Your expert 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, as well as fire detection and extinguishing technology to safely store batteries of any size and quantity.
Charging lithium batteries increases the risk of thermal runaway. Our charging cabinets and charging rooms are equipped with smart sensors that enable monitored charging and trigger alarms and activate fire suppression systems in case of 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 condition of the battery, 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, they must be extensively tested by the manufacturer. We develop professional test rooms for lithium batteries according to your individual specifications.
Whether you are storing small quantities with lower power, or more powerful lithium-ion batteries in larger quantities, you must ensure that your insurance cover is guaranteed and that employees, your premises, and the environment remain protected. You also need to ensure that stored lithium batteries are not damaged by improper storage. Our systems have structural fire protection from both the inside and outside, as well as 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 charged properly. For this reason, charging must always be monitored, also for insurance protection. Our storage cabinets offer All-around protection: 90-minute fire protection from the outside.
With tested, liquid-tight spill sump (powder-coated sheet steel). For containment of any leaks from burning batteries and with permanently self-closing doors and quality oil-damped door closers.
Lithium-ion charging and storage cabinets series are the safe and ideal solution for charging equipment and tool batteries in everyday use. All cabinet models are equipped with integrated earthed sockets for connecting chargers. Depending on the model, SmartStore charging cabinets have technical ventilation to prevent heat build-up inside the cabinet. In the range, you will find 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 of lithium-ion batteries protected from unauthorized access are also available. What distinguishes all lithium-ion charging cabinets is the 90-minute fire protection from both the outside and the inside. Depending on the model, the integrated 3-stage warning/fire suppression system offers even more safety when charging lithium-ion batteries. The intelligent sensor system with a smoke detector and temperature sensor sounds an alarm in the event of smoke development, which is forwarded to the building management system via a potential-free contact.
Lithium-ion batteries can be damaged by a wide variety of events and external influences. For example, through mechanical damage, improper storage, or faulty charging. The problem: defective lithium batteries harbor an extremely high-risk potential. In particular, the risk of "thermal runaway", an unstoppable chain reaction leading to fire or bursting, is high with defective lithium-ion batteries. To protect your employees, production facilities, and the environment in the event of a reaction, defective 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 are available for the USA and CA. (Request a quote since the item is not ready to sell on our website but we can arrange a drop-ship from Germany).
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. Special 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 as well as safety protection against exothermic reactions up to 100% control of a possible thermal runaway. Practical: Many of the boxes are also suitable for subsequent transport and have the corresponding transport approvals for defective/damaged or critically defective 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. This means that lithium batteries are subject to dangerous goods regulations during transport and special requirements must be met for transport packaging. In general, 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 a suitable design approval and fulfill certain 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 special dimensions on request. Safe and legally compliant transport of lithium batteries is ensured in combination with the appropriate filling material. Depending on the model, 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. The expanded glass granulate is filled into the lithium-ion transport box or inserted in the form of 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.
