Forklift Battery Room Best Practices

The BHS Battery Room Best Practices page is a collection of recommendations made by individuals experienced in battery room design for a nonspecific battery room. Every battery room is different, and each recommendation should be thoroughly considered prior to execution.

The forklift battery room is an integral part of day-to-day operations, and it is imperative to include its layout in the original floor plan of any warehouse. The location of the battery room should minimize time spent traveling to and from work areas. If the industrial lift truck fleet is dispersed throughout the warehouse or distribution center (DC), a centrally located battery room would be most efficient. For companies where industrial lift truck usage is primarily isolated to a specific area, it is recommended to locate the battery room near the area of highest usage. In larger environments, multiple battery rooms should be considered.
