Silver Award


DTM-The best lifeguard for home(Spain)

DTM is designed as mysterious pristine looking headphones or earphones, an intelligent device at the service of humanity. This new positioning on the lintel of these partitioning elements that we call door is also vital. The smoke alarm will be more protected and strategically located AGAINST THE RAPID GROWTH OF THE SMOKE MATTRESS THAT IS GENERATED IN ANY FIRE. Our effort has not been directed at optimizing the inefficiencies of current detectors but at analyzing all parameters as a whole and optimizing detectors as a whole. Overcoming obstacles and complex elements such as partitioning (doors), elimination of any installation and increased efficiency, thanks to the duplication of sensors. In short, eradicating practices that create obstacles to security, such as the facility itself, thereby minimizing complexity, with the aim of achieving the highest quality while respecting people and their lives. Studies show that in homes, poor positioning, as well as the lack of control of compartmentalisation translates into failures in the activation and rapid spread of the fire, with very serious consequences. The technical specification we are requesting will allow the industry to move forward in an organized way, since great innovations should not be about good ideas but rather about solving serious problems. Our proposals are not of the "bet on DTM" type, but rather long and sustained commitment and efforts that seek to fundamentally change, as far as possible, the avoidance of victims in house fires and the reduction of damage.
