This category covers batteries and battery racks, often used as part of the emergency generation system. These may be mounted on a concrete floor, raised floor, wall, or roof.
- Typical Causes of Damage
- Seismic Mitigation Considerations
- The racks may slide or overturn and batteries may slip or fall from the rack. Failure of the batteries may compromise the emergency power generation system or other functions that rely on backup battery power.
- Seismic resistant battery racks are available from a number of vendors; these may be directly bolted to the floor or wall. Check the internet for available products.
- For existing battery racks, check that the batteries are secured to the rack and that the rack is properly braced and anchored.
