Fire and smoke safety for vulnerable residents


Prevents fires and toxic smoke

Airis protects vulnerable people from the risk of fire and toxic smoke inhalation. It doesn’t wait for fires – it prevents them, and all without affecting everyday cooking.

Airis acts proactively, which means a drastic reduction of false fire alarm activations and unnecessary evacuations.

quality of life

Improves quality of life

Airis means safer cooking, bringing extended independence and an improved quality of life for anyone living with physical disability or cognitive diseases.

Airis stove guard prevents fires intelligently

Airis provides fire safety and peace of mind in accommodation for vulnerable people. This can include permanent as well as temporary accommodation – in rehabilitation, for example. It’s important for people to be able to cook for themselves to maintain their independence and sense of dignity.

In Extra Care and Assisted Living accommodation, Airis provides the highest level of fire safety, enabling people to cook safely for themselves without any intervention. But if the kitchen user does make a mistake, such as forgetting that they have a frying pan on the hob, Airis will intervene to prevent fire and smoke.

Airis provides peace of mind for all residents and care personnel.
