A beautifully brushed stainless steel bollard for decorative entryways, glass lobbies, Class A spaces, and premium clients. Meant to mount card readers, door stations, cameras, intercoms, keypads, entry/exit buttons, biometric readers, and other access control devices. Most often installed for aesthetics in high-end applications. The rounded corners are mirror-polished and each flat surface is polished with a 180 grit #4 finish. The top is tapered for an architectural design. This pedestal comes with a single gang cutout with two mounting holes. More 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 heavy duty stainless steel tower will hold steady regardless of the use and abuse because of its one-piece design and its .25" thick base plate that get 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. (We even tested it up to 600 mph and it only began to flex 2mm.) 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 and possibly with additional cutouts.
