A beautifully brushed stainless steel bollard for mounting PDK card readers and other access control devices. Designed for decorative entryways, glass lobbies, and Class A spaces this item is particularly attractive to premium clients, high-end applications, and wherever aesthetics are paramount. The top is tapered for an architectural design. The rounded corners are mirror-polished. Each flat surface is also polished with a 180 grit #4 uniform finish. This pedestal comes with a PDK hole pattern included for fast assembly and installation. Different/more hole patterns/cutouts are available for a small charge. Unlike any of its competing rivals, no fasteners can be seen after installation-- this pedestal is mounted from the inside out using an access panel on the backside. Whereas a competing bollard will begin to wobble shortly after the initial installation (using a light weight 2-piece anchor-bollard design), this pedestal will hold steady regardless of the use and abuse because of its one-piece design and its heavy duty .25" thick base plate that is secured against the floor. This stainless bollard has passed our facewind testing protocol which determined it can survive sustained Category 5 hurricane force winds of 157 mph. Stainless steel pedestals are sought mainly for rust protection and beauty and this pedestal delivers without an exhorbitant cost. Each pedestal is wrapped in foam packaging and boxed individually for safe shipping. Customized cutouts, heights, and colors are available-- additional costs and lead times may apply. This pedestal is often sold with a mounting bolt kit.
