Automatic Fire Protection - Motorsport Safety Technology Benefits Taxis

Earlier this year, we were called upon to develop a rapid solution to a serious issue that had been affecting a fleet of around 1,000 taxis.

The issue in question related to a rear turbo hose in one particular model of taxi that, when fractured, blew hot gases into the bulkhead and onto sound-deadening material which, in a few incidences, caught fire and completely destroyed the vehicle.

Faced with this major problem the manufacturer contacted Lifeline and asked if we could find a solution.  Following a series of exhaustive tests, Lifeline developed, designed and manufactured an Automatic Fire Protection system to resolve the issue – in under a week. 

The automatic fire protection system developed by Lifeline features a 1kg ABC dry powder extinguisher that is fully automated using the Protectowire fused detection system. This activates Lifeline’s patented self-contained compact lithium cell battery-operated firing head when a temperature of 180ºC has been registered. 

The systems for all 1,000 vehicles were supplied to the installation contractor in kit form – complete with all pipework, nozzles and drilling templates - and were successfully fitted to the entire fleet in one month. The extinguishant cylinder was neatly located out of sight of any passenger in the driver’s cab.

Lifeline can design and supply a wide range of Automatic Fire Protection solutions to help you whatever your situation, take a look at some of our Automatic Fire Systems systems and contact us to find out more.
