Modular indoor steel rack systems for secure storage of and easy access to 
Saft Tel.X Ni-Cd batteries

Charles Indoor Battery Racks (CIBR) are modular, seismic Zone 4 rated (GR-487 certified) battery rack systems designed to fit the footprint of Saft Tel.X Ni-Cd batteries. In addition to several standard configurations, there are also single tray options that can be built on site. This flexible, modular design allows for installation in areas where it would not be practical or even possible to use a full-size, one-piece rack; such as rooftops, COWs/COLTs, small shelters, or other sites with limited access. It also gives the installer the flexibility to size the system for their particular needs, and have the ability to grow-as-you-go if necessary. The available equipment rack space above the battery trays will accommodate a power system. There are standard configurations that can be ordered with and without a power system installed.
