Difference between EN 14470-1 and Batteryguard safes
A cabinet with an EN 14470-1 label is a chemical cupboard that protects paints and solvents from fire from outside of it. These EN 14470-1 cabinets are frequently offered as suitable for charging and storing lithium-ion batteries in them, but in reality, they are inadequate.
Chemical cabinets have been designed to keep fire out, but with a battery fire, the fire starts inside the cupboard. If a battery catches fire in a cabinet like that, the flames literally burst out on all sides. You can see in the video here what happens.
This can’t happen with Batteryguard. This is because Batteryguard is not a cabinet, but a fire-resistant safe, with a solid construction and robust hinges and fittings, and is the only one on the market that has been tested by MPA Dresden. Choosing the Batteryguard safe means choosing proven safety.
