The World’s Safest Battery Storage & Transport Container
The Battery Transport & Storage (BTS) Container was purposely designed as a lead acid battery container, for the regulation compliant, safe and environmentally responsible storage and transportation of used lead acid batteries.
The BTS Container delivers maximum safety while reducing the environmental impact of used lead acid batteries, via the following features;
- It includes a unique & patented front loading feature for the ergonomically safe loading of batteries (no other battery container provides this safety feature).
- Its incredibly robust construction ensures that your batteries are being transported in the safest way possible. The BTS Container is manuafctured with 90kg of LDPE plastic and assembled using 4 8mm stainless steel rods and secured using 6 stainless steel, self-closing, over-centre latches (Snap-Flat). Each Snap-flat latch has a breaking strain inexcess of 1 Tonne.
- The 25L bunded base, Dangerous Goods signage and ability to close the container, when in outdoor settings, ensures compliance with lead acid battery storage regulations. It also prevents any acid leaks (containing high levels of en-trained lead), into the environment or coming into contact with humans.
- The BTS Containers reduces operator discretion when packaging batteries for transport (no wrapping, strapping or separators are required and DG labels are already provided), thus helping ensure compliance with lead acid battery transport regulations.
