Flexible and adaptable: FlexiPole’s tailored approach to card payment machine mounting

Tailwind’s FlexiPole range has a unique approach to mounting payment terminals and PINPads. Unlike our competitors, our universal stands interface with a bespoke ‘back plate’ which is designed to fit each payment terminal or PINPad. This back plate, which we call a PEDPack, fits the payment machine perfectly leaving no gaps for criminals to access the back of the machine and offering a sleek silhouette at Point of Sale.

The back plate is designed to latch into the base of our FlexiPole stands. The latch mechanism holds the payment device firmly in place and can only be released by depressing the latch manually at the back of the stand. This ensures that even our most basic stands offer a level of security beyond our competitors. For full security, we recommend our SafeBase product which latches and locks the terminal in place with a key.

Both solutions are made possible by our unique ‘back plate’ – the PEDPack - which allows us to seamlessly integrate any design of terminal onto our FlexiPole stand system.

We work with our customers, partners and directly with OEM’s to develop new designs for terminals and PINPads to make sure that as many models as possible are supported with PEDPacks.

In the current climate, where security is such a hot topic for the payment industry, we know it’s more important than ever to offer secure solutions. A PEDPack with a SafeBase combined with any of our poles offers a level of security which meets PCI DSS requirement 9.9 for physical security and PCI P2PE requirements.

In 2015, we’ll be adding new PEDPacks to our range from January onwards. We’ll also create a bespoke PEDPack for any of our customers as long as our minimum order quantities are met, just contact us to find out more.
