Flame Security International

Research & Development

Flame Security International (FSI) has teamed up with chemical, mechanical, material and electrical engineers and chemists at the University of NSW (UNSW) and together develop highly innovative fire protection products.

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.

Together with UNSW, FSI has been awarded a record amount of R&D grant funding from the Australian government to develop ground breaking, environmentally friendly fire protection products. This is through the Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P) and the subject of these grants are:

Textiles & Polymers (CRC-P 5)

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 textiles and polymers team have developed new and non-toxic wildfire fire retardants, paints, furniture foams, stain protectors, varnishes and renders for almost every kind of substrate.

Autonomous Intelligent Fire Protections Systems (CRC-P 6)

In December 2018, Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources awarded FSI and UNSW a very substantial government grant to develop a range of fire detection and suppression technologies to protect buildings, infrastructure, vehicles, aircraft and defence maritime personnel and assets. 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.

Solar Skin (CRC-P 8)

In December 2019, Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources awarded FSI and UNSW a very substantial government grant to develop a range of fire proof solar skins. These skins will use perovskite rather than silicon as the primary technology. These unique light-weight, thin film modules will be attached to the vertical sides of buildings and windows to generate clean energy from direct, ambient and reflected sunlight. Energy will be stored using a sustainable and safe new battery technology invented at UNSW.

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.
