Our company, Hazred, Lda., is dedicated to protecting infrastructures against forest and rural fires. Our proprietary and patented integrated solutions can be manual, remote-controlled or fully automatic, with passive and active components, for application in areas with or without water availability. All our solutions and components have been thoroughly tested and validated by CEIF – Center for Forest Fire Studies and the Institute of Systems and Robotics of the University of Coimbra, in laboratory and field tests.
Each site to be protected is subject to a prior survey where our specialists make an appropriate analysis of the space conditions and surrounding areas, analyzing the risk to which the facilities are exposed, so that we can subsequently propose measures to mitigate the existing risk. Forest and rural fire protection is our major specialty, which is the result of the knowledge and experience gained over several decades of studying forest and rural fires.
The company, founded in 2019, resulted from a research project called Fireprotect – Systems for the Protection of People and Critical Elements Exposed to Forest Fires, a project co-financed by the European Fund for Regional Development under the reference CENTRO-01-0246-FEDER- 000015, which developed various products and solutions for protecting infrastructures against forest and rural fires.
