Charge-M8, a frontrunner in the field of EV charging, is proud to announce their latest array of impact defence barriers for EV chargers, aimed at shielding essential EV charging stations from unintended vehicle collisions, in line with UK safety requirements.

This fresh series features six innovative products, including steel quad/tri post barriers, steel U barriers in both narrow and wide formats, and rubber wheel stops in two sizes, with prices starting from an economical £29.97 to £268.97.

Charge-M8 simplifies the task of securing your valuable EV charging installations. They not only offer these products for purchase but also provide a comprehensive installation and securing service, ensuring that your EV charging stations are effectively protected and safe for a considerable duration.

The BS IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition, with codes AG2-AG3, recommend the application of reinforced protection in areas susceptible to medium or high impacts. The IET Code of Practice for EV Charging Equipment Installation necessitates that publicly accessible charging equipment be fortified to withstand impacts of at least AG2 severity, as stated in BS76741 (18th Edition). Charge-M8 suggests employing sturdy tyre stops as an initial defence mechanism, with impact barriers as a secondary line of protection for instances where tyre stops are not observed or when a vehicle’s overhang goes beyond their protective range.

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.”

Designed primarily for EV equipment protection, these barriers also have a wide range of applications, such as defining boundaries or establishing safe zones, making them suitable for warehouses, storage locations, factories, and car parks.

The product line is available for instant online ordering.
