Due to the growing use of lithium-ion batteries of the mid-range performance class, the risks associated with the storage and in particular unattended charging of these batteries in commercial and private areas are on the increase. For property insurers and businesses of all sizes, it is therefore of great interest, that there are available protective devices such as fire resistant safety storage cabinets which can be used to minimise risks, avoiding damage to property and life, as well as substantial financial claims.
As the world's leading manufacturer of safety cabinets, asecos has developed special fire-resistant storage cabinets for medium powered lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries can be safely stored (passive storage) and, depending on the model, also charged (active storage) in these safety cabinets without permanent supervision.
In the event of an external fire, the lithium-ion batteries stored in the safety cabinets are protected against overheating for a period of 90 minutes. This prevents the lithium-ion batteries stored in the cabinet from spontaneously igniting, becoming unstable or exploding. Even in case of a fire coming from the inside, fire resistance of more than 90 minutes is demonstrably achieved. Depending on the model, the safety cabinets are additionally equipped with an automatic aerosol fire-extinguishing system and smoke/temperature sensors. That means: Perfect protection even during unattended loading.
