Innohome settles the IPR dispute

Innohome’s core, as also included in the company name, is in innovation and providing fire safety to homes. Since 2005 we have invented devices to prevent the kitchen fires and electrical fires at homes. The significant number of patents granted for our products throughout the years are there to protect our original ideas and product innovations.

Recently, we received another proof of the strength of our IPR as Norwegian Board of Appeal for Industrial Property Rights recognized the validity of Innohome patents in Norway. Norwegian Board of Appeal organization is an independent, court-like, body under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries.

Innohome has been in litigation process against one of its competitors, Safera Oy, for several years in the market court of Helsinki Finland. Innohome is proud to announce, that the companies have reached a settlement this month and the dispute is over.

We happily continue the work to improve the fire safety of homes with our own products, as well as through licensing. Approximately 50 % of all home fires start in the kitchen and with Stove Guards most of them could be prevented.

Increasing Nordic fire safety: Franke Futurum’s cooker hoods with integrated Stove Guards soon available

Franke Futurum’s and Innohome’s collaboration is bringing advanced cooker hoods to the Nordic market to prevent kitchen fires. Over 50 % of all home fires start in the kitchen and mainly from the stove. Almost all of them could be prevented with stove guard technology. Norway has been the forerunner in fire safety and stove guards have been mandatory there since 2011. As the Norwegian regulators have already noticed, a stove guard with a permanent power supply, is the best and most effective way to prevent fires in the home. We look forward to bringing this technology to new and existing markets and thus actively contributing to an improved fire safety in Nordic homes.

The first Futurum series cooker hoods with integrated Stove Guards are available in September 2020. They are sold by Franke to construction companies and installed in apartments with central ventilation. The same models will be available through Franke’s wholesale channels later on. Next year also traditional cooker hoods with motor and integrated Stove Guards are available under Franke brand through retail sales points.
