Rural Development Utilities Program (RDUP) Accepted non-metallic buried distribution 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 5 sizes: BD2 (4” dia.), BD3 (6” dia.), BD4 (8” dia.), BD5 (10” 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.
