Research & Development

FSI and the University of NSW (UNSW) are heavily invested in a 5 year plus program to invent and develop more than 12 products for commercialisation. Some have been manufactured and others still in the pipeline. UNSW is the largest engineering university in the southern hemisphere with many game changing inventions to its credit.

Grant and private investor funding has enabled FSI & UNSW to establish the largest fire protection Research and Development (R&D) team in Australia, possibly worldwide.

The FSI Team at UNSW is developing ground breaking fire protection products with minimal environmental impact. This is aided by Australian government support in the form of CRC P grants. Details follow.

In July 2018, Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources awarded FSI and UNSW a very substantial government grant to develop a range of fire retardant coatings and infusion products. The FSI and UNSW team are now creating a range of polymer coatings that are safe for handling and may be applied to almost every type of substrate.

In December 2018, the Australian Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources awarded FSI and UNSW a federal grant to develop a range of fire detection and suppression technologies to protect buildings, transport and people. A key milestone of this work has been the development of a novel combustible cladding monitoring system to detect fire threats to the cladding in real time. Another milestone is the development of TAS, a toxic air sensor, small enough to be worn practically.

In December 2019, the Australian Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources awarded FSI and UNSW a federal grant to develop a range of fire proof panels using novel perovskite technology. These unique, light weight, thin film modules will be attached or integrated into vertical or sloping building features to generate clean, sustainable energy from a far cleaner manufacturing process than is currently used.

Arc Fire Training Centre (UNSW)

The ARC Fire Training centre at the University of NSW (UNSW) is a world-leading centre for innovation in fire safety technologies.

Also, UNSW is the top engineering university in the Southern Hemisphere and is based in Sydney, Australia.

All products are manufactured in Australia and Sweden to the highest sustainability criteria possible.
