Purposeful design

Take a look at some of the design features which make Kerb-e the most viable on-street solution.

01

Volume

Kerb-e does away with the unnecessary. It's small because it doesn't need to be large. By leveraging the highway infrastructure to its advantage Kerb-e saves on material which keeps costs down. No big housing, no expensive paint job, no vandal whiteboard. 

02

Supply Chain Flexibility

Kerb-e uses an innovative modular component system that ensures our design isn't reliant on any one specific part. If a supplier of power relays is experiencing production problems the design can be easily adapted to accommodate a different relay. As EV infrastructure becomes the focus for everyone, flexibility is key.

03

Twin Port

Two port chargers are obviously beneficial. For pop-up chargers or those that rely on attachments, the benefit of being flush is severely diminished by twin ports, but single ports mean twice as many installations. Kerb-e uses a port design integrated into the housing that accepts widely available contacts meaning our design isn't reliant on an imported charging port.

04

Minimum Excavation 

Subterranean congestion is a huge challenge for on-street EV charging. Current chargers require deep foundations because pillars are easily toppled, or deeper still because they retract into the ground. In busy urban areas there isn't the space but Kerb-e utilises previously unused space (and not very much of it.)

Quick release

Our modular component system isn't only flexible, it's quick release too. A faulty unit can be repaired in minutes by sliding out the defective component compartment and sliding in a working one. The defective unit can then be assessed back at the factory and the broken component replaced, with an alternative  (better) component if need be.
