A very strong, heavy duty, pad mount, dual height pedestal (single
channel) for buses, dump trucks, cement trucks, semi trucks, and other
large transportation vehicles (See "Vehicle Height Chart". The driver
may not have to pull back his mirror when approaching a pedestal at this
height.) Also mounts cameras, card readers, intercoms, keypads,
entry/exit buttons, biometric readers, telephone entry systems,
housings, and other access control devices. Most often installed for
automatic gate entry and exit, parking lot, and perimeter access
applications. Includes a face plate with universal holes patterns, heavy
duty base plate, and a sliding cover plate to hide the mounting bolts
that secure the base. Whereas a competing pedestal may be made from
.074" wall tube, this pedestal is made from .120" wall tube (62% more
steel) and is designed to withstand abuse from vandals or Mother Nature.
This pedestal has passed our facewind testing protocol which determined
it can survive sustained Category 5 hurricane force winds of 157 mph.
The pedestal is built using a single 3" x 3" channel from bottom to top
that allows easy wiring for both the lower and upper heads. The neck is
cut and welded to form an architectural design while allowing the wiring
to pass easily from the ground, through the pedestal, and into the
access control devices-- making installation very convenient.
Furthermore, this pedestal is first bead-blasted to eliminate
contaminants and blemishes, then powder coated with an outdoor rated
TGIC polyester finish with UV protectant to help promote longevity in
any weather condition.
Each pedestal includes carriage bolt hardware and is then wrapped in foam packaging and boxed individually for safe shipping.
Features of all Pedestals:
The faceplate design uses a universal hole pattern that fit hundreds
(if not thousands) of electronics on the market.
All pedestals are made using 11 gauge (.120") steel instead of the
lighter 14 gauge (.083") material others use. The use of heavy steel
reduces the chance of damage or wobbling after installation.
Pad-mount pedestals come with heavy duty cover plates at no extra
The powder-coating process used includes a 3-stage wash cycle,
drying, a thorough covering of an outdoor-use polyester powdercoat,
baking to powder's manufacturing specifications, and rapid cool down.
Pedestals are built to last in the harshest outdoor weather.
All pedestals are boxed individually with the necessary carriage bolt
hardware which eliminates the need to make a trip to the hardware store.
All In-Ground models contain a 1/2" drill/tapped conduit hole on the
back side of the post for easy wiring.
