Flame Security started in 2006 when Flame Security Sweden was invited to try to protect the famous Swedish festival Gavle Goat structure. By coating the highly flammable goat with the first version of the company’s flame retardant product, the goat was successfully saved from multiple arsonists' attempts.
Flame Security has consistently developed and expanded the range of fire retardant products. Today's Flame Security products are effective and non-toxic.
Flame Security Sweden has joined forces with Flame Security Australia to become Flame Security International Pty Limited (FSI).
FSI is proud to be an associate member of the International Association of Fire & Rescue Services (CTIF).
FSI is delighted to be working with the University of NSW's global centre of excellence in fire research to ensure product quality, effectiveness and safety: The ARC Training Centre in Fire Retardant Materials and Safety Technologies (fire.edu.au). This research and development will further innovate and certify the Flame Security range.
FIGHTING FIRE WITH INNOVATION
The UNSW-FSI team has now achieved a record number of 3 Australian government grants for Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-P). This is an Australian initiative to combine innovative university work with industry outcomes and potential exports.
In December 2019 Round 8 of the CRC-P announced the UNSW-FSI application for Solar Skin had achieved the maximum funding of $3 million. This world first will combine leading class solar technology with environmentally friendly fire protection.

In the second grant, in December 2018, FSI was delighted to be the recipient of the maximum CRCP-6 grant for the `Innovative Development of an Autonomous Intelligent Fire Protection System (AIFPS)` over the next 3 years. See more in the UNSW Newsroom:
The Autonomous Intelligent Fire Protection Systems (AIFPS) Project is developing a unique range of fire prediction and suppression systems for military, public, commercial and private applications for air, land and marine vehicles for all types of fire classes. Solutions for public, commercial and residential buildings are also being developed. All AIFPS will use a world first, non-toxic, eco-friendly, flame retardant that is more effective than water and existing toxic foams.
Polymers and Textiles
In July 2018, FSI was chosen in CRC-P Round 5 to develop an Advanced Fire Retardant for Polymers and Textiles with UNSW. This project is well underway. See more here: https://tinyurl.com/UNSWnewsroom
