H3R Performance Fire Extinguisher Billet Mounting Accessories Accepted For Use in NMRA and NMCA Drag Racing SeriesLARKSPUR, CA -- NHRA-accepted billet aluminum mounting accessories manufactured by H3R Performance, Inc. have been approved by the NMRA Ford Nationals Series and the NMCA Hot Rod and Muscle Car Nationals Series for use with 1.0, 1.4 and 2.5 pound fire extinguishers. The brackets and accessories combinations that H3R Performance sells have been accepted by the race sanctioning body for use in all categories of NMRA and NCMA Drag Racing.
"NMRA and NMCA approval of our billet bracket mounting accessories is a testament to our product quality," said Chris Dieter, vice president, marketing and distribution, H3R Performance, Inc. "These brackets securely attach our premium MaxOut and HalGuard extinguishers or any other fire extinguisher with a cylinder diameter of 3 or 2.6 inches to the race vehicle roll bar, chassis or firewall."
Made of solid billet aluminum and available in 10 different SKUs, the company's new billet mounting accessories offer a more stylish look and greater versatility with polished and brushed finishes and both flat surface and roll bar mounting options.
Currently, the company sells four compact HalGuard and four MaxOut extinguishers that come standard with proven aviation style mounting brackets. New band clamps fit 2.6" (1.4 lbs.) or 3.0" (2.5 lbs.) diameter fire extinguishers, and can be combined with a flat surface mount or either a 1 5/8 inch or 1 3/4 inch roll bar mount for secure mounting under demanding racing conditions. A pull pin is used to quickly release the extinguisher from the mount.
About H3R PerformanceH3R Performance, Inc., a member of the H3R group of companies, offers the aftermarket high quality, USA-made, UL Listed fire extinguishers under the HalGuard and MaxOut brands. HalGuard "clean agent" extinguishers do not leave a messy residue - desirable when protecting classic collector, high performance, tuner, and race cars, as well as for use in RV's, marine, off-road and heavy duty. MaxOut is a reliable line of dry chemical extinguishers. Both are effective on flammable liquid fires and do not conduct electricity back to the operator - two important considerations when dealing with the types of fires most likely to occur in an automotive environment. HalGuard and MaxOut are available in 1 and 2.5 lb. rechargeable red or chrome-plated bottles. They sport high quality steel cylinders, all metal valve construction, and aviation-quality mounting brackets.
The H3R group of companies includes: H3R Performance, Inc., H3R Aviation, Inc., the largest supplier of portable clean agent fire extinguishers to the aviation industry, and H3R Clean Agents, Inc., a major buyer, seller and recycler of clean agents to the fire protection and other industries.
