Leading the Way in Property Loss Prevention
For more than 170 years, the work conducted by our scientists and loss-prevention researchers has been the driving force behind FM Global's engineering expertise, and a key factor in understanding and reducing client losses.
At the FM Global Research Campus, we blow stuff up, burn stuff down and recreate nearly every natural hazard that Mother Nature can muster, to understand the hazards that threaten client facilities and reduce the probability and impact of potential loss.
» Fire Technology
Throughout our history, we have worked to advance the understanding of how materials and fire behave, and develop ways to understand, prevent and control fire.
» Natural Hazards
Be it hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, windstorms or freezing temperatures, FM Global research and testing has helped us reduce and prevent loss due to natural catastrophes.
» Electrical Hazards
Research into electrical systems, mechanical and electrical integrity, electrical ignition sources and more are driving new solutions, and a new understanding of these hazards.
Properly functioning sprinkler systems and their complex components are crucial to the protection of client facilities.
Data Sheets and Product Approvals
The cutting-edge research of FM Global frequently spurs new industry standards. The findings form the basis of FM Global Property Loss Prevention Data Sheets—engineering guidelines written to help clients reduce the chance of property loss due to fire, weather conditions and failure of electrical and mechanical equipment—as well as help advance the work of FM Approvals.
