Prevent battery fires with Batteryguard battery cabinets

More and more insurers want companies to reduce the risk of a battery fire. If a lithium-ion battery from an e-bike or power tool does begin to burn, a fierce fire can develop that is almost impossible to put out. The battery can even explode.

Nationale-Nederlanden takes action

Bart van de Broek from Nationale-Nederlanden explains what you can do yourself to prevent battery fires. The most important measure is to charge the batteries in a special lithium safe.

Batteryguard is such a lithium safe that contains a battery fire inside the safe and prevents the fire from spreading to your business premises.

Batteryguard cabinets: tested and approved

The Batteryguard cabinet has been thoroughly tested and has proven that it can withstand a battery fire and the force of any subsequent explosion, preventing the fire from spreading to your premises and putting your employees in danger.

Independent research has demonstrated that Batteryguard can resist a battery fire and the force of any subsequent explosion.

What does the Batteryguard do if a battery catches fire?

There are batteries charging in your safe and the doors are closed. Suddenly an alarm goes off and the red light on the cabinet starts flashing: smoke and heat have been detected and the cabinet is warning you that a battery is overheating.

Because the smoke detector has gone off, the power has already been cut off automatically so that the battery charging stops. You have plenty of time to warn the fire brigade and your personnel that a battery is on fire in the cabinet. If the flue from the battery cabinet is connected to your ventilation system, the smoke and poisonous gasses are vented outside.

The Batteryguard cabinet is also safe and easy to use for new personnel.

Convenience and safety with Batteryguard cabinets

It’s simple: when you need to charge up your battery, you just open the cabinet and place the battery on the charger. Because the charger cables are fixed in the cabinet, you can be sure that you are always using an original charger for the battery.

It is important that you always close the cabinet doors, because if a battery catches fire, that fire is kept inside. If you do leave the doors open, a loud alarm goes off to warn you that you have to close the doors.
