Commercial pedestals, part of Milbank’s enclosed controls line, are weather-resistant electrical enclosures consisting of a utility pull section with optional meter socket and a customer section containing distribution and control equipment. They can be used anytime underground power distribution is required. Milbank engineers specialize in custom-designing commercial pedestals to suit nearly any specification need.
The alternative to a commercial pedestal, or any enclosed control, is a strut and backboard system. In this system, individual components are mounted to strut, thus leaving them vulnerable to the elements and power theft. They also have a larger footprint and are visually disruptive to green spaces and cityscapes.
