EU standard for stove guards published

Cooking-related fires form over a half of accidental house fires in the OECD countries, mostly being caused by cookers. The fires are usually due to user errors and risky usage habits, and could be prevented with cooker safety products such as Innohome’s Stove Guard. However, until now, the lack of commonly agreed upon specifications for their operation and reliability has slowed the spread of this new fire safety solution.

This is bound to change, as the European Stove Guard Standard EN 50615 (“Particular requirements for devices for fire prevention and suppression for electric hobs”) was published on March 6, 2015, by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization. Safety devices that meet standard requirements prevent kitchen fires effectively. The standard brings clarity to the market and acts as an aid in purchase decisions for those wishing to improve their home fire safety.

Innohome Stove Guards were tested by VTT Expert Services to fulfil the new standard requirements.
