Your experts for the safe handling of lithium batteries
Store lithium batteries safely
Proper storage of lithium batteries ensures operational safety and insurance protection. Our shelf storage, walk-in storage, and storage cabinets offer fire protection from both inside and outside and fire detection and extinguishing technology to store batteries of any size and quantity safely.
Charging lithium batteries increases the risk of thermal runaway. Our charging cabinets and rooms are equipped with intelligent sensors that enable monitored setting trigger alarms and activate fire suppression systems in an emergency.
If lithium batteries are damaged, they have a high potential for danger. They should be separated immediately and stored safely until proper disposal. Our high-quality quarantine boxes offer protection in the event of a thermal runaway.
Transport lithium batteries in compliance with the law
Lithium batteries are subject to dangerous goods regulations during transport. Depending on the battery's condition, stringent requirements apply to the packaging. We offer approved transport boxes for prototypes, undamaged, damaged, defective, or critically defective batteries.
Before newly developed lithium batteries, or products powered by them, receive a market release, the manufacturer must extensively test them. We create professional testing rooms for lithium batteries according to your specifications.
Whether storing small quantities with lower power or more powerful lithium-ion batteries in more significant amounts, you must ensure that your insurance coverage is guaranteed and that employees, your premises, and the environment remain protected. You must also ensure that stored lithium batteries are not damaged by improper storage. Our systems have structural fire protection from both the inside and outside and additional equipment for plant fire protection to store lithium-ion batteries safely and in compliance with the law for every application.
Special care must be taken when charging lithium-ion batteries, as there is an increased risk of thermal runaway. In particular, if defective batteries are exposed to a charging voltage or are not set correctly. For this reason, and also for insurance protection, charging must constantly be monitored. Our storage cabinets offer all-around 90-minute fire protection from the outside.
A tested, liquid-tight spill sump (powder-coated sheet steel) provides containment of any leaks from burning batteries while permanently self-closing doors and quality oil-damped door closers give more protection.
Lithium-ion charging and storage cabinets are the safe and ideal solution for charging equipment and tool batteries for everyday use. All cabinet models are equipped with integrated grounded sockets for connecting chargers. Depending on the model, SmartStore charging cabinets have technical ventilation to prevent heat build-up inside the cabinet. This product range includes lithium-ion charging cabinets in various tried-and-tested dimensions, from larger versions with up to 60 slots to compact variants to the space-saving under-bench cabinet. Models with a locker system for separate charging to keep lithium-ion batteries protected from unauthorized access are also available. What distinguishes our lithium-ion charging cabinets is the 90-minute fire protection from both the outside and the inside. Some models include an integrated 3-stage warning/fire suppression system to offer even more safety when charging lithium-ion batteries. The intelligent sensor system consists of a smoke detector and temperature sensor to sound an alarm, which is forwarded to the building management system via a dedicated contact.
Various events and external influences can damage lithium-ion batteries. For example, through mechanical damage, improper storage, or faulty charging. The problem: defective lithium batteries harbor an extremely high-risk potential. In particular, defective lithium-ion batteries have a high risk of "thermal runaway," an unstoppable chain reaction leading to fire or bursting. To protect your employees, production facilities, and the environment in the event of a reaction, faulty lithium-ion batteries must be separated immediately and stored safely until they can be disposed of properly. The DENIOS range offers the following solutions in these instances:

Quarantine boxes for damaged lithium-ion batteries
DENIOS offers professional storage and transport boxes that can be used as quarantine containers for defective lithium-ion batteries. The special containers are made of plastic, aluminum, steel, or stainless steel and are available in various sizes. Particular dimensions are also available on request. Different fire protection agents are used as filling material. For example, PyroBubbles®, an extinguishing agent for solid and liquid flammable substances that have been positively tested by the MPA Dresden according to DIN EN 3-7, as loose granulate or in practical PE cushion form. Depending on the risk assessment, performance, and condition of the stored lithium-ion batteries, our quarantine boxes offer application-specific safety standards, protection against exothermic reactions, and up to 100% control of a possible thermal runaway. Practical: Many containers are also suitable for subsequent transport and have the corresponding transport approvals for defective/damaged or critically faulty lithium batteries.
Transporting lithium-ion batteries in compliance with the law
Lithium batteries are assigned to UN numbers 3090/3091 (lithium metal batteries) and UN 3480/3481 (lithium-ion batteries) as Class 9 dangerous goods. Lithium batteries are subject to hazardous goods regulations during transport, and special requirements must be met for transport packaging. Generally, transport packaging with UN approval must be used when transporting lithium-ion batteries by road, rail, ship, or air. Depending on the condition of the lithium batteries, the transport box must also have suitable design approval and fulfill specific packaging instructions according to ADR. DENIOS provides you with transport solutions in compliance with these requirements.

Whether prototype, small series, undamaged, damaged, defective, critically defective, or lithium batteries destined for recycling, The DENIOS range offers a suitable and approved transport solution for every requirement. Our high-quality transport boxes for lithium-ion batteries are made of plastic, aluminum, steel, or stainless steel and are available in various sizes, including particular dimensions, on request. Safe and legally compliant transport of lithium batteries is ensured in combination with the appropriate filling material. Different fire protection agents are used as filling material, depending on the model. For example, PyroBubbles®, an extinguishing agent for solid and liquid flammable substances that have been positively tested by the MPA Dresden according to DIN EN 3-7. The expanded glass granulate is filled into the lithium-ion transport box or inserted into practical PE filling cushions. Other models work with padding of fireproof absorbent material made of textured glass fibers, with which the lithium-ion batteries are safely enclosed.
Professional testing of lithium-ion batteries
Before newly developed lithium batteries or products powered by them, such as household appliances, tools, or electric vehicles, receive a market release, they must be extensively tested. The planning of a safe test environment must take many customer-specific aspects into account. DENIOS develops lithium test rooms almost exclusively according to your customized specifications. You benefit from cost-effective series production, individual design, and the know-how of the fire protection expert.
