A sturdy, cost effective, pad mount, gooseneck, card reader pedestal for curbs, entry/exit islands, and parking lots. Also mounts 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 mounting post 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 mounting post has passed facewind testing protocol which determined it can survive sustained Category 5 hurricane force winds of 157 mph.
The gooseneck is bent with the tightest 6 center radius using a state-of-the-art mandrel bending die in which the curve is formed uniformly without collapsing the underside of the neck. Compared to competing pedestals with very long necks and/or loose bending tolerances, this is the design preferred by professional installers.
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.
