Keep the lights on with standby batteries

Loadshedding, and unexpected power failures, continue to inconvenience and frustrate South Africans, often leaving businesses and homes in the dark for long periods.

It’s important to have an effective solution in place that will not only power your business or home but also keep your security systems powered to keep everyone safe.

Generators have long been the back-up plan for many, but technological advancements have led to the emergence of environmentally friendly standby battery solutions. These advancements continue to influence the production of a range of world-class, locally manufactured standby batteries, that keep the lights on even when the power goes out.

And the best part? Standby solutions are quiet, pollution-free and fully recyclable.

The perfect standby battery solution can power up systems such as,

Security systems
Standby battery solutions can power motor gates, alarm systems, electric fencing and CCTV cameras during extended power outages.

To keep network equipment like servers going, high performing and robust batteries can offer uninterrupted power supply, while serving industries including security, emergency lighting, railways and more.


By providing emergency power, UPS solutions are ideal for homes and small businesses, to protect critical equipment during power outages. They are designed to power small to large applications like TVs, personal computers, lights, and appliances including a stove, dishwasher or washing machine.

Power utilities and petrochemicals

Electricity can even go out at power and substations. To ensure their operations continue, these industries rely on robust batteries that undergo rigorous tests before being approved to operate in these seismic-prone environments. When selecting standby batteries, several factors are considered, including reliability, environmental impact, space constraints and the required service life.

When deciding on the right standby battery solution for your needs, it's important to get advice from specialists. There are many solutions provided, but one stands out from the rest. First National Battery has been powering up businesses, industries and homes for more than 50 years.
