Lithium Ion Battery Storage Building

A drone that would need its battery housed in a U.S. Chemical Storage lithium battery storage building.
Power tools, LED lighting, automobiles, and the increase of everyday electronic devices have caused the production and storage needs of lithium ion (li-ion) batteries to grow. Because lithium ion batteries can store large amounts of energy, fires and explosion risks are high. Special storage precautions protect workers and the environment. U.S. Chemical Storage manufactures prefabricated lithium battery storage buildings designed specifically for storing li-ion batteries.

Lithium Battery Storage and Safety

Lithium ion batteries are known to spontaneously ignite and pose fire hazards due to overheating from poor battery design, damage to the battery through a drop or strike, electrical shorting, overcharging, rapid discharge, or increased storage temperatures. Li-ion batteries contain lithium metal, which is highly combustible. Poor battery design, electrical shorting, overcharging, rapid discharge, or increased storage temperatures can all cause batteries to overheat.

Several types of buildings to store or charge lithium batteries are available, including fire-rated single and double-room buildings to separate storage from charging stations. Li-ion battery storage buildings from U.S. Chemical Storage are custom-engineered to fit your quantity and arrangement needs. Some lithium battery storage buildings are designed with fiberglass floor grating to protect against corrosion. Shelving, cubbies, or worksurfaces can be included depending on your needs. The buildings can also be designed with temperature control units and sensors to protect lithium ion batteries from overheating or freezing. Fire-rated and non fire-rated construction is available, depending on the proximity of the storage to occupied buildings or the time needed to implement your fire plan.

Optional Customizations for Li-ion Storage

  • Power outlets
  • Fire suppression systems
  • LED lights
  • Sensors & alarms
  • Workbenches (for buildings with charging room)
  • Temperature & climate controls
  • Multi-tiered shelving or cubbies
  • Fiberglass flooring
  • Chemical resistant paint

Many more options and safety accessories are available. As with any U.S. Chemical Storage product, our lithium-ion battery storage buildings come with an industry-leading 15-year structural warranty.

Need a larger than standard footprint? Modular configurations are available also possible for all lithium ion storage buildings.

Military Lithium Battery Storage Applications

Used in equipment such as drones and UAVs, as well as vital communications equipment, lithium ion batteries play an important role in military operations. Improper storage poses a great risk to mission preparedness. U.S. Chemical Storage understands the mission critical needs of the military and has extensive industry experience providing li-ion storage solutions for their specific applications.
