Universities have been using BS EN 50615 cooking safety technology since 2014, when it was introduced to the UK and the first units were installed at the University of Brighton. In addition to the prevention of cooking fires, Universities have reported a significant reduction in false alarms, in some cases upwards of 60%. False alarms are a major risk as students often become complacent and fail to leave the building when an alarm is sounded. Over the past 6 years, this technology has been adopted by numerous universities, colleges and private providers of student accommodation. By the end of 2021, over 10,000 Airis stove guard units will have been installed in this sector alone. A large number of universities and private providers use Airis including University of Brighton, University of Surrey and Unite Students.
