Battery Room Solutions and EquipmentTelecommunications companies and data centers typically set up designated battery rooms in their central offices to supply backup power in the event of a main source power loss. A battery room is an important space or room devoted solely to the storage of backup batteries or uninterruptible power systems.
Battery Room EquipmentBeyond the actual DC batteries, the battery room also includes any of the following equipment for safe storage and handling of the backup systems housed in the room:
- Handling equipment for the batteries
- Racks for battery storage
- Battery wash station equipment
- Acid-resistant floor epoxy
- Battery rotation systems
- Hydrogen detection devices
- Safety signage, supplies, and eyewash stations
- Cleaners and absorbers
Battery Room Safety and VentilationBattery room safety and ventilation are of utmost importance because many backup batteries emit hydrogen or oxygen if they’re overcharged or overheated. Keeping the battery room at the correct temperature with a well-maintained heating and cooling system is also vital. A battery’s lifespan diminishes in heat, but a room that is kept too cold will decrease the energy storage potential of the equipment in the room. Additionally, the chemical reaction that causes batteries to generate power can also be hazardous and dangerous if the corrosive acids within the batteries leak and come into contact with other equipment or facility employees. This is why most battery rooms contain an emergency wash station so that personnel can quickly and easily wash off any spilled or splashed battery acids.
