Launch of New EV Charger Protection Barriers by Charge-M8

Charge-M8, specialists in electric vehicle charging, are pleased to launch a new line of protection barriers for EV chargers, designed to safeguard crucial EV charging units against unintended vehicle impacts, whilst ensuring adherence to UK safety norms.

The lineup introduces six pioneering products, including steel quad/tri post barriers, steel U barriers in both narrow and wide variants, and rubber wheel stops offered in two sizes. The range is priced from an accessible £29.97 up to £268.97.

Charge-M8 has made it simpler than ever to protect your significant EV charging assets. Not only do they provide these products for sale, but they also offer a comprehensive fitting and securing service, ensuring that your EV charging facilities are robustly protected and secure for the long term.

In accordance with the BS IET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition, codes AG2-AG3, it is advised to use reinforced protection in locations at risk of medium or high impact. The IET Code of Practice for EV Charging Equipment Installation mandates that equipment in publicly accessible areas be equipped to withstand impacts of at least AG2 severity, as defined in BS76741 (18th Edition). Charge-M8 recommends the strategic placement of durable tyre stops as a primary defence, complemented by impact barriers as a secondary safeguard for situations where tyre stops are bypassed or when the vehicle’s overhang exceeds their protection.


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.”

While the barriers are crafted with EV protection in mind, their utility extends beyond, suitable for various applications such as marking boundaries or creating safety areas, making them ideal for warehouses, storage spaces, industrial settings, and car parks.

The range is ready for immediate online ordering. For bulk orders or to avail discounts, installers can reach out to the Technical Experts at Charge-M8, who are on hand to help identify your specific needs. Contact us by phone or fill in the enquiry form on the Charge-M8 website for more details.
