48" Steel Touch Plate Bollard

A handicap actuator post made from thick steel tube to mount door opener buttons and readers


Simple is best.

This black steel bollard post is ideal for handicap actuator push plates, card readers, and other door opener devices.   As one of many bollard-style pedestals in the industry, this tower is sturdy and strong and its square surface area make it ideal for door opening applications where more than one device is required.   

Its construction is solid as a rock, made with heavy duty materials including stout 11-gauge, 1/8” wall thick 4"x4" tube (not flimsy sheet metal) that withstands over 50,000 lbs per inch.  Matter of fact, it is so strong our wind testing shows it will survive sustained category 5 hurricane winds by tearing the concrete from the ground before it will bend or break– so don’t worry about its ability to stand the test of time!  And as it is with all Pedestal CEO stands, these pad mount bollards are washed in a phosphate solution to prevent rusting, then heat dried, coated with an outdoor TGIC polyester black wrinkle powder coat finish with UV protectant, and baked at 400°F for the most extreme weatherability.

Installers appreciate such a basic post that can be used in such a wide variety of applications.  This touch plate bollard pedestal is stocked in black wrinkle with no card reader mounting holes; however, it is also available in safety yellow, white, or electrical gray colors as well as brushed aluminum or #4 finish stainless steel.  Customization including different heights, adding access panels, providing custom cutouts, drilling & tapping mounting holes, etc. can be added.  For all bollard variations please call for price and lead time.  Instructions to pour concrete and mount pedestals using the L-Bolt-Kit or Stud Anchor Kit can be found here.
