Fire Suppression Systems
Protect your investment with a handheld fire extinguisher or an integrated fire system. Even if your racing class does not require it, a fire extinguisher is cheap insurance!
Halon 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. Halon does not require any cleanup under normal circumstances. Halon systems are accepted by many race sacntioning bodies including SCCA (for cars registered prior to 2009).
FE-36™ is DuPont's clean replacement for Halon. It has zero ozone depletion potential and lower toxicity than Halon, with similar performance. FE-36 has been approved by SFI and SCCA.
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.
