Protect Students from Fires and Smoke
Airis doesn’t wait for fires. It prevents them from ever starting using advanced technology fit for modern fire safety. Normal, safe cooking is not affected.
Avoids false alarms
Airis dramatically reduces false fire alarms as well as activations of other systems, such as suppression hoods and sprinkler systems. Deploying Airis means real alarms are taken seriously.
Reduces smoke inhalation risk
Airis can act before significant smoke is produced, preventing fire system activations. This means safer students, a safer kitchen and a safer building. This is indispensable in studio apartments.
Airis stove guard prevents fires intelligently
Airis is widely deployed in thousands of UK student kitchens, in both the private sector and university accommodation. Fitting Airis is now established practice across many universities and private student accommodation providers in new schemes, during refurbishments and in retrofits.
Students are widely recognised as a high-risk category for cooking incidents due to lack of experience and the likelihood of being distracted. This risk can be exacerbated by the use of alcohol and recreational drugs.
Airis prevents fires and can greatly reduce smoke, and students don’t even know it’s there unless it acts to prevent a dangerous situation.

Airis stove guard - a case study in Student Accommodation
Over 1000 Airis stove guard units are installed at the Universities of Surrey and Leicester. With their cooperation, we were able to retrieve data collected over a period of several months from around 20 kitchens at each university, with a mix of ceramic and metal plate type cookers/hobs each university. The chart illustrates the positive effect of Airis.
The frequency of Airis interventions was consistently around double for metal plate hobs than for other types. This is likely to be down to the slow response time in heating and cooling which is characteristic of this type of stove.
In some kitchens, Airis intervened in as many as 13% of cooking sessions. It is important to note that while Airis will not interrupt normal safe cooking, it can often detect when a pan has boiled dry or food has started to burn. Airis, therefore, intervenes to prevent a kitchen filling with smoke and prevents damage to hobs and pans, well before a dangerous situation develops.
