72" Wet Cement Pedestal Post

Heavy gauge, burial in ground pedestal post for card readers, intercoms, and keypads


The 72-9C-IN is the taller of two in-ground pedestal mounts meant to hold card readers, intercoms, keypads, telephone entry systems and housings.  Whereas the 72-9C-IN is the tallest in-ground unit, it has a shorter, more cost-effective companion pedestal model 64-9C-IN which allows just a little less length on the post to bury into the ground or to stand a little shorter from ground level.

Both pedestal models are more stable than competing counterparts because these will not bend, sway, or falter after your security installation is complete.  They are made from heavy duty, 1/8” thick (11-gauge) tubular 2”x2" square steel and a 10-gauge 4"Wx4"H face plate, it will withstand most abuse whether from pedestrians or Mother Nature.  Matter of fact, the 72-9C-IN or 64-9C-IN pedestals passed our face wind testing which determined that they can survive sustained Category 5 hurricane winds of 157mph (see PDF).  Our competitors units made from weaker .074” thin (14-gauge) tube can’t make this claim.  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 wet cement card reader pedestals are washed in a phosphate solution to prevent rusting, 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.

The 72-9C-IN comes with two holes drilled and tapped on the back of the post at 23.57" and 29.75" high to easily mount a 1/2" NPT conduit coupler.  The post is tall enough to allow 22-28" to be inserted into the ground or wet cement to provide long term stability.  When you walk away from the installation, you’ll notice this in ground intercom pedestal looks clean and professional.

Each pedestal 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 wet cement mounting post is stocked in black wrinkle but is also available in safety yellow, white, and electrical gray colors.  Ask for price and availability.  This is just one of many in ground mounting posts that are available.  If you prefer a pad mount version of this unit then take a look at the 42-9C or 48-9C.

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