This heavy duty, pad mount intercom pedestal can be used for for buses, dump trucks, cement trucks, semi trucks, and other large transportation vehicles. The driver may have to pull back his mirror when approaching a pedestal at this height, but we recommend using intercoms that don't require any button press from the driver.
Also mounts cameras, card readers, 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 face-wind testing protocol which determined it can survive sustained Category 5 hurricane force winds of 157 mph.
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 device-- making installation very convenient.
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 cost.
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.
