Vault mount options including Charles Vault Mount Bases and 3rd Party Charles-Compatible BGE Lids and Covers

Charles Industries' pedestals are available to order with low-profile bases designed for mounting to below grade enclosures (BGE), including vaults, handholes, and "flower pot" type designs. Several major BGE manufacturers have designed covers and lids specifically to fit Charles’ pedestal bases.  Charles Industries pedestals may be ordered with a vault mount base option that includes all necessary hardware (L-brackets, nuts, bolts and washers) to attach the base to most 3rd party BGE covers.

For more information on 3rd party BGE manufacturers that offer Charles-compatible BGE lids and covers, please call your Charles representative or (847) 806-6300.
