BDO-ET Pedestals (Sealed Fiber Terminal Block)

Buried distribution pedestals designed to house and protect sealed fiber terminal blocks

Broadband Equity Access & Deployment Program (BEAD) and Build America, Buy America Act (BABAA) compliant*

Pedlock BDO-ET Series Fiber Pedestals are designed as an affordable, above-grade alternative to housing and protecting sealed fiber terminal blocks. In FTTP applications, BDO-ET Pedestals offer many advantages over grade level boxes, including easier installation, greater accessibility, and more flexibility in placement.

BDO-ET Pedestals feature a non-metallic construction that offers superior OSP protection against floods, fire, dirt, insects and impact. Specially designed terminal mounting plates accept most major manufacturers’ 4, 6, 8 and 12 port sealed fiber terminal blocks, with a version (BDO-ETS) that includes an integrated splice tray holder.

An expanded-capacity split base is designed to easily install around conduit-fed cable bundles in new construction. BDO-ET pedestals are an ideal solution for rehabilitation of metallic enclosures.
