FA’s passive non-electric fire suppression systems utilize a proprietary pneumatic detection circuit, known as the Firetrace Detection Tubing, to detect a fire or ballistic event without the need to be integrated into a vehicles overburdened electrical system. The simplistic nature of the system, along with FA’s advanced Black Widow fire suppressing agent, ensures fail safe operation, ease of maintainability at operator level, reduced weight, reduced costs, and reduced space claim.
FA’s extinguisher systems have been installed on over 13,000 military vehicles protecting wheels/tires, undercarriage, engine compartments, and fuel tanks. FA’s systems have been environmental tested to MIL-STD-810 and have passed several live fire evaluations at Aberdeen Proving Grounds.
FA provides its line of automatic extinguisher in two different configurations dependent on the hazards to be protected, the Direct and the Indirect system.
