Battery cabinet with optional automatic fire-suppression system

Batteryguard battery cabinets are actually solid fire-resistant safes, so you can be certain that any battery fire will never be able to escape. Our standard safes are already extensively equipped, but even more is possible:

Automatic fire-suppression system with cooling foam

400 volt
high -voltage connection

Lockable locker compartments in the Batteryguard safe

Self-closing doors in case of fire

Automatic fire-suppression system with cooling foam

While it is being charged up, a battery can overheat and burst into flames. The Batteryguard cabinet contains the fire inside of it and lets the fire burn itself out.

If you add the automatic fire-suppression system as an extra option, then you can prevent the fire from starting in the first place. The extinguisher works preventatively, cooling the battery and stopping the chain reaction inside of it.

Not all fire-suppression systems are suitable for lithium-ion battery fires. For the Batteryguard safe, we make use of an NTA 8133-2021 certified system that has been tested by Kiwa.

For the fire-suppression foam itself, we use BerkiCold concentrate, which satisfies the NEN 1568 standard (A, B, D and F) and which was specially developed for the sustained cooling of lithium-ion batteries that have overheated.

How the fire-suppression system works

Jos Kools is a product specialist and explains that there is an extinguisher tube under every shelf in the safe. If a battery overheats and gets hotter than 70°C, the extinguisher tube melts and the battery is covered in the cooling extinguisher foam that comes out of it.

The battery then cools down slowly and stopping it from bursting into flames. The other batteries in the safe remain undamaged. The fire-suppression system works preventatively.

In fact, fire-suppression system isn’t the right name, because the system stops there being a fire to suppress in the first place.

400 volt high-voltage connection

If you have a 400 volt connection in your meter cupboard, you can opt for the Batteryguard cabinet with a high-voltage connection. The advantage is that you can then charge up all the batteries at the same time.

The Batteryguard safe has 230 volt connection as standard. This means that you can’t charge up all the batteries at the same time. If you do put all 16 or 20 batteries on their chargers at the same time, the fuse will go in the metre cupboard.

We solve this problem for you with an automatic charging system. The system ensures that only batteries on one shelf at a time are charged. You can see from the green light which shelf is charging.

Charging is set for intervals of two hours. Every two hours a different shelf is charged up.

Lockable compartments in the Batteryguard safe

The Batteryguard battery safe can also be utilised as a central charging service for e-bike batteries in hotels, holiday parks, apartment complexes, schools, and more.

In the safe, the bike batteries each have their own secured compartment where they can charge safely. Should a battery catch fire, the safe contains the blaze within.

Insurers are increasingly reluctant to allow bike batteries to be charged in hotel rooms, holiday cottages, garages, etc., and often demand that they are charged in a fire-resistant storage system.

Modular construction

Our battery safe features a modular design. This means you’re not limited to a fixed size or capacity.

Only have a few batteries to store initially? Start with a basic safe. As your needs grow, you can easily add extra modules. The design is such that expansion is seamless and hassle-free, making your safe infinitely scalable.

Self-closing doors in case of fire

The Batteryguard cabinet warns you with a loud alarm if the doors are left open for longer than two minutes. If a battery in the cabinet bursts into flames, the fire can only be kept inside it if the doors are closed, so that’s very important.

For maximum safety, you can opt for self-closing doors. If one of the batteries overheats while the doors are open, they will close automatically, even if you are not by the safe yourself.

Electronic coded lock on the door

You lock the Batteryguard safe with a key, but you can also opt to have it fitted with an electronic coded lock. You then open the battery safe with a self-chosen code. When several people have access to the safe, you can set an individual code for each of them.
