The patented Lifeline® Zero 3620 systems (GB 1502347.6; GB 1516832.1; PCT/GB2015/050391) are a
step change in motorsport fire suppression technology representing the safest, most advanced,
fastest and most validated product available to competitors. 20 years of experience, knowledge,
continuous improvement, testing and real world customer feedback have been put into this product,
as well as validation from the FIA, BSI and the UK MOD.
From 01/01/2016 FIA RC1 WRC competition vehicles are mandated to have an extinguisher system
which meets the stringent FIA 8865-2015 standard and this specification is recommended for all FIA
events (see FIA Appendix J 13.07.2015 ART. 7). The 8865-2015 (FIA Technical List 52.) standard is
intended to eventually replace FIA Technical List 16 extinguishers but no schedule has been set for
this at the time of writing; see TB020 for updates.
Using a combination of 3M® Novec 1230™ and an AR-AFFF blend discharged through 1 high
discharge nozzle in the cockpit and 3 in the engine bay, both performance and ease of installation
When choosing an FIA 8865-2015 system it is critical to specify by the cockpit volume (m3) in order
to maintain protection from a fire and the safety of the driver/co-pilot. All Lifeline Zero 3620 systems
are described by cockpit volume to make this choice simple. Due to mandated ballast being built into
the smaller system there is no weight advantage across the 3620 range.
