VLA (Flooded) Racks

C&D Technologies offers a wide range of VLA battery rack solutions that assure that specific customer site requirements are met. Whether space, ease of use, or code compliance is your biggest concern C&D has a rack solution that meets your needs.

RDB Rack Series

C&D Technologies RDB racks offer a variety of quality and value-added features. Most notably, the racks take advantage of a “common-frame” design among the Standard, EP1, and EP2 series. This allows the racks to be field upgradeable by simply installing additional bracing, while not having to remove any batteries! Additionally, the racks use a “C-Channel” frame cross-section that is more robust than competitive designs. The EP racks are qualified to meet maximum UBC Seismic requirements, Section 1630, for Essential and Above Grade, Zones 1-4.

C&D Technologies offers IEEE-693 certified racks. These racks are specially modified RDB series racks configured for the higher seismic levels of the standard. The certified configurations include two tier and two step racks which are commonly used in Utility applications.

RDC Rack Series

C&D Technologies RDC series Racks are IBC 2009 certified rack offering for its XT and L Series batteries. The RDC racks incorporate many of C&D’s RDB series rack features, but are designed to meet IBC seismic requirements. Two seismic versions of the racks are available, EP1 and EP2. EP1 is certified to a SS level of 138%, while the EP2 is certified to a SS level of 300%. Certifications are for Essential, Top of Building and Site Class D installations which comply with most site locations, eliminating the need for additional engineering resources to assess compliance. Rack lengths up to 36 feet are available to eliminate needless end to end rack connections and spacing.
