Lifeline moves driver safety forward with new range of fire safety systems07 Nov 2017
Following the introduction of its class-leading Zero 3620 fire suppression system, Lifeline Fire & Safety Systems has consolidated its range of onboard extinguishers and re-homologated its range of FIA Technical List 16 approved systems for 2018. This is in light of knowledge gained from conducting the higher-level Technical List 52 homologation, to which the Zero 3620 range conforms.
Innovations in nozzle design and deployment rate of the suppressant which the company had employed with the Zero 3620 range were found to be suited to other systems in the range and the decision was taken to extend the technology across the board.
"It was an easy decision to make, seeing the way the technology was improving the performance of our systems, but we knew we were taking on a mighty challenge to get the products homologated and into production in time for the 2017/18 build season," said Jim Morris, Lifeline's managing director.
"However, the technical department here at Lifeline has worked tirelessly to design, develop and approve this new, improved range of nine systems, to give the competitor in all categories of motorsport competition greater fire safety," continued Morris.
In addition to making the resulting three ranges of systems possibly now the most advanced and safest available, the consolidated range means they also cover an even greater number of applications.
