Retention Sockets for EV Charging Furniture

Utilised to install signage and protective bollards and specified to enhance the longevity of EV charging equipment, the NAL non-illuminated Retention Socket enables a swift and improved installation process whilst facilitating a simple removal and replacement to optimise space or, in the event of a collision, with a key and spanner.

With the capacity to be shortened on-site, Retention Sockets can be installed before the arrival of furniture and sealed with a pedestrian plug to eradicate trip hazards, guaranteeing sites remain operational.  With no requirement for cable entry, sockets are suitable for all types of non-illuminated street furniture and are provided with a lifetime foundation warranty.
