Fire containment Cover

FireCape Fire Containment Cover is a result of more than 3 years development,
testing and system design. In answer to the demands of the industry and
its regulators, we were looking for a cost effective solution which can contain
the most severe fires including those resulting from lithium Ion & metal batteries.
With our FireCape Fire Containment Cover (FCC) we guarantee peace of mind to
you and your crew in the event of a cargo fire.
The FireCape Fire Containment Cover (FCC) acts as a two way barrier to contain a fire
for at least six hours without relying on suffocation of the fire, providing valuable
time for a pilot to safely land the aircraft. In addition of being durable and easy to
deploy, our FCC far exceeds the rigorous performance specifications proposed
by the FAA and leading cargo carriers.

Design Features

The Fire Containment covers utilize a five-sided cross design with overlapping corners and Velcro closures. Fabricated from the most technologically advanced fabrics available
and maximum strength, high temperature sewing threads, these structures are
intended to tolerate even the most extreme conditions.

FireCape Fire Containment Covers are available in two styles: A single layer
construction (light) or a three-layer advanced composite (extreme). The three-layer design offers greater water tightness, puncture resistance, and durability than the single layer
model. The three-layer model also offers extended protection during an extreme fire caused by a challenging fuel source, like lithium-ion batteries. All covers feature Z-Block, a high temperature polymer coated fiberglass fabric with a proprietary overcoat.
