Non-metallic copper buried distribution splice pedestals 

Charles Pedlock line of non-metallic, non-conductive pedestals has proven itself in the field for more than 25 years. Pedlock BD Series Pedestals provide the flexibility, durability and reliability to be the all-purpose splice closure for independent telephone companies that require an RDUP-accepted pedestal.

The BD Series was designed to provide a variety of feature-rich, non-metallic pedestals with the lowest total cost of ownership. Charles’ engineering team listened to our independent telephone company customers and responded by creating an entire line of pedestals designed for ease of installation and maintenance in addition to providing the highest standard of environmental protection.

BD Series pedestals are available in 6  sizes: BD2 (4” dia.), BD3 (6” dia.), BD4 (8” dia.), BD5 (10” dia.), BD6 (12" dia.), and BD7 (14” dia.). Charles' BD pedestals feature a common dome height across all sizes, allowing technicians to standardize the length of exposed cable loops and cable ends during cable placement.

BD-E Square (Conduit) Base Pedestal Features

BD3-E, BD4-E, BD5-E & BD6-E
  • Non-metallic PVC construction won’t rust, corrode, chip or fade. Internal equipment is protected from floods, fires, and wind-blown dust and debris
  • Expanded-capacity base increases useable area and easily accepts conduit bundles. The base’s design increases pedestal stability and eliminates the need for metallic mounting stakes in most soil conditions 
  • Split base design allows for easy and speedy access to cable/wire entrance area. Four 1Ό” circular knockouts and one 4½” x 1½” rectangular drop cable access port knockout below the ground-line provide easy exits for service wires without disturbing gravel or pedestal base fill 
  • Two splice bracket options (Universal U-Backboard and Splice S-Bracket) provide users with a choice in splicing arrangements. 
  • Bonding/grounding bars meet all industry requirements for proper bonding and grounding of service wires and cable sheaths 
  • Self-locking dome with positive alignment guides ensures quick opening and takes the guesswork out of secure closing. A 216-cupped bolt lock prevents unauthorized entry

 

SQUARE (CONDUIT) BASE FEATURES
  • Split design allows pedestal to be easily placed around existing splice points, ideal for rehabilitation of metal enclosures 
  • Base design increases pedestal stability in loose soils, eliminates the need for a mounting stake in most installations, and prevents frost heave 
  • Rail mount system secures or releases splice bracket to base quickly and easily without the need of tools 
  • Five service wire knockouts (four circular and one rectangular) provide multiple service wire exit points 
  • Stake mounting holes on three of the base’s sides provide flexibility in placement of mounting stake 
  • Drop wire channel provides easy drop installations without opening base and disturbing installed gravel and moisture barrier 
  • 216-cupped bolt locks and shoulder pin attachments join base halves 
  • Embossed ground line helps installers ensure proper placement
