Mobility Scooter Charging Units


return to Mobility Scooter Storage & Charging >>

The original scooter store, metroSTOR PSM is designed to provide users with a secure, easy-to-use storage and charging facility, protected at all times from the elements within a compact footprint. The unobtrusive design means the metroSTOR PSM can be positioned in accessible locations close to buildings without undue visual impact.

metroSTOR PSM is manufactured in three product variants from 1050mm width modules where space on site is restricted, to 1600mm width for the larger Class 3 mobility scooters or where users will require additional space for access. metroSTOR PSM units can be specified with doors left or right-handed to suit narrow access paths, and are available as CAD blocks / BIM models for ease of planning and site layout design.

This highly flexible specification extends to a class leading choice of panel types including fire-resistant options, enabling metroSTOR PSM units to add a welcome architectural impact to a scheme in addition to fulfilling a vital storage function.

metroSTOR PSM structures are designed and manufactured in the UK by Streetspace under BS EN 9001:2015, BS EN 9001:2015 and BS EN 1090 accredited processes. Hot dip galvanised coating is standard with colour powder coat options. Each unit is supplied with fully tested, factory assembled electrical panels containing IP rated sockets for chargers and PIR activated LED interior lighting; external lighting can be added as an optional extra.

Mobility scooters inside buildings can represent a serious fire risk. They are a potential source of ignition, they are highly combustible and if they are parked in hallways, they can be obstructing fire escapes. Many social landlords have banned scooters from being stored or charged inside residents’ flats or communal spaces to address fire risk assessment actions.

The National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) have developed statutory guidance to reduce fire risk associated with mobility scooter battery charging and storage. The recommendation is that if a fire-resistant storage area cannot be created within a building, then secure storage with provision for charging should be provided at least six metres from dwellings.

Installing metroSTOR PSM mobility scooter charging units provides a solution to address this guidance. To reduce fire risk if units cannot be located outside of the six metre recommended distance due to site constraints, metroSTOR PSM units can be specified with fire-resistant wall and roof cladding options, with intumescent seals incorporated into the eaves detail.
