Charge-M8 Announces Launch of EV Charging Station Protection Barriers

Charge-M8, a trailblazer in the realm of electric vehicle charging, is proud to announce the introduction of their latest line of protection barriers for EV charging stations. These barriers are designed to shield essential EV charging units from the risk of accidental vehicle impacts, ensuring they align with UK safety regulations.

The newly launched range features six standout products, including the robust steel quad/tri post barriers, versatile steel U barriers in both narrow and wide forms, and durable rubber wheel stops available in two sizes. This comprehensive range is offered at prices ranging from an affordable £29.97 to £268.97.

Charge-M8 has made it more convenient than ever to ensure the safety and longevity of your vital EV charging infrastructure. Alongside the sale of these premium products, Charge-M8 also extends a full installation and securing service, providing peace of mind that your EV charging stations are fully protected and reliably safe for the long term.

The BS IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition, specifically codes AG2-AG3, recommend the installation of reinforced protection in areas with a potential for medium to high impact. The IET Code of Practice for EV Charging Equipment Installation mandates that publicly accessible charging stations be equipped to withstand a minimum impact severity of AG2, as defined in BS76741 (18th Edition). Charge-M8 advises the strategic use of solid tyre stops as an initial safeguard, with impact barriers serving as a comprehensive secondary protection for instances where tyre stops are either bypassed or when the vehicle’s overhang extends 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.”

Though designed with the protection of EV charging equipment in mind, these barriers are versatile enough for a range of applications, such as creating demarcation lines or safety zones, making them ideal for use in various settings including warehouses, storage units, manufacturing facilities, and car parks.

The entire product line is available for immediate purchase online.
