It is with great pleasure that we announce Electrolux Major Appliances NA and Innohome have signed a supplier agreement to bring Innohome’s patented fire safety technology to the North American consumer market.
The purpose of the agreement is to provide the North American market with innovative and cost-effective stove monitoring solutions. Consumers benefit from knowing when potentially dangerous cooking temperatures occur and when temperatures reach a point of imminent fire risk on the stove. The intelligent sensor system seamlessly monitors every cooking situation to visually and audibly alert before a fire can occur.
Innohome looks forward to a longterm collaboration and product development with Electrolux Major Appliances NA in an effort to decrease kitchen fires in North America.
According to studies conducted by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), ranges or cooktops were involved in the 62% of the reported home cooking fires, and unattended cooking was the leading cause of cooking fires and casualties. US fire departments responded to an estimated average of 173,200 home structure fires per year started by cooking activities in 2013-2017, or an average of 470 home cooking fires per day. These fires caused an average of 550 civilian deaths, 5,020 reported civilian fire injuries, and $1.2 billion in direct property damage per year. Innohome and Electrolux NA are excited to join forces to minimize the number of these often preventable fires.
