What Makes the Difference with Our Electrical Pedestal Box
Dockside Power is well-known for using only electrical components of superior quality, for example those by Hubbell and Square D. We believe this to be a major contributing factor to the longevity of our pedestals. Many power pedestals—in fact, the vast majority of dock box options—are made out of plastic, which is not conducive to longevity. Instead, it makes for a weak pedestal, inappropriate for South Florida weather. While plastic pedestals may be cheaper, they are of lower value because you will have to replace them much sooner.
Dockside Power’s pedestals are made out of 1/8’’ aluminum, making them one of, if not the strongest pedestal on the market. Our receptacle or outlet welds are recessed at a 45 degree angle; not only does this not allow rain to flow over them but it also adds to the durability of the pedestal. The 45 degree angle better supports the weight of the electrical cord and also prevents individuals from running into the outlets.
If you further examine the design of our pedestals, you will also find they do not have 90 degree angles. All of our edges are rounded off to prevent the powder coating from chipping We have found that powder coating usually starts to chip away at sharp edges. Dockside eliminates that problem by meticulously rounding off all edges.
Ultimately, the unit is designed and built to ensure longevity. This has been tested and tried over long periods of time. As a matter of fact, last year one of Dockside Power’s marinas was put to the test. Located in Nassau, the marina contained over sixty power pedestals and was subject to Hurricane Matthew. While winds were recorded at 150 miles per hour, the power turned back on immediately after the hurricane. All the pedestals were not only intact, but ran perfectly.
