Rapid Foundation

Intelligent foundation systems for all rapid and ultra rapid charge dispensers

Providing a universal foundation for all EV rapid and ultra rapid charge units, this system incorporates the NAL Retention Socket. It is available with a range of adapter plates to fit bespoke designs and accommodate manufacturer-specific units.

If preferred, installed at the civil stage and before the delivery of units, Retention Sockets are sealed with a pedestrian plug to ensure footways remain free of trip hazards and open to the public. The relevant adapter plate is installed within the Retention Socket when ready for utilisation. The charging unit is secured to the adapter plate to improve access to utility cables. The foundation is fully future-proofed to allow for upgrades to keep pace with evolving technology and allow for fast and straightforward replacements.
