Determine Type of Cabinet HUBBELL ® offers a variety of traffic signal cabinet bases that work with every NEMA and 170E cabinet manufactured today. The footprint of the cabinet will determine which base to install. Please see the Traffic Signal Cabinet Base Cross Reference Guide on pages 81 - 82 to choose the proper base for your application. If your cabinet is not listed, please feel free to contact your local HUBBELL ® representative. Throat sizes and insert locations can be tailored to meet your requirements.

Determine Work Pad Requirements Hubbell offers work pads to accompany all of the traffic signal cabinet bases. If the cabinet is to be installed on a surface other than a sidewalk, a work pad may be necessary to provide stable, dry footing. An alternative option to using a flat work pad in front of the traffic signal cabinet base is to use an enclosure instead. An enclosure serves as a splice box and the work pad also provides a skid resistant walking surface. Hubbell offers a wide variety of enclosure sizes and depths to choose from. Your local HUBBELL ® representative is available to assist you in selecting the appropriate enclosure and options to suit your application. 2

Many Departments of Transportation choose HUBBELL ® traffic signal cabinet bases when they have projects requiring new and retrofit installations of traffic control cabinets. HUBBELL ® traffic signal cabinet bases are less expensive than concrete to install, can be quickly installed by employees, can be relocated and can reduce potential injury and/or liability if struck by a vehicle. In this particular application, the DOT had previously poured concrete in place at an approximate cost of $1,000 for each traffic signal foundation. The installation process using concrete could take up to a week or more depending on weather and involved having to schedule around other work crews. The cost of the QUAZITE ® base was $500 (1/2 the cost of the alternative method) and installation time was reduced to one-half day.
