Lithium-based energy storage devices offer high performance with a compact design. These advantages mean they are being increasingly used in applications such as mobile, electronically operated devices, or vehicles. Alongside these advantages, this technology also poses safety risks. In particular, there is an increased risk of fire and bursting. As yet, there is no unified legislation on accident prevention. Safety measures need to be taken depending on the individual case, to avoid and limit damage and to guarantee insurance cover. This is where DENIOS can help. Whether you are storing or testing lithium energy storage devices, the right room solution is a DENIOS one.
