Reduced Labor and Material Requirements

One of the standout features of the PP Series Pedestal Posts is their two-piece design, which significantly reduces labor and material requirements compared to traditional stick-built solutions. This not only saves time and money but also minimizes disruption during installation.

Enhanced Impact Protection

Unlike tubular raceways, Orbit's steel stand provides superior impact protection for conductors and devices. This added durability ensures the longevity of your rooftop power infrastructure, even in challenging conditions.

Streamlined Roof Penetrations

Orbit's Pedestal Posts allow conduit to be routed below the roofline, minimizing the number of roof penetrations required. This reduction in penetrations not only preserves the integrity of your rooftop but also enhances its overall aesthetic appeal.

Seismic Calculations Available

Safety is paramount, especially in regions prone to seismic activity. Orbit offers seismic calculation requests to ensure that your rooftop power infrastructure meets the highest safety standards.
