Rally Fire Suppression & Fire Extinguishers

Browse our range of FIA-approved rally fire extinguishers, including gas and foam models. We at FEV find it a great testament to the design, strength and quality that we have given to our products, that many rally teams want to use both our plumbed-in fire extinguisher systems as well as our handheld models.

Our motorsport fire suppression systems are approved by both Motorsport UK and the FIA for national and international use. We have a wide range of race car fire extinguishers, from handhelds through to FIA-approved mechanical, electrical and remote charge plumbed-in systems, so we have a fire suppression solution to suit all budgets and levels of rally motorsport.

From FEV’s first involvement in Motorsport fire protection, we are now proud to supply the following Rally classes – WRC, R5, R3, R2, WRX, T1 and R-GT.
