Battery Racks

Battery racks and battery rack systems manufactured by C&D Technologies are the industry standard for storing application-specific flooded or sealed (VRLA) battery strings. Their modular design allows for accessible maintenance and compatibility with existing equipment.

HM Cragg is an authorized distributor of C&D Technologies. For quotes, availability, or further information on C&D battery racks, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Flooded Battery Racks

C&D Technologies designs and manufactures “common-frame” heavy gauge steel battery racks for flooded batteries. These battery racks feature a “C-Channel” frame cross-section that is more robust than alternative designs and allows for additional bracing to be installed without the removal of batteries.

Standard Rack Features:

  • 1-Tier, 2-Tier, 3-Tier, and 2-Step Series in standard and custom lengths
  • Strut rails with flame retardant polyethylene rail covers
  • Rugged “C-Channel” frame design
  • Welded steel frames with an acid resistant, electrostatically applied epoxy powder coat, telephone gray
  • EP racks qualified to meet maximum UBC seismic requirements, section 1630, for essential and above grade, zones 1-4
  • Electrical Grounding Provisions built into base of each frame
  • Flame retardant polyethylene rail covers provide electrical isolation
