Frequently Asked Questions

Changes to the new spec systems compared to the old?

At the start of 2018, in line with a required re-homologation with the FIA Lifeline refreshed all of it’s range of Fire suppression systems.

For Zero 2000

There is a change in nozzles count (increase from 4 to 8), there is change in tubing size from 10mm to 8mm (now every lifeline system runs on 8mm tubing instead of 3 different sizes) and the cylinder is not 3 times stronger than the previous generations with no increase in weight. The result is a more efficient and capable fire suppression system that is ready for any motorsport application.
 
For Zero 360
 
The main change is a reduction in nozzle count, by using different nozzle technology we can now off all Zero 360 systems with a reduced installation kit when compared with previous generations. This means that when compared to previous generations we can now offer a lighter and less complex product suitable for professional motorsport applications.

The latest regulations - For UK only

Up until 01/01/2018 the MSA was unique in that the service of the plumbed in fire suppression systems was only ever a recommendation, anyone who has had the opportunity to race on the continent will know that this is not the case and 2 yearly services are widely enforced in Europe. Enforcing mandatory services is first step by the MSA is part of the phasing in of FIA homologated fire suppression systems. From 01/01/2019 all new vehicles will require and FIA Homologated system from FIA technical list 16 or 52 and from 01/01/2022 all vehicles are required to be fitted with such a system.

Which system would you recommend for my car?

All of the motorsport fire suppression systems that Lifeline Manufacture are FIA homologated, so what are the options available to you. The Zero 2000 range filled with AFFF are cost effective and now with Lifeline’s latest development in misting nozzles technology are more effective than ever at knocking fires down. If space and weight are a premium in the vehicle then the Zero 360 range is the perfect option, filled with Novec TM 1230 the zero 360 range features some of the lightest and most compact systems available today.

Both ranges are available with mechanical (pull cable) or electrical (push button) activation, the advantage of choosing a electrical one is that it will come in a smaller and lighter package.

If you have a rally car then you must have a minimum of 3.0kgs of suppressant as well as a hand held extinguisher, we sell these in a bundle at a discount in ‘rally packs’.
