Lithium Ion Batteries
Lithium ion batteries are found in nearly any type of portable electronics including cell phones, tablets, and laptop computers. What you may not realize is that these batteries can pose a significant fire hazard of improperly stored or handled and conventional fire protection systems can’t extinguish these battery fires. When you and your organization are involved with the TESTING, TRANSPORT and /or STORAGE of LITHIUM ION battery technologies; you should consider (and call) a company with the knowledge and experience to help you properly manage the risk.
Traditional fire suppression systems can damage sensitive electronic equipment and cause your important data to be permanently lost. Most chemical systems must be custom designed and assembled on-site. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to protect your important IT infrastructure from a fire that didn’t cost a fortune? What if your fire protection could scale with your infrastructure and even be moved to a new location with minimal effort and expense?
