Classic Mouldings products are made from natural resources – gypsum (plaster) and water. Our proprietary process ensures the best quality and allows us to achieve varying hardness for differing durability needs. Our products are non-hazardous and non-combustible.
Finished Classic Mouldings products can be painted to resemble any desired material. For example, a ceiling panel could be painted as woodgrain with antique burl panels within mahogany frames, and ebonized and gilt trim.
Our products can also be manufactured as single casts which otherwise would require multiple wooden mouldings. A large single-cast ceiling beam, for instance, eliminates the unsightly shrinkage or expansion-joint cracking that can occur with multiple wood mouldings. Extensive steel or wood framing can be eliminated by using engineered pre-cast hung panels with overlapping joints for rigidity and strength. Conventional support framing is eliminated through material formulation and design.
Classic Mouldings Inc. columns are made from hard gypsum cement. Engineered for stand-alone decorative use, they come in five classical patterns: Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian and Composite. Custom designs are also available.
Each column consists of a capital, a plain or fluted pilaster and a base, and can be purchased complete or as separate components. Columns can be split to house load-bearing pillars.
Corbels (Brackets) — Classic Mouldings Corbels can used in a classical manner to simulate beam support or creatively for artistic effect. Plaster Corbels may not be used for actual support.
Sconces — Plaster sconces are ornamental wall brackets used for concealing light bulbs. The bulb fixture itself should not be supported by the sconce.
Chair Rails — Classic Mouldings chair rails are made of dense gypsum cement to provide a more resilient surface for protecting walls from the damage of chair backs.

Complimentary corner and mid‐panel designs are also available, some of these designs can be manufactured with a different panel moulding design.
Domes — Classic Mouldings can manufacture custom sizes and shapes in addition to the extensive collection shown in our catalogue. All domes can take a plain or ornate light cove, mounted on the ceiling after installation of the dome. Profiles area available for rope or fluorescent lighting. If trim moulding is preferred to a light cove, any of the designs shown in our catalogue and many of the Panel Mouldings can be used.
