Charge-M8 Debuts Protective Barriers for EV Chargers

Charge-M8, a luminary in electric vehicle charging solutions, is thrilled to present their most recent innovation in EV charger protection: a comprehensive range of barriers designed to shield critical EV charging stations from accidental vehicle collisions, while also meeting the stringent safety standards set forth in the UK.

This groundbreaking series introduces six distinctive products, encompassing the sturdy steel quad/tri post barriers, the versatile steel U barriers in both narrow and broad configurations, and the robust rubber wheel stops, available in two sizes. This innovative range is competitively priced, starting from a mere £29.97 to £268.97.

Charge-M8 now offers an effortless solution for safeguarding your indispensable EV charging infrastructure. Beyond the sale of these innovative barriers, Charge-M8 also provides a specialized installation and securing service, ensuring that your EV charging stations are not only well-protected but also securely safe for years to come.

In alignment with the BS IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition, specifically codes AG2-AG3, there is an advisory for the use of reinforced protection in areas prone to medium or high impacts. The IET Code of Practice for EV Charging Equipment Installation dictates that equipment in publicly accessible areas must be equipped to withstand impacts of at least AG2 severity, as outlined in BS76741 (18th Edition). Charge-M8 strongly recommends the strategic placement of solid tyre stops as a foundational layer of protection, complemented by impact barriers as a fail-safe for instances where tyre stops are overlooked or when a vehicle’s overhang exceeds their protective limit.

Julian Smith, CEO of Charge-M8 said: “Since launching Charge-M8 impact protection range we’ve received an overwhelming response from the trade and will expand the range further throughout 2024.  The high quality of the products and speed of delivery are the two areas that have been praised in particular which is very pleasing to hear.
The product range came into existence when we were trying to source a consistent supply of impact barriers and tyre stops at an acceptable cost. After numerous cancelled orders, mostly due to incorrect stock availability it seemed like the obvious thing to do was to source our own range and as well as using these for our own projects, offer the range to the wider EV installer network. We’re pleased to be able to help and give peace of mind that their assets are well protected.”

Although primarily designed for the protection of EV charging infrastructure, these barriers boast a wide range of applications, such as demarcating boundaries or establishing safety zones, making them ideal for a variety of settings including warehouses, storage areas, manufacturing sites, and parking facilities.

The entire range is available for immediate online ordering.
