Lithium-ion batteries are an integral part of everyday life, but also represent a risk that is difficult to estimate. Although lithium-ion batteries are relatively safe in regular operation, they react to rising temperatures with pressure build-up in the cell, intensive emission of flammable gases, cell fire, and even explosive burning of the battery (thermal runaway). Preventive measures for fire protection and early fire detection are correspondingly important. The Düperthal safety storage cabinets Battery line type 90 acc. to DIN EN 14470-1 (resp. DIN EN 1363-1), are specially designed for the high requirements of safe storage and charging of Li-ion batteries. If Li-ion batteries self-ignite due to malfunction, a fire will start in the cabinet. In this scenario, the cabinet doors close automatically, a special mechanism locks and closes the doors. Opening by persons and a possible backdraft is prevented. Only authorised experts, e.g. fire brigade, can unlock the doors in this case. With classification type 90 and the explosion-like burning of the batteries inside the cabinet tested by the Fraunhofer Institute, the Battery line offers double-tested fire protection and sufficient time for evacuation and fire fighting.

The Battery station models are additionally prepared with earthed sockets and a fused power supply for chargers ready to plug in. Via the prepared ventilation system of the Battery line, the heat energy generated by charging can also be safely dissipated. According to the manufacturer the use of the Battery line also helps to comply with legal requirements, especially the VdS guidelines 3103 and FM Global.
