Stallion Marine: Safeguarding Marine Engines with Superior Lagging Expertise

For every marine vessel, a pre-engineered modular lagging kit is the ideal insulation to manage the heat generated by marine engines to prevent fire hazards on vessels. Given that 90 percent of all fires on marine vessels start from the engine room, the regulatory standards for approving lagging kits are not stringent enough. As a result, the lagging disintegrates over time and when opened for maintenance, release toxic airborne particles posing a threat to the maintenance staff. In addition, they can get soaked in flammable fluids and oils, becoming a potential fire hazard instead of assuring fire safety. This is where Stallion Marine, a leading heat shields and exhaust systems provider, makes a big difference with its modular, fluid-resistant lagging and exhaust blanket systems.

"By offering a product line that exceeds the U.S. Coast Guard's standard of approval for marine solutions, we have become the go-to lagging vendor ensuring maximum safety of marine components across our client's entire fleet, minimizing potential accidents," says Martin Lyons, general manager of Stallion Marine.

Unlike traditional lagging kits, Stallion Marine's lagging kits are made with a high-temperature liner foil with sewn edges that completely encapsulate the fiberglass, preventing fluid ingression. Even if there is a fluid leak, its products are designed with such an overlap that they act as shingles on a roof and eliminate the gap between two installation parts that generally exposes hot exhaust. Due to these distinctive features, Stallion Marine's lagging kits can stave off any inadvertent fire hazards on a ship, boat, or marine vessel.

The company's products are specifically designed for different marine engines. With each product bearing its own product number, the stock repeatable lagging parts ensure guaranteed fit with consistent quality. With an aim to keep its client's marine vessels up and running, Stallion Marine works in tandem with their representatives to set up a stocking program for commonly found engines across the industry based on the serial and model numbers of their engines. If a client has a large fleet and urgently needs a lagging kit, Stallion Marine can quickly deliver the product out of its stock so they can install the kit on the go.
A success story further corroborates the efficiency of Stallion Marine's solutions, where a client with multiple engines in their fleet found it a challenge to get underneath an engine's hot box and access its internal parts for maintenance. They to be omitted also found the reassembly of the hotbox very time consuming. They decided to onboard Stallion Marine’s team of experts who came up with a design from their archive of engine drawings and customize an engine blanket set specific to the client's engine series. As an upshot of replacing the hotbox, the client was able to eliminate the hot chamber of air that is both a source of heat in the engine room and a potential fire hazard. By eliminating the hot box, the client also gained significant cost reduction.

Another distinguishing factor that sets Stallion Marine apart from its peers is its added emphasis on reliability. The company has procured independent lab testing to certify their thermal properties and durability under combustible situations. Driven by this aim to manufacture quality, pre-engineered lagging systems with a consistent material fit, quality, and personalized customer service, Stallion Marine is determined to cement its position as a leading exhaust and lagging kit provider in the days to come.
