Lightweight Composite Material Buried Mounting Platforms for Macro Site Installations

Charles Industries' innovative Composite Pad (CPAD) replace poured-in-place or pre-cast concrete pads. The CPAD enables carriers to more rapidly deploy their network by eliminating days of project work for poured-in-place concrete pads, and the heavy equipment requirements and safety concerns of handling and transporting pre-cast concrete pads. At a fraction of the weight of concrete, CPAD provides a rigid platform for mounting enclosures that house equipment and batteries. The main advantage of the CPAD is the ability to utilize the open space on the bottom side of the pad as additional workspace, helping route RF cables and providing economical fiber slack storage. The CPAD offers these benefits at a comparable cost to a similarly sized pre-cast pad before it is transported to the installation site. 

CPAD Macro Site Modular Mounting Platforms
include a 2-bay platform that can be expanded with either 1-bay or 2-bay extension modules for use with Charles' Macro Site cabinet solutions including CUBE PM639, CUBE Battery Backup and CUBE Site Support enclosures.

CPAD are also available for diesel generators from Generac, Polar, Kohler and MTU; allowing placement of all Macro Site components on CPAD platforms and completely eliminating the need to pour concrete at Macro Sites!

Additionally, a universal CPAD, which can be customized in the field, is available to support cabinet solutions from other manufacturers.
