A TQA is designed to safely park a car with a potentially damaged lithium-ion battery in such a way that, if a vehicle fire breaks out, it can be prevented from spreading to surrounding objects (vehicles, buildings, etc.).
In addition, potential leaks of operating fluids from the battery that could pose a risk to the environment are contained. The quarantine zone is not intended to prevent fires, but rather to contain them.
TQA recommended requirements:
- Outdoor location with sealed surface
- Fire detection system
- Fire Protection Spec’s (EN 13501)
- Contaminated water retainer
- 5m Distance from Each Vehicle Side: Model Building Code (MBO) § 30
