Halon gas is not dangerous. In a mixture sufficient to interrupt combustion, it is still breathable...though I would rather take their word for it than test that personally. In heavy enough concentration, when flooding a closed environment, it could displace enough of the room air that there would not be sufficient oxygen. I don't know that I would use it in an occupied closed cockpit. In the engine compartment, it should pose no problem. It is not effective against metal fires such as magnesium, so don't carry a bunch of emergency flares.offroadr35 said:Has anyone mounted one yet? Anyone know from the different substances? I know a lot of the Porsche guys use Halon but I have heard Halon gives off some dangerous gasses. What about sodium bicarbonate?
These are the best out there but they are priceyAu111 said:The problem with the Halon units I've found so far is the size. All too big for the passenger footwell, where I'd like it.
eliseparts has a nice little unit, but I suspect they can't ship it over here.
If someone finds one that can mount attached to the "spine" that separates the driver and passenger footwell, please post here!
The PB1 is 10.3" x ~3" -- not bad at all. It may be worthwhile, of course, to spend the extra $40 for the PB2 with twice the retardant, and at ~13x3, still not too bad. I may have to mock these up this weekend to test fit . . .offroadr35 said:These are the best out there but they are pricey
