Zenova announces its appointment as an official supplier to the NHS for its Zenova FX range of extinguishers

Initial order of FX500 units already shipped

 

Zenova Group PLC (AIM: ZED), the innovative fire suppression and interdiction solutions Company, is pleased to announce that it has secured its first order to two hospitals in the Epsom and St Helier Trust Hospital group in Surrey.  As of this writing, the Company has already delivered a small batch of FX500 units for use in sensitive areas of the hospitals.

This breakthrough order comes as a result of the hospital decision to deploy the FX500 to protect against lithium-ion battery fires in critical care theatres. The FX 500 is being deployed in the bio-medical equipment workshops and the medical equipment library locations in two hospitals within the Trust based in Surrey.

Coincidentally, Zenova, alongside its sub-distributor, Holistium Technologies Ltd have been appointed permanent, official suppliers to the NHS, one of the first for any specialist extinguisher producer.

Thomas Melchior, CEO of Zenova Group, commented, “This is a major contract win for Zenova and with the largest single institution in the UK, the NHS. This breakthrough for the Group comes as a result of a long period of their testing of our FX extinguishers, as well as the growing concerns around lithium-ion battery fires.   Given the prevalence of equipment powered by such batteries in NHS facilities, this increased awareness will inevitably result in significant sales to follow in the months to come.  We are pleased to be able to provide our proven solution against this safety risk in such a mission critical environment.  As an official supplier to the NHS now, we expect Zenova to be able to leverage this status in the broader marketplace where the NHS is rightly seen has having industry-leading performance standards.”

About Zenova Group PLC

The Group, through Zenova Ltd, is the holder of intellectual property that underpins a suite of fire safety and temperature management products and technology. The product range is applicable to industrial, commercial, and residential markets. The Group’s products include fire retardant paints, insulating paints and render, fire extinguishing fluid and fire extinguishers. Through innovative development, and a refined formulation and development process, Zenova provides industry leading solutions across a range of fire protection and temperature management problems, comprising:

Zenova FP, fire protection paint

A water based, fire protection paint (also known as a ‘thermofoaming’ or ‘intumescent’ paint), which can be used on any surface and colour matched to any colour. When exposed to heat or flames, the paint expands and creates a solid foam-like crust which will not burn and insulates the surface it is painted on. This prevents surfaces from catching fire and stops fire spreading.  It has been tested by global fire industry experts and complies with UK building regulations and the latest UK and European fire safety standards.

Zenova IP, thermal insulation paint

A thermal insulation paint embeds the most modern insulating technology in a thermos-like ultra-thin layer.  It saves energy by increasing the thermal insulation level in commercial and residential buildings. Solar heat can increase the temperature within a building by 75% to 90%. Zenova IP has been independently tested and validated to deflect, absorb and dissipate up to 75% of this heat, thereby reducing the inside temperature by up to 45%.  Suitable for both exterior and interior, on any type of surface

Zenova IR, thermal insulation render

Zenova IR is a ready mixed insulation render that can be applied to internal and external walls in commercial and residential buildings to provide immediate insulation benefits and can be colour matched to any colour.

Zenova FX, fire extinguishers

A fire extinguisher like no other. It puts out class A, B, F, Electrical fires fully tested against European EN3 as well as British standards. Available in 6 and 9 litre sizes.

Zenova FX500, aerosol fire extinguisher

Zenova WB, wildfire barrier

A wildfire barrier fluid (applied via spray wands or aerial drops), which provides a virtual barrier where fire simply will not burn. Repeated tests on a variety of extremely dry wildfire fuels (grasses, hays, brush) demonstrates the incredible fire resistance Zenova WB provides, while remaining viable after application for30+ days in dry conditions.
