Battery Stands

  • Battery stands or cubicles sized to order
  • Open stands
  • Cladded stands
  • Battery cubicles
  • Various options available to suit your application

PB Design work closely with Nirvana Engineering to bring you the best in battery stands. Once we know the size of the battery we can size up the appropriate stand.

Standard Open

Standard open frame racking is designed to safely accommodate all types of industrial batteries. Basic structural calculations are utilised to ensure the rack is capable of supporting the requisite battery system whilst ensuring adequate access for maintenance purposes. For vented plant and Ni-Cad types racks are constructed in a terraced manner to permit easy viewing of electrolyte levels and great access for when topping up is necessary. The relevant parts of BS6133 are used in the design of our racks.

Racks are provided with adjustable feet and acid resistant epoxy coating. All fasteners are supplied with insulating plastic caps and wall or floor stabilizing brackets can be specified optionally. All open racks accommodating “wet” batteries are provided with insulating electrolyte resistant capping for the support rails, the same capping can also be specified for sealed VRLA type batteries if desired.

Cladded Stands

Cladded racks are based on the equivalent open rack and are supplied in kit form for assembly on site. This can be a significant benefit over battery cubicles on sites where access to the final location is difficult. As per open racks, cladded racks offer great flexibility in design. When site conditions dictate, special solutions can usually be found which would be impossible with traditional battery cubicles.

Cladded racks can be configured to accept all types of battery, top and front terminal VRLA, planté and NiCAD. The standard specification offers the benefits of open racks in terms of flexibility of layout and optimal maintenance access coupled with ingress protection to IP10 (BS5490 : 1992).

Battery Cubicles

Battery cubicles can be designed to meet your needs. Depending on the size of your system, the batteries or strings may be housed in a battery cubicle. For larger systems, batteries may be housed in their own separate battery room on a stand.

  • Internal mounting of battery circuit breakers or fuses.
  • Matching of BS and RAL colour schemes.
