Fly Safe with this TSO-C203 Approved Fire Containment Cover

We applied our nearly 40 years of experience in advanced materials and coatings for fire containment to develop the FireCape™, the first truly effective Fire Containment Cover (FCC) for air cargo. The FireCape™ isolates a cargo fire to a single pallet for 6 hours, providing a flight crew valuable time to land safely. The FireCape™ was specifically designed to contain scorching, violent fires caused by Lithium-Ion batteries and other hazardous materials. We partner with Trip & Co., a leading European cargo cover and netting supplier, to sell FireCapes around the globe. 

The FireCape™ system is made with Z-Block™ fire and smoke stopping fabrics which exceed the performance standards set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and leading cargo carriers. It can withstand temperatures up to 1800°F / 980°C without toxic outgassing. The material is strong, flexible, abrasion & puncture resistant, weather resistant, lightweight, and low cost, which are all important benefits in this fire containment application.

In addition to providing significant risk reduction for cargo transport, the FireCape™ Fire Containment Cover was designed with ground crews in mind. It is lightweight, durable, and easy to deploy and maintain.
