Lifeline Fire and Safety refreshes range for 2018 season

Following the introduction of its Zero 3620 fire suppression system, Lifeline Fire & Safety Systems has announced a consolidated range of onboard extinguishers, and has re-homologated its range of FIA Technical List 16 approved systems for 2018, in the light of knowledge gained from conducting the higher level Technical List 52 homologation that the Zero 3620 range conforms to.

The changes to the existing fire surpression systems have come about through innovations in nozzle design, as well as the deployment rate of the suppressant employed in the Zero 3620 range. After researching the broader application of the technology, Lifeline found it be suited to its 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 have 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."

Lifeline has also re-engineered its construction methods and the material specification of its cylinders, which now conform to the stringent US CFR49 regulation as well as the FIA Technical List 16 and EN3 regulations. The units have now been tested and certified to withstand six times the operating pressure, without increasing the weight or thickness of the cylinder.

Underpinning these developments at Lifeline is the company’s drive to increase its support for safety in the sport, borne out by the facts that more than 80% of UK motorsport competitors are now protected by Lifeline fire safety systems and that, this year, 74% of entrants at the Le Mans 24 Hours had specified Lifeline products.
