BOSS Fire & Safety was recently recognised by the Australian construction industry for their product, the BOSS FyreBox, at the 2018 Australian Construction Awards held in Sydney. The BOSS FyreBox won ‘Product Innovation of the Year’, a category that draws the largest number of nominations at the prestigious industry awards program.

The BOSS FyreBox’s latest recognition follows on from its success at the Fire Protection Industry Awards in November 2017.

BOSS Fire CEO, Mark Prior said:

“We were selected as a finalist with some impressive and leading construction companies, and alongside fabulous other products, so to be chosen as winner was a thrill and a great honour.

“We’ve always known BOSS FyreBox to be a significantly better performer in the passive fire market compared to competitor and replica products, and it’s rewarding to see it recognised by independent organisations that way too. To be able to slash installation time by over 90%, and at the same time eliminate installation risk, the BOSS FyreBox is clearly a game changer.”

Impressed with BOSS’ approach to product development and innovation, the ACA Judging Panel said:

“There are thousands of products and resources catering to the Construction Industry in Australia, so standing out can be a challenge. The industry constantly introduces new and innovative solutions, which enable us to adapt how we design, build, and operate. This category received the most entries.

“There was one company in particular that stood out from the tough competition. This award recognises those who have risen to the challenge through creativity and innovation in their product line.

“The winning organisation has achieved great levels of creativity through innovative product development in the field of passive fire protection.”
