Fire Suppression

Challenges of lithium-ion battery fires

Li-ion and other batteries can pose a significant fire risk due to overheating, igniting combustibles, or triggering a thermal runaway event.
It’s important to understand the unique challenges associated with a battery cell failure so you can choose the right fire suppression solution:
  • A thermal runaway event accelerates the fire, making it ever-escalating
  • There are a variety of fuels available to feed the blaze
  • Cell design means the fire is deep-seated and hard to reach

Stat-X Aerosol Fire Suppression

Rechargeables is proud to carry the Stat-X line of condensed aerosol fire suppression systems, designed and test-proven to work on difficult battery fires. They offer superior, cost-effective suppression when compared to sprinkler and gaseous systems.
