Zero 2000 Series (FIA)

Zero 2000 FIA Approved

Lifeline was established in 1980, and soon became the leading manufacturer and supplier of on board fire suppression systems to the motorsport industry. The first generation of 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. Thus the race was on to devise an effective replacement for an extinguishing agent that had provided many years of valuable service. Lifeline took the pioneering route of introducing a lightweight, environmentally friendly, foam based extinguishant ZERO 2000. This is not just an extinguishant but also an integrated system, the compound itself being specially blended to cope with the rigorous demands of motorsport.

An integral part of the ZERO 2000 system is the specifically designed atomiser nozzle.The device divides the foam into minute particles, smothering the fire with a fine mist that forms an invisible seal over the target area, cooling and thus preventing re-ignition.

Lifeline Zero 2000 systems are constructed using only the finest materials and are supplied complete with all of the components required for a professional installation. It performed supremely well in engine fire tests, and thus has the full acceptance of the MSA, FIA and SCCA. Lifeline's range of FIA certified systems have been homologated by the FIA for use in International motorsport and has been awarded the homologation numbers EX.002.98 and EX.020.05. The FIA certification requires that the systems be tested to the FIA standard for plumbed in fire systems. These tests were witnessed by the British Standards Institute and MSA.
