Car – Gas Fire Extinguishers

FEV has been producing car gas fire extinguishers for over 25 years. Over that time the brand has become synonymous with quality, reliability, and safety.

Our FX G-TEC Gas

We have worked alongside a highly prestigious and respected chemical company in order to developer an alternative to Halon 1211, which was discontinued after it emerged the gas was damaging to the environment. We understood that it was essential to find an effective replacement for Halon 1211 gas, so we created Viro3. Viro3 is the first FIA homologated gas system and is now known as FX G-TEC gas. This was shortly after we had achieved FIA homologation approval for our AFFF extinguisher systems. This is an environmentally friendly alternative to Halon 1211. It leaves no harmful residue after being fully discharged and it allows for much improved visibility during discharge compared to powder-type fire extinguishers. Our FX G-TEC car gas fire extinguishers are used everywhere from Formula 1 and World Rally to touring and sports racing.

Why Gas?

Our FX G-TEC gas is a very effective way to suppress a fire in an engine bay or another part of a race or road car. It actually cools down the fire which not only stops it but helps prevent re-ignition too. One of the other advantages is that gas is a very clean option. It does not leave a huge amount of residue on expensive engine and body parts; in some cases this type of residue from other suppressants can cause corrosion. Gas fire extinguishers can also be smaller because you can get more gas into a smaller container. A 1.5kg gas extinguisher is equivalent to a 4 litre foam extinguisher. So when space and weight is an issue, which it always is when it comes to motorsport, gas is the most efficient way to go.

Applications

As mentioned, FEV supply gas fire extinguishers to a number of F1 teams as well as WRC teams and many others. They can, however, also be used for many other forms of motorsport and even track day cars. However, there are some situations where a foam option may be a more economical choice and our team are very happy to help advice customers on the right car fire extinguisher for them. All our gas suppression systems are FIA and MSUK approved so they are suitable for any level of motorsport.
