The Low Voltage Directive (2014/35/EU) outlines essential safety requirements for electrical equipment, operating with a voltage between 50-1000V AC and 75-1500V DC.

As a result of the directive, the Fire Industry Association (the largest fire protection trade association in the UK) has issued guidance on the requirements for flame retardant UPS batteries, requiring all combustible plastic material within a fire enclosure to have a UL 94 V-2 or better flammability rating.

Source UPS can provide UPS batteries with flame retardant (FR) casings from Yuasa, Fiamm, Exide and Enersys for industrial applications, including uninterruptible power supply, fire and security, which are renowned for their long life and dependability.

Being the industries leading battery manufacturers, Yuasa, Fiamm, Exide and Enersys are always at the forefront of industry requirements.

Models that have a flame retardant casing with a UL 94 V-0 rating include:

Yuasa SWL, NP and NPL batteries and the Fiamm FLB range.
