42" Pad Mount Pedestal (Using 3" Tube)

An electric gate pedestal stand for parking islands to mount card readers, cameras, and keypads


A heavy duty, steel gooseneck pedestal stands 42" tall from the ground to the top of the post and reaches out 12".  Reliable for car and pedestrian card readers, intercoms, keypads, cameras, telephone entry, and other access control devices. Pedestal CEO housings fit perfectly and can be used to mount more than one access control device.  Car drivers are able to easily reach out their windows to use any device mounted on the face plate.  Great for fence and gate entryways.  When you walk away from the installation, you"ll notice the 42-3-12 pedestal leaves a finished look you will be proud of.

The pedestal's construction is very strong. Face wind testing has determined this pedestal mount will survive sustained Category 5 hurricane winds of 157mph (see PDF).  In other words, this parking island pedestal will not bend, sway, or falter after your security installation is complete.  Made from heavy duty, 1/8" thick (11-gauge) tubular 3"x3" square steel and welded to a thick .25" base plate. Unlike some competing products, it's bottomed off with a sliding cover plate to hide the nuts and bolts used to mount the gooseneck pedestal post to concrete.  Instructions to pour concrete and mount pedestals using the L-Bolt-Kit or Stud Anchor Kit can be found here.

Furthermore, this raw card access pedestal is washed in a phosphate solution to prevent rust, heat dried, coated with an outdoor TGIC polyester black wrinkle powder coat finish with UV protectant, and then baked at 400°F for the most extreme weatherability.  And it looks great!

Each car intercom gooseneck stand is boxed individually, wrapped with foam protectors on top and bottom, and includes a package of carriage bolt hardware. It is shippable via UPS or FedEx.

This pad mount card reader pedestal is stocked in black wrinkle but is also available in safety yellow, white, or electrical gray colors. Also available in aluminum or stainless steel. For all security pedestal variations call for price and lead time.

Pedestal CEO has the world's best portfolio of gooseneck pedestals.
