AmSafe passes battery fire test

AmSafe Bridport has reached another milestone in its bid to produce fire containment covers (FCCs) when it completed the world’s first successful fire containment test with Li-ion batteries in a 35.3sq ft (1m³)-space. The six-hour test involved bundling together 4,800 batteries that were charged to between 50-70% of their capacity into AmSafe’s Mantle fire containment UK/US & EU Pallet skid design. This was then placed into the thermal runway which recorded internal temperatures exceeding 1500ºC. AmSafe says that Mantle is the only product in the world to contain a fire of this intensity within such a small space. This is the company’s eighth recorded Li-on Battery test across their Mantle range of FCCs.
