The first generation of Motorsport fire extinguisher systems produced by Lifeline were manufactured using Halon 1211 as the extinguishing agent; however, due to environmental pressures the manufacture of Halon ceased under the Montreal Protocol. Lifeline took the pioneering route of introducing a lightweight, foam based extinguishant Zero 2000.
Zero 2000 systems quickly became the default choice for competitors but Lifeline did not stop its research and development program there. Ultimately this brought us to a new smaller and lighter range of Motorsport extinguishers which were branded as Zero 360. The name relates directly to the panoramic qualities of the gas discharge which, due in main to our unique nozzle design gives a fire smothering gas cloud seeking out and suppressing fire in the hidden engine bay corners. Manufactured by 3M™ we use Novec™ 1230 in our Zero 360 range.
The latest FIA standard for Plumbed in Fire Suppression systems, 8865:2015 is a great step in both driver and vehicle safety requirements. For 2019 the new Zero 275 extracts all the performance available form this standard, lighter, faster and more compact the Zero 275 is one of the worlds most advanced fire suppression systems.
This year a lighter and smaller Zero 2020 replaces Zero 2000, for more information on the new FIA compliant systems click on the links below.
