The IET have just published a new guide which addresses the electrical safety considerations and requirements to all electrical street furniture that may be expected to be found within the public realm.
New technologies and systems that provide a greater range of services to the public are now available to local authorities and other property asset owners and are easily enabled through their asset base. Such equipment includes, but is not limited to:
(a) public lighting, illuminated signage, bollards and infrastructure;
(b) architectural lighting (uplighters, under bench, art works etc.);
(c) electric vehicle charge points;
(d) market trader pillars (including event pillar requirements);
(e) event supplies;
(f) bus shelters; and
(g) ‘smart city’ and communication technologies and other ‘on-street’ electrical equipment (for example, electric bike chargers).
The guide can be downloaded for FREE via the following link, you will need to register on the IET site, which is also free and you will then reach the download.
