Fire Suppression Systems – FIA Approved To Meet Standard 8865 2015

N-TEC3550R imageThis is the latest standard from the FIA for fire suppression systems. It has been a great development for the safety requirements across many of the highest levels of racing and in some of the harshest environments for fire suppression systems to be relied upon. Since the FIA implemented this new programme, FEV have consistently been at the forefront of product technology ensuring we are ahead of the competition in supplying the most advanced systems that meet the strict testing and regulations for this standard.

In 2019 we launched our new and highly anticipated product range for FIA Standard 8865, the N-TEC Series. These systems have been designed and developed to use 3MTM NovecTM 1230 Fire Protection Fluid as our next generation of fire-fighting suppressant.


3MTM NovecTM 1230

N-TEC2950R3MTM NovecTM 1230 is a sustainable solution and is widely known as a Halon replacement, with the advantage of it being a clean agent and meeting environmental regulations. FEV are the only manufacturer worldwide to have a system that uses a clean agent in both the cockpit and engine meaning a cost-effective solution to the requirement of using only a clean agent as the chosen material in fire suppression for this standard. This enables teams and manufacturers to ensure they are using an environmental regulated product, that the vehicle occupants are safer and by using this type of extinguishant means the benefit of no risk of corrosion and increased safety aspects across the system. An integral part of our exciting development of this product is that it is packaged as a compact single cylinder solution.

N-TEC2950R imageUpdates from some of our previous systems also include all parts being aluminium, a new three nozzle format for ease of installation, adjustable straps and mounting holes for the cockpit nozzles have now also been added to our design.

As per the regulations and to enable us to discuss the correct system size for your vehicle, we would require the cockpit volume of your vehicle/project.
