Thursday, 30 June 2022: Steadfast Risk Group, the risk management division of Australasia’s largest general insurance broker network, Steadfast Group (Steadfast), has announced a strategic investment in Flame Security International (FSI).
FSI is focused on helping to solve real world problems with cost effective and easy to use products. They can be used for a wide range of applications from durable coatings to protect buildings from wildfire to instant detection of fire threats to external combustible cladding. Our FSI and UNSW team is also undertaking world first R&D to develop fire proof solar skins for the vertical sides of buildings, infrastructure and glass.
FSI and the University of New South Wales (UNSW) are heavily invested in a 5 year plus program of fire R&D with 16 new products ready for commercialisation now. UNSW is the largest engineering university in the Southern Hemisphere with many global game changing inventions to its credit.
FSI is committed to sustainable development by reducing risks and enhancing efficiencies at all stages of the product life cycle. We apply an overall policy of corporate responsibility and sustainability that integrates environmental, social and economic considerations into all of FSI’s business activities.
FSI is proud to be collaborating with the Australian Department of Defence on a number of fire detection and suppression R&D projects. Collaboration is also underway with the US Department of Defence on a unique nano-sensor technology for wearable and drone deployed sensing of toxic gases, fire and explosive substances.
