It’s strange to think that the modern household smoke detector was invented accidentally. That little stroke of serendipity has gone on to become one of the most important fire safety innovations in history – but there are still so many more waiting to be discovered.

Fire safety improves with every generation of new products and every lesson learned. Every once in a while, those gradual, incremental improvements are met with a quantum leap in engineering, that brings about a new wave of fire safety.

We’ve put together just a handful of the most promising developments in fire safety – the emerging technologies that could change fire safety forever.
