I guess the first question is: What is a Power Head or Service Pedestal?

Well, they both supply utilities such as electrical power and water to places where you can’t normally get those utilities. These places include Caravan Parks, Marinas, Commercial Wharves, Public Parks, Private Jetties and lots of other places.

We generally refer to our pole mounted units as Power Heads and our full-bodied units as Service Pedestals. They are often known in the industry by other names, such as Bollards, Poles etc, but whatever you call them, they are a very important to daily life for a lot of people.

If you’ve ever been caravanning, camping, boating or a host of other great activities Aussies love, there’s a good chance you’ve used our products…and they are not restricted to supplying just power and water – we can fit our Power Heads and Service Pedestals with lights, data outlets, charging ports and even Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations!

There are quite a few different products on the market. We here at Comsen have at least seven different options and we can customise every one of them to suit the requirements of whatever situation they will be installed into. We’ve been in business for around 40 years, so we are among the most experienced in the country and can advise on all aspects of these Power Heads and Service Pedestals and how they can work for you.

Our Power Heads and Service Pedestals have been developed and improved over many years, which is important since they are always installed in the great outdoors. We all know the harshness of the Australian sun along with 24/7 elements such as wind, rain, heat and salt water and what these conditions are capable of doing to products left out in those elements. That’s why we are always proud to see our Power Heads and Service Pedestals standing strong after many, many years on sites from coastal areas through to deserts right across Australia!

If you have need of any of these Power Heads or Service Pedestals, please feel free to contact me and I’ll personally go through your special requirements so we can custom make the perfect product for you.
