Lifeline 2020 systems are mechanical in operation being activated by strategically placed pull cables. The bottle valve is a high quality hand held commercial valve that has been modified by Lifeline to allow total discharge and fitting of pull cables.

The 2020 replaces the previous 2000 AFFF foam. The new formula is lighter but more effective - you need less material on board which means a smaller bottle and less weight. Yet it's more effective so fewer nozzles are required and it's easier to install.

The ABF foam suppressant is a water-based liquid that coats surfaces, removing the ignition source and oxygen. The foam can only suppress what it is in sight so the position of the nozzles is critical. Once the fire is smothered the foam stays behind to prevent flare-ups. It works especially well on fuel and oil fires but not good at all for an electrical fire. Clean-up is easy as you can rinse surfaces clear but the chemical can be corrosive if left behind. Lifeline ABF is free from PFOS and PFOA chemicals. To learn more about fire systems and suppressants, click here for our Tech Page.

* - the 3-liter bottle replaces the previous 4-liter (equivalent to a 5lb system) because the suppressant material performs better. However, consult your series or sanctioning body for confirmation the smaller bottle is acceptable.
