What is Industrial Special Risks Insurance?
Broad business insurance for medium and large businesses with diverse operations and high-value assets.
Industrial Special Risks Insurance is designed to protect you from damage and consequential loss to your physical assets, including buildings, stock, plant and machinery. A policy essentially provides cover for loss or damage to insured property by any cause not expressly excluded by the policy.
It is typically the broadest and the most flexible property policy available. It is recommended to commercial clients with insured values greater than $3 million (although this minimum does vary between insurers).
What does a Industrial Special Risks policy cover?
Why do you need this policy?
Here's an example:
David is a modular home builder with four factories located within a 100km radius of each other around Australia.
All of the factories hold high-value physical assets such as materials, machinery and equipment. During a severe hail storm, all locations suffered damage to the roof and consequential water damage to machinery and equipment.
David's business holds an ISR policy and all locations were insured; only one excess was payable because all locations were affected by the same storm.
Along with the damage, David's business was able to claim for increased costs of working. Some operations needed to relocate to continue to operate the business until the claim was paid.
