Flame effects are often the most visible aspects of an event and with their high profile nature it is critical that their appearance and performance are exceptional to set the perception of the events to follow. FCT Flames has the complete and proven team to design, manufacture and deliver spectacular, reliable and safe ceremonial, entertainment and decorative flames. Highly skilled engineers carry out our projects from conceptual stages and laboratory trials through to detailed design, manufacture, equipment delivery and commissioning to address the needs of our customers in the most effective way.


FCT Flames uses patented and proprietary designs and modelling techniques in the delivery of our projects to ensure that every flame system performs to the highest standards and is matched to its environment. The company remains at the forefront of technical development through our research partner, the University of Adelaide, and linkages to other research establishments in the UK, US and Europe. FCT Flames has our own laboratories and test facilities as well as access to those of the University of Adelaide.
