Standard storage cabinets do not protect the stored working materials from external thermal influences. In case of fire this can cause serious injury to employees and damage to property. DÜPERTHAL Type 90 safety storage cabinets offer reliable 90-minute fire protection in accordance with DIN EN 14470-1. The BATTERY XL safety storage cabinet is specially constructed for the high demands on a safe storage of lithium-ion batteries which could catch fire in the event of malfunctions.

Fire resistance of 90 minutes and backdraft protection

Type 90 DÜPERTHAL safety storage cabinets offer fire resistance of 90 minutes – enough time to evacuate the building and a safe buffer for firefighting to commence. In an emergency, thermocouples initiate automatic closing of the doors. An absolutely new feature of the BATTERY XL is its reaction towards fires originating inside the cabinet. This automatically closes and locks the cabinet doors to prevent your employees from opening them and potentially causing a backdraft. Only authorised persons and experts of the fire brigade can unlock the doors.

Storage in accordance with insurance-related requirements

The BATTERY XL enables you to fulfil all legal provisions, especially the storage requirements of FM Global and those mentioned in the GDV's information leaflet on lithium-ion batteries, published by the VdS. Additional fittings for a reduced risk with self-igniting batteries ensure process reliability in a sustainable way and can thus be taken into account in your risk assessment.
