42" Stainless Steel Pad Mount Gooseneck Pedes

Hurricane proof, stainless steel, pedestal for card readers, intercoms, and keypads


The 42-9C-SS is a cost effective stainless steel pedestal for card readers, intercoms, keypads, telephone entry systems and housings for parking control areas.

This particular card reader pedestal is more stable than competing units because it will not bend, sway, or falter after your security installation is complete.  It is made from a light duty, 15-gauge tube, 2” round, #304 stainless steel, a 10-gauge 4"Wx4"H face plate, and a robust .25" base plate.  It will withstand most abuse whether from pedestrians or Mother Nature.  Matter of fact, the 42-9C-SS gooseneck passed our face wind testing which determined that it can survive sustained Category 5 hurricane winds of 157mph (see PDF).  Our competitors don’t even make a stainless steel pedestal option.  Furthermore, Pedestal CEO goosenecks are bent with the tightest 6" center radius using a state-of-the-art mandrel bending die system in which the neck is formed uniformly, without collapsing the underside of the neck.  You may see competing gooseneck pedestals with very long necks, bent to very loose tolerances, which are not preferred by professional installers.  Pedestal CEO is the leader in pedestal manufacturing and we pay attention to the details.

As with all Pedestal CEO stands, these stainless card reader pedestals maintain excellent weatherability and wont rust.

Finally, unlike some competing products, it’s bottomed off with a sliding cover plate to hide the nuts and bolts used to mount the pedestal to concrete.  When you walk away, having finished your 42-9C-SS installation, you’ll notice this gooseneck pedestal looks clean and professional.  And we can provide stainless hoods and stainless steel housings to match.

Each stainless steel mounting post 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 specific access pedestal is stocked in brushed #4 finish stainless steel but is also available in black (model 42-9C), white (model 42-9W), safety yellow (model 42-9Y), and electrical gray colors.  It is also available in brushed aluminum (model 42-9C-ALUM).   Heights, arm distances, face plates, and more can be customized.  Gauge of material can be increased if square tubing is used.  Just ask for price and availability.  If you prefer an in-ground or wet cement burial post then take a look at the 64-9C-IN or 72-9C-IN, also available in stainless.

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