FEV About Us - image of fire extinguisher

When the manufacture of Halon 1211 was due to cease because of its damaging effects to the ozone layer, an effective solution for a Halon 1211 gas replacement was needed for the world of motorsport. Together with one of the most respected chemical companies in the world, FEV set out to develop solutions that resulted in the first FIA homologated gas system – Viro3 (gas) – now known as FX G-TEC (gas).

To achieve the FIA and MSUK approvals, our systems were put through the FIA defined fire tests, and witnessed by British Standards and Motorsport UK. Later research and development, together with further innovative ideas, led FEV onto the next generation of FX G-TEC (gas) products, which perform even better than the previous generation.

We developed our own patented flange design which, together with a new nozzle design, has given FEV a unique range of fire suppression products. What’s more, we also designed and developed the first internal bladder system +ADS (Advanced Discharge System) to contain the fire suppressant. This development has led to a smaller and lighter range of fire extinguishers, and we can now offer in-car systems from as small as 1.5kg gas and 2.25ltr in the AFFF range.
