DECOTRIM® OPTIONS

Barnes DecoTrim® produce a range of contours for every application from mouldings through to columns and capitals.
Columns and Pilasters Round, fluted, square or tapered, columns are usually supplied in two halves with the centre cut out for a steel or timber post. A pilaster is a slightly-projecting column built into or applied to the face of a wall. Most commonly flattened or rectangular in form, pilasters can also take a half-round form or the shape of any type of column, including tortile.
Capitals, Bases and Abacus Capitals (from the Latin caput, 'head') forms the crowning member of a column or a pilaster. The capital projects on each side as it rises, in order to support the abacus and unite the form of the latter (normally square) with the circular shaft of the column. The bulk of the capital may either be convex, as in the oric order; concave, as in the inverted bell of the Corinthian order; or scrolling out, as in the Ionic order. These form the three principal types on which all capitals are based.
Bases are the bottom member of a column. The form normally complements the style of the crown of the column. An abacus is a flat slab forming the uppermost member or division of the capital of a column, above the bell. Its chief function is to provide a large supporting surface (wider than the capital) to receive the weight of the arch or the architrave above.
Window Surrounds Available as facings and sills, eyebrows and other various shapes. The image shows a corbel around windows.
Parapets A parapet is the illusion of a flat roof where the wall goes higher than the roof as in a Tuscan style house.
Soffit Mouldings Soffit mouldings are connection and edges where a vertical wall meets a horizontal surface usually the finish around the top of a wall.

External Dado Rails External dado rails go around the external wall of a building at various heights to create a more interesting and varied appearance. They break up the wall appearance to avoid large flat areas.

Dentils A dentil is one of a series of closely spaced, rectangular blocks that form a molding. The dentil molding usually projects below the cornice along the roof line of a building. However, the dentil molding can form a decorative band anywhere on the structure.
Sunhoods and Blades The image shows s a sunhood or blade with column and railing above.
Corbels, Cornices and Friezes A corbel is an architectural bracket or block projecting from a wall and supporting (or appearing to support) a ceiling, beam, or shelf. A cornice is the uppermost section of moldings along the top of a wall or just below a roof.
