The BS IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition, through codes AG2-AG3, advise on the necessity of reinforced protection in potential medium or high impact zones. The IET Code of Practice for EV Charging Equipment Installation specifies that equipment in publicly accessible areas must be equipped to resist impacts of a minimum AG2 severity, as outlined in BS76741 (18th Edition). Charge-M8 recommends the use of heavy-duty tyre stops as a preliminary defence, followed by impact barriers as a secondary measure for situations where tyre stops are ignored or when a vehicle’s overhang exceeds their protective limits.
Although conceived for the protection of EV equipment, these barriers are versatile enough for a multitude of applications, such as demarcating areas or creating safety zones, making them ideally suited for warehouses, storage sites, industrial areas, and parking lots.
The range is available for direct online order, with immediate dispatch.
