Race Car Fire Suppression

Choose the right Race Car Fire Suppression

Protecting What Matters Most for Motorsports

The only thing on the track faster than a race car is the race to extinguish a fire. Make sure you choose the right race car fire suppression.

In driver compartments and engines, fires burn fast and hot. Being unprepared to handle a class B fire emergency can be devastating. For professional drivers and their crews, as well as weekend racing enthusiasts, human safety is critical. In pits and garages, having a reliable, safe and effective fire suppression system is essential. Lose the race against fire and you lose a high-value asset, your livelihood, and possibly even lives. 

Traditional fire extinguishing agents such as water and dry chemicals can cause damage to engines and high-value equipment and contribute to downtime. The DuPont family of fire extinguishants provides exceptional alternatives. They are safe for people, electronically nonconductive, noncorrosive and free of residue.

Protecting race cars and their drivers is what matters most--to you and to us.
