Buried distribution pedestals designed for superior outside plant protection of fiber optic splice and storage points

Pedlock BDO Series Fiber Pedestals are a key element of any FTTP solution. In both greenfield and brownfield fiber deployments, BDO Pedestals provide easy access to branch and drop splice while protecting and storing loose buffer tube fiber optic cables. The exclusive BDO fiber organizer allows technicians to mount splice trays and splitters securely with ample access to perform in-field splicing.

BDO Pedestals feature a non-metallic construction that offers superior OSP protection against floods, fire, dirt, insects and impact. An expanded-capacity split base is designed to easily install around conduit-fed cable bundles in new construction (excludes 14” diameter pedestals). BDO pedestals are an ideal solution for rehabilitation of metallic enclosures, and protection of co-located copper/fiber distribution points.

Charles BDO Pedestal Field Installation

Product  Features

  • Non-metallic PVC construction won’t rust, corrode, chip or fade. Internal components are protected from floods, fires, and wind-blown dust and debris
  • Two splice bracket options provide users with a choice between fiber only splicing (G Bracket) or copper/fiber splicing in a single enclosure (B Bracket)
  • Fiber organizer backboards accommodate all commonly used fiber splice trays with a 4”x9” footprint, 10” diameter and larger peds also accept 4”x12” or 6”x15” trays

  • Two-piece expanded capacity “split” base makes it easy for technicians to place the pedestal over conduit-fed cable bundles, and are an ideal solution for rehabilitating metallic enclosures
  • Bonding/grounding bar meets all RDUP requirements for proper bonding and grounding of service wires and cable sheaths
  • Lift-off dome provides 360º access to internal splicing area
  • Dome attaches securely to the base using a self-locking 216-hex head bolt lock
  • Vault mount base available
