As part of its drive to be more environmentally conscious, Aico has announced the launch of its new eco-fit range of alarms. 

The eco-fit range is Aico’s most eco-friendly range to date, the company says, and is exclusive to the 3000 Series of single and multi-sensor alarms. All alarms in this series contain intelligent sensors and utilise Aico’s next-generation of wireless interconnection, SmartLINK, integrating seamlessly with the Gateway for remote monitoring. While retaining all of the features and benefits of the 3000 Series, the new eco-fit range is available as head unit only, meaning there are no easi-fit bases, screw packs, or dust covers included.

This is due to the easi-fit base being universal to all current Aico products so, unless damaged, the bases do not need replacing and are often redundant, contributing to waste plastic. To combat this, the eco-fit range provides a reduction in plastic of 100%. The eco-fit range is ideal for upgrading and retrofitting properties where easi-fit bases are already in situ, making asset management greener and more sustainable.

Aico Product Development Manager Michael Wright commented: “The new ecofit range has been created with sustainability in mind – Aico is committed to reducing waste where possible and providing high quality, sustainable products. Eco-fit packs are the ideal solution where existing easi-fit bases are already installed, as they provide a simple way to install new alarms with minimal packaging waste. The packaging itself is also fully recyclable, all of which helps to support users of our products to reduce their waste when installing alarms”.
