72" Pad Mount Gooseneck Pedestal

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


This is the heaviest duty, 72" pad mount, steel gooseneck pedestal in the industry.  Reliable for school bus, city bus, box truck, dump truck, cement truck, and semi truck high card readers, intercoms, keypads, cameras, telephone entry, and other access control devices; perfect for fence and gate entryways. 

The electric gate pedestal reaches out 12” and stands tall 72" from ground to the top of the post.  Bus and truck drivers are able to easily reach out their window to use any device mounted on the face plate.  Pedestal CEO housings fit perfectly and can be used to mount more than one access control device.

The pedestal’s construction is very strong.  Our face wind testing has determined this pedestal mount will survive sustained Category 5 hurricane winds of 157mph (see PDF).  The pedestal is made from heavy duty, 1/8” thick (11-gauge) tubular 2"x2” square steel and welded to a thick .25” base plate.  In other words, this parking island pedestal will not bend, sway, or falter after your security installation is complete.

While raw, this 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!

Finally, 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.  When you walk away from the installation, you’ll notice the 72-9C-S pedestal leaves a finished look you will be proud of.

Each truck 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 with a non-bent neck (tube at the neck needs to be cut and welded at 90 degrees).  For all security pedestal variations call for price and lead time. 

Other 72” units include dual height models 72-9C-D and the 72-9C-DSP.

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