Circuit Fire Suppression Systems & Extinguishers

Since 1990 FEV has been manufacturing and supplying the very highest quality race car fire extinguisher systems for all levels of circuit racing.

Approved by both Motorsport UK and the FIA for national and international use, our circuit fire extinguishers include handheld motorsport fire extinguishers through to mechanical, electrical and remote charge plumbed-in fire suppression systems. Whatever your budget and size requirements, we have a fire extinguisher to suit all levels of circuit-based motorsport, including AFFF foam systems as well as N-Tec gas.

Our N-TEC products are classed as clean agents worldwide by accepting bodies, and are non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-carcinogenic, and electrically nonconductive and have a global warming potential (GWP) of less than one, making our N-TEC (gas) fire extinguishers the winning choice for motorsport teams and individual enthusiasts worldwide. Within our product range, we also offer foam based extinguishers which offer a great cost advantage over gas alternatives. Since FEV’s first involvement in Motorsport fire protection, nearly 30 years ago we are now proud to supply Formula 1, GT sports car racing teams, BTCC, WTCC, LMP, and ALMS.

 

Minimum requirements for circuit cars

Motorsport UK National Equipment

  • The minimum requirement for a foam or gas plumbed-in fire extinguisher is that is homologated to FIA Technical List 16 or Technical List 52, depending on your race class.
  • There are no minimum size requirements for plumbed-in foam or gas extinguishers at circuit race events, as being FIA-approved means it will meet the minimum size.
