Lithium-ion battery storage

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Denios has introduced Lithium-Ion Stations which are designed specifically for storing lithium-ion batteries.

They are meant for storing new, questionable, damaged, defective, or end-of-life lithium-ion batteries typically found in small handheld devices. The stations are suited for manufacturers incorporating Li-ion batteries into their products, as well as facilities using them.

Available in two standard sizes, they allow the storage storing and transportation of batteries from 1 KG to 10KG up to 100W, which are typically used in power tools, e-bikes, medical devices, laptops, tablets, mobile devices, forklifts, cars, and more.

With two hours of fire resistance, and integrated forklift pockets for easy relocation, these purpose-built containers protect against fire hazards due to thermal runaway, deep discharge, mechanical deformation, or chemical reaction.

Each unit includes thermo-dissipative media (class D fire), and visual identification on all sides to alert emergency personnel of contents and hazards. They follow guidelines within NFPA 704, IFC 608, FM 5-55 and applicable EPA regulations.

The stations are welded for a long service life, with integrated vents for passive ventilation.  Lockable, hinged lid and doors keep the contents safe from unauthorized personnel.  Shelving and fire extinguishers are optional.
