Innovation

Angus Fire has maintained its position at the forefront of fire protection technology through continuous investment in research and development. This is carried out through an international network of laboratories and fire test facilities in the UK, France and the USA. The unique combination of technical expertise in rubber and textile technology (fire hose), speciality chemicals (foam concentrates) and engineering design (firefighting equipment) has enabled it to achieve numerous technological “firsts”.
