asecos - Flammable Storage Cabinets with enhanced fire performance for high risk areas

Lithium-ion batteries are very power- ful energy storage solutions, and are being used more and more in tools, gardening equipment and vehicles – especially bicycles – and many other applications thanks to their compact design. As practical and e›cient as this battery technology is, and as harm- less as it seems to use, it does har- bour safety risks that shouldn’t be underestimated. In particular, lithium- ion batteries pose an increased risk of fire and bursting. Thanks to their very high energy density, they can spontaneously combust or become unstable in certain circumstances, and can explode if heated. CONCLUSION: The risk of a fire increases when lithium-ion batteries are left unattended to charge! Storing and charging lithium-ion batteries safely with Type 90 sto- rage cabinets of the ION-LINE .
