Recommended Practice for the Design and Construction of Prefabricated and Modular Outdoor Battery Enclosures

This recommended practice covers the design and construction of prefabricated and modular enclosures for diverse environments, both indoors and outdoors. These enclosures house batteries and related equipment that may include chargers, inverters, distribution panels, protective devices, and ancillary systems. This document covers functional requirements for enclosures for all battery technologies and all stationary applications. Recommendations are included for ventilation, thermal management, spill containment, and fire suppression, as appropriate. Those recommendations apply also to battery compartments in electronic equipment cabinets for applications such as telecommunications and power generation, transmission, and distribution, but the design of such cabinets and enclosures is beyond the scope of this document. While all battery enclosures are transportable, mobile (wheeled) units are not covered.
