeking the most durable, advanced post option in post frame construction, explore the new advanced technique which combines the Perma-Column with the Integrity Post Disc.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Perma-Column concrete posts keep wood out of the ground
Exclusively available from Integrity Post Structures in Canada, Perma-Columns are precast concrete columns that allow for a concrete foundation on your post frame building. These 5’ precast concrete columns keep wood out of the ground, ensuring your building’s foundation will last.
The Perma-Column is the first product to combine the economy of post frame construction with the durability of a concrete foundation.
Perma-Columns use the latest in self-compacting concrete precasting technology to provide three times the strength of standard concrete using microfibers for added shock resistance and durability.
A corrosion inhibitor protects the rebar reinforcement from rusting, and a final admixture is added to give freeze/thaw protection. The technology incorporated in our special mix guarantees a lifetime of durability.
The wood column is attached to a “U” shaped steel bracket made of 1/4” steel with 1/2” thru-bolts and 1/4” lags. This bracket is robotically welded to steel reinforcement that runs the entire length of the column. All the steel we use is a premium high strength alloy purchased domestically.

Step 2: Combine with Integrity Post Disc for even weight distribution
Combine the Perma-Column with the new Integrity Post Disc technology for the most advanced post frame system in Canada. The injection-molded plastic disc supports the Perma-Column concrete post.
The disc, which sits under the Perma-Column concrete post, helps limit settlements thanks to its extended surface areas by evenly distributing the column loading to the surrounding sub-grade. The innovative honeycomb design ensures the disc stays in position under the post.
