These systems are great for cars with open cockpits as it is a foam, not a gas that will quickly dissipate!
Firecharger 2.3L (5 lb.)AFFF Fire Protection System
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
of Firecharger Race Car Fire Systems
SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE, AFFORDABLE
User refillable: Firecharger racecar fire systems are user refillable, even at the track, with our simple to use refill and recharge kits. This makes Firecharger the ideal vehicle safety equipment . Other systems must be returned to their manufacturers for refill. This involves the freight both ways, the refill charge, days or weeks of waiting and, with gases like Halon, FM and FE---a hefty HAZMAT fee. Order a refill kit with your system.
Purpose-made for racing: The days of using a hand-held car fire extinguisher are long gone. Firecharger fire systems are specifically designed for American race cars and trucks by experienced racers, and they offer the latest in onboard racecar fire system technology. Some imports use hand-held fire bottles with holes drilled in the handles for cables, and plastic hoses and fittings.
Affordable, economical: Not only do we have the lowest prices on the market, but also our field- refillable feature will save hundreds of dollars if the race car fire suppression system ever needs to be recharged.
Easy installation: Our twin pre-drilled mounts and stainless steel racing Marman clamps allow for easy installation of the fire system on dissimilar surfaces such as on a stock floor pan. Install the fire bottle from vertical to horizontal, or any angle in between.
Install where weight is needed: Moving a few pounds to a corner can make a big difference in the handling of a race car. Our longer and adjustable cables allow installation of the bottle where the weight is needed. What is more, Firecharger racecar fire systems can be (and should be) installed horizontally (flat); this further improves handling and traction by lowering the center of gravity and weight transfer.
Aluminum tubing and AN fittings: Some fire systems come with brass fittings, and others use plastic tubing and fittings. Those are not professional race car plumbing, and plastic does not hold up to fire. We supply 8 feet of aluminum tubing, enough to plumb the largest cars, and AN fittings and nozzles.
Foam fire system, not gas: Foam has been the extinguishant of choice for many years for outdoor applications such as airports and rocket launch platforms where wind and air flow can dissipate gases such as Halon. Foam clings to surfaces and prevents fires from returning by smothering them in CO2 filled bubbles. Halon, and the other gases such as FE36 are still charged a HAZMAT fee by freight companies.
Firechargers are non-pressurized fire systems: A non pressurized fire system allows for easy user refill, airfreighting and lower shipping costs. Our AFFF foam carries no HAZMAT fees like other systems. Some gases can only be shipped by truck, but the Firecharger race car fire systems are shipped empty (or we can fill the fire bottle for you), saving you time and money because you do not have to pay for the weight of the extinguishant, or the HAZMAT fees.
Internal flex pick-up hose: A real racecar fire bottle should be equipped with an internal flex tube. This feature allows our fire systems to pick up all the extinguishant when the bottle is laying flat or straight up. Some fire systems use hand-held off the wall fire extinguishers that have a solid tube inside the fire bottle. If that bottle is installed horizontally, or if the car flips on its side the fire system will only discharge half its load. This makes the Firechargers ideal as off road racing equipment in the advent of a roll over and fuel spill.
Made in USA: Firecharger racecar fire systems are US made by experienced racers who understand racing safety equipment . Other fire systems are made in Europe for rally cars or specialized formula cars where requirements are far different than what we need on our oval tracks, dragstrips and road courses. Some companies actually get away with using plastic tubing and fittings. Their fire bottles may have to be shipped back across the ocean for refill.
