Why would you risk it? Five minutes of your time on our new event stand, could save your life.

5 June 2019

As part of Aico’s new Carbon Monoxide campaign ‘Why would you risk it?’, Aico are bringing Virtual Reality to their new stand at large exhibitions throughout 2019.

Aico have chosen to use Virtual Reality for the first time, working in partnership with Altro-Orbis. Virtual Reality is the use of computer technology to create an engaging, immersive virtual environment and is being used to educate Aico’s customers on the effect and symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning and why installing a Carbon Monoxide alarm could save your life. Unlike traditional user interfaces, Virtual Reality places the user inside an experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are immersed and able to interact with 3D worlds.

Steve Birch – Managing Director, Altro-Orbis, “We are delighted to work in partnership with Aico to host their first experience of Virtual Reality on their large stands this year. We look forward to working with Aico to help to educate regarding Fire and Carbon Monoxide safety and help people understand how they can do this.”

Jo white – Marketing Manager, Aico, tested the new Virtual Reality experience this week and comments, “This was a great opportunity to help promote and support the sector and provide training on the required standards for Carbon Monoxide for the fire industry.”

 If you would like to trial the Virtual Reality experience and know more information about Carbon Monoxide please visit Aico at their upcoming shows in June at CEF Live, FIREX and CIH Housing or contact the Technical Team on 01691 664100.
