Fire Suppression Systems
Protect yourself and your investment with a fire suppression system. Even if your racing class does not require it, a fire system can be cheap insurance!
FE-36™ is DuPont's clean replacement for Halon. It is a pressurized liquid that discharges as a cold gas. When discharged, the gas flows around obstructions to smother the flames. FE-36 has zero ozone depletion potential and significantly lower toxicity than Halon, with similar performance. It does not require any cleanup under normal circumstances. We offer FE-36 systems that are SFI certified.
Novec™ is 3M's clean replacement for Halon. It is a pressurized liquid that discharges as a gas. When discharged, the gas flows around obstructions and absorbs the heat of combustion to stop the fire. Novec 1230 has zero ozone depletion potential, less 100-year global warming potential than carbon dioxide, and effectively zero toxicity. It does not require any cleanup. We offer Novec 1230 systems that are FIA certified.
AFFF stands for Aqueous Film Forming Foam. AFFF is stored as a liquid and discharged as a foam which covers the area in the spray pattern to extinguish the flames and cool the area to suppress re-ignition. AFFF is non-conductive and non-corrosive, environmentally friendly, and it cleans up with water. It is accepted by most race sanctioning bodies including SCCA, FIA, and IMSA.
SCCA requires SFI- or FIA-approved systems in all new racecars. These systems are also legal for all other cars.
