Power Pedestals for Marina

Comsen Power Pedestal at Marina

In this blog, we will discuss about Power Pedestals for Marina and how Comsen manufactures premium pedestals for Marina.

Of course, Comsen manufactures high quality service pedestals for all sorts of locations and conditions, but marinas, in particular, have their own special set of circumstances which make manufacturing products for the marina environment a speciality endeavour.

The obvious factor, of course, is salt water! Marinas and even private jetties by their very nature expose products like marina power pedestals to the harshness of salt and this requires that certain steps be taken to ensure longevity and reliability. All Comsen marina electrical pedestals are manufactured from either UV-stabilised, impact-resistant ASA plastic or, in the case of our Comsen Extreme range, marine-grade and anodised 6106 aluminium. A lot of research, thought and planning goes into our range of marina service pedestals, and not only in regards to the pedestals themselves. All electricals used are highest quality, IP66 or better products, specifically designed for harsh, outdoor conditions. The fact that we’ve been manufacturing them for close to 40 years attests to their durability and value for money.

There are plenty of other factors that make manufacturing marina dock power pedestals challenging. Some of these include movement of jetties with the tides, a large variety of power requirements from “normal” single phase outlets right up to medium and large amperage three phase power (some of those super yachts are seriously impressive and like a floating luxury hotel!), and the fact that our products also need to look good to suit the often glamorous surrounds of the modern marina!

Another important point is that marina service pedestals do have a separate set of Australian design regulations compared to caravan park or campsite power heads. These are very important and designed to keep everyone safe.

So next time you see a Marina, or private jetty, drag your eyes away from the gorgeous boats and have a bit of a look at the service pedestals that provide those boats with their power and water needs. They really are the unsung heroes of the modern marina!
