Since the company was formed in 1984, Lifeline has become the leading manufacturer of fire safety equipment and fire safety systems to the motorsport industry.

The first generation of systems produced by Lifeline were manufactured using Halon 1211 as the extinguishing agent. Following the Montreal Protocol, Halon was decommissioned as an extinguishing agent. Lifeline then took the pioneering route of introducing a lightweight, environmentally-friendly, foam-based extinguishant Zero 2000.

Current Lifeline motorsport systems use either Zero 2000 foam-based extinguishant or the advanced Zero 360 gaseous extinguishant (3M(TM) Novec(TM) 1230). Both products are fully FIA approved for international motorsport. A range of SFI-approved Zero 360 has also been created for the North American market. Read More »

Following the introduction of their class-leading Zero 3620 fire suppression system, Lifeline Fire & Safety Systems have consolidated their range of onboard extinguishers and re-homologated their range of FIA Technical List 16 approved systems for 2018, 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.
