Planning is now even more individual than before, particularly for free-standing pedestals. The new profiles permit considerably larger dimensions, while the floor bracket extending at the front and back ensures stability. Furthermore, in future it will be possible to install functional elements – such as an additional camera – on both sides of communication pedestals. The new support system also permits the surface mounting of Steel systems; this is useful in cases where damage to the building shell has to be avoided. Restrictions exist here at most for large systems due to their weight and in the case of letterboxes and card readers. Otherwise the complete functionality of Siedle Steel will in future also be available for surface-mounted installation.
