New solution to protect EV charge points
UK impact protection equipment firm Brandsafe has launched new EV charge point protection and safety solutions.
The range features durable and impact-resistant bollards, wheel stops and Armco barriers, designed to protect new or current EV charge point installations from vehicles in car park areas.
For applications classed as light and medium duty, such as private office or public car parks, ImpactSAFE Protection Posts are available in either 600mm, 800mm or 1000mm height options, providing added safety and visibility for vehicle drivers when they are either reversing up to or pulling alongside a charge point.
And for heavy-duty applications, where there is a higher risk of impact damage, ImpactSAFE Heavy Duty Bollards are available in 1000mm, 1300mm or 1600mm height options, and feature shock absorbing rubber buffers to deflect the force of impact away from critical areas.
Vehicle traffic-routing Armco safety barriers can also be installed in industrial areas to protect either individual or multiple charge points, and come with hardwearing and weather resistant polyethylene corner and end sections to further protect electric vehicle charge points from collision damage.
Paul Roehricht, UK strategic account manager for Brandsafe, said: “The EV market in the UK is growing rapidly and operators need to protect their charge points from damage and loss. Our new range of added-value impact-resistant solutions offers a comprehensive, cost-effective and accessible way to safeguard these investments.”
