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. FE-36 has zero ozone depletion potential and lower toxicity than Halon, with similar performance. It is stored as a liquid under pressure and discharged as a very cold gas which flows around obstructions to smother the flame and cool the fire to reduce re-ignition. It does not require any cleanup under normal circumstances. FE-36 is approved by SFI and SCCA.
Halon is a pressurized liquid that discharges as a cold gas. Halon systems are still accepted by some race sacntioning bodies including SCCA (for cars registered prior to 2009 only). Due to shrinking supply, rising costs, and acceptance by fewer racing organizations, FireBottle is phasing out Halon systems in favor of FE-36.
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.
