Installation of a Containment System should be performed by an experienced installer. Contact your distributor or dealer for a qualified technician to install your containment system. Be sure floor is clean and free of all debris before beginning installation. Be sure to specify containment system at least 2 outside rack perimeter. Spacing of aisles around the containment system should be in accordance with the NEC Article 110-16 and allow for battery replacement. Be sure to follow all other local and state codes for installation./nStep 1: Measuring for containment system. Begin by measuring the length and width of the battery rack system that will go inside the containment system. Mark the footprint of the racks intended location on the floor. The footprint is the outer most part of the rack, not necessarily the feet or base plates. Mark the outside perimeter of the rack and increase it by at least 2 in all directions.Mark new perimeter using chalk line reel. Mark the rack center on all 4 sides using a chalk line reel. Allow chalk line to extend past the perimeter by at least 8 inches. Step 2: Laying down the PVC Liner Next, Lay the PVC Liner in position. Make certain you have a minimum of 6 of (overrun) liner outside the marked perimeter. Mark the center of the liner with a chalk line reel. Remove the PVC liner to begin forming the containment box. Step 3: Forming the containment box Position the PVC Corners with the short side facing the floor and facing inward. With Electric hammer drill and masonry bit provided, drill pilot holes and anchor corners to floor with fasteners. Position rails between corners. Cut PVC rails with miter saw if necessary for snug fit. Anchor rails to floor using fasteners. Once the containment box is formed, seal joints with silicone adhesive Step 4: Folding liner into box Lay the PVC liner back into position using chalk lines. Fold one long side of the liner to the inside of the rail, allowing at least 2 inches of overlap on the outside of the rail. Fold liner at a 45˚ angle at the corner, making sure that all the edges of the liner fold over the rails. Place clips over the rails, holding the liner up over the containment rail. Repeat over the opposite side of the containment system. Finally fold liner and place clips over the rails on the remaining sides. Trim excess liner using utility knife. Step 5: Installation of Battery Racks Once the Corners, Rails, liner and clips have been assembled carefully place the battery rack onto the containment system and attach according to the manufacturers specifications. Seal edges of the battery rack and bolts with silicone adhesive. Step 6: Installation of Pillows and Socks After Batteries are placed in the battery rack add absorbent pillows and socks. Within the containment system, place the pillows in close proximity to each other, overlapping if necessary.
