Why is Lifeline one of the key players in motorsport safety? Since the company was formed almost thirty five years ago, in 1980, the key to its progress - and success - has been in Research and development. It is this constant striving to create a better product that keeps it ahead of the competition.
Having built a solid reputation for innovative fire knock-down systems, the company soon began drawing on its considerable technical skills to develop other motorsport products where safety was at a premium. These can all be found in the following website pages.
At Lifeline, we understand the needs of the motosport competitor, because we compete ourselves. Sure, we will not be challenging for the F1 World Championship™ but, being in the swim enables us to listen to the pitlane discussions among drivers, teams and constructors that very often form the nucleus of an idea for a new product.
You will find Lifeline products in use the world over - in F1, Le Mans Series, Indycar, right down to the Sunday Clubman driver. And it's this grass roots-up attitude that enables us to stay ahead of our competition, while racers battle to stay ahead of theirs - knowing that they are being protected by the best safety products available.
As advisors to the Federation Internationale d'Automobile (FIA) Safety Institute and also committee members of the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA), we see our role not only as manufacturers but also as a business helping to formulate the safety regulations for the next generation.
Research and Development
Lifeline’s continuous commitment to research and development ensures that we supply the most innovative and cutting edge products available. Used by the majority of the world’s motorsport championship-winning drivers, teams and constructors – Lifeline has a stringent and proven history of success.
Lifeline’s Zero 360 systems are the result of over 7 years of intensive research and development using both DuPont FE36TM & 3M’s™ Novec™ 1230 environmentally friendly liquid extinguishant. Already in use by many world championship motor racing teams and constructors Zero 360 is the racer’s number one choice – an unparalleled test. By using Lifeline’s Compression Discharge technology, superior results are assured over standard stored pressure systems. This is because only pure undiluted extinguishing agent is deployed, unlike others that are saturated with Nitrogen, thereby reducing efficiency of the agent. Available in sizes to suit all applications – with either electrical, pull cable and automatic activation or the unique Zero Zone multi-directional automatic discharge valve for fuel cell coverage. All parts are CAD designed and CNC machined for optimum performance. Each part of every fitting kit has been carefully designed and specified for a professional and simple installation.
