The CPAD engineered composite material construction is lightweight while providing the same high strength and high impact resistance of concrete. The reduction in weight eliminates the heavy equipment requirements and safety concerns of handling and transporting pre-cast concrete pads, reducing installation costs and man hours. Since it is light weight and easy to move, CPADs can be completely installed with small or even one person crews to facilitate social distancing.
CPAD provide a stable, rigid platform for mounting EVC stations. Besides facilitating easier and faster installation, the CPAD allows the open space on the bottom side of the pad to be used as additional workspace, helping route any needed power or data cables to the station and providing slack storage.
The advanced composite materials used to make the Charles Composite Pads meet the chemical resistance, flammability, brush-fire, UV exposure, impact resistance, and water absorption requirements of ANSI/SCTE-77. Multiple pad dimensions are available to meet specific equipment/site sizes and requirements.
