There are significant risks involved in the handling of lithium-ion batteries. While deep discharging, fires, chemical reactions, and in the worst cases, explosions are not a regular occurrence with these items, when they do happen, they are a major, destructive and costly hazard. Every single case means danger for employees, companies and the environment. This is where DENIOS comes in - we offer a comprehensive range of advanced safety solutions, designed to keep businesses safe when dealing with lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium batteries pose particular challenges to storage systems. Regardless of whether you have to store large amounts of lithium batteries or use devices in which lithium batteries are installed - the aim is to prevent damage by storing them properly and in accordance with your insurance cover. For example, the Association of Non-Life Insurers (VdS) recommends increased safety precautions for medium-sized batteries, such as storage in areas separated by fire protection. With certifiedDENIOS security products offer the optimal design for the safe storage of your lithium batteries.
When charging lithium batteries and handling damaged energy stores, the risks involved increase significantly. This is where you need appropriateand suitable In our range, you will find products developed for charging lithium-ion batteries as well as an extensive range of additional safety equipment for our technical room systems.
We've developed a new generation of safety cabinets for small quantities of lithium batteries of small to medium power - with 90 minutes fire resistance from inside and outside. In addition to fire protection on both sides, depending on the model, our lithium-ion cabinets have an additional safety system for fire suppression and high-quality monitoring technology that enables the monitored charging of batteries.

Potential hazards from lithium-ion batteries are considerable during transport. A fall on hard ground can be enough to damage a lithium battery, deforming the inside cells. This can quickly lead to internal short circuits and a fire. For this reason, lithium-ion batteries are considered dangerous goods according to international transport law, and are subject to regulations for the transport of dangerous goods.
To ensure that your goods arrive safely at all times, we provide containers and boxes specially developed for the transport of lithium-ion batteries - which you can find in the DENIOS online shop. These products keep batteries in a secure slip during transport. F , ensures that any dangerous developments during transportation are effectively contained.
You have to be extra vigilant when transporting damaged, defective or transport-unsafe lithium-ion batteries. In these cases,. Here too we have the right solutions in our program.
Our transport boxes made of steel or plastic in combination with the filler PyroBubbles® offer you excellent and certified solution options for the transport of lithium batteries. The plastic safety containers are also suitable for transporting damaged and defective lithium batteries (packing group 2). Metal models are even approved for damaged, defective and transport-unsafe lithium batteries up to 400 kg (packing group 1).

Newly developed lithium energy storage devices and products, such as vacuum cleaners and electric cars, must be extensively tested before they are released to mass market. In order to draw conclusions about the potential dangers any new product may pose to the general public, one of the tests that can be used is to stress an object beyond its load limits. For obvious reasons, this must take place under special safety conditions.
DENIOS test rooms for lithium-ion batteries are designed, to . Your operational model and safety and fire standards form the basis for designing the perfect testing environment - meeting your exact needs and specifications. Design aspects, such as space requirements, installation conditions and data collection, are all taken into account when creating the room concept.
When testing lithium-ion batteries, aspects such as manageability of test objects, test procedures (including testing equipment) and EDP-based data collection must all be taken into account when designing the room for customers. Testing rooms at DENIOS are usually designed individually for customers - which is how we deliver a room system that is perfectly tailored to your needs.
