“The board of directors at SORF and I think Testhornet is not only a very useful tool it is a great way to spread the message of our organization and our brand. The combination of an extra-long, quality shoehorn and the importance of regularly testing smoke-alarms is unbeatable. Many forget that the control of smoke-alarms is actually part of the systematic fire protection work. We use Testhornet in many different contexts where they are very well received.”
–Mats Svensson, Rescue Services Head for Southeast Skåne
“The shoehorn is perfect for all our seniors! It helps to reduce falling accidents, which is one of the most common causes of death when testing a smoke-alarm. Do you not think about fire prevention before, then you’re are to the rats!”
–Thomas Andersson, Security Chief for Simrishamns, Sjöbo and Ystad Municipalities
Various insurance companies in the Nordic region use Testhornet as a giveaway in promotions and events. The shoehorn fits perfectly into their business because a functioning smoke alarm both saves lives and property. They earn from it, both customers and the insurance companies.
“Seniormässan (The Senior Expo) was a real success. Over 500 people tried to extinguish a fire with fire extinguishers and they received Testhornet as a reward. The questions were many and thankfully everyone that took part had a smoke-alarm. However, it turned out that many were not regularly tested and a surprisingly large number had placed the smoke-alarm on a bookshelf. Testhornet’s stand really did attract a lot of people and interest.”
–Lars Wendel, Vice Chairman, Fire Protection Association, Värmland, Fire Chief and previously Head of Information for Rescue Services, for the Karlstads region
“When renting out an apartment, we at Lundbergs, make sure that the apartment is equipped with at least one smoke-alarm and that it is fully functioning when occupants move in. The difficulty is ensuring that our tenants then test their smoke-alarms regularly. By investing in Testhornet we have simplified that process. Thanks to Testhornet, we are confident that more people will test their smoke-alarms more often and thereby prevent fire related accidents.”
–Jessica Ohlsson, Communications Officer Fastighets AB L E Lundberg
“After many years in the shoe industry, I have seen many different shoehorns. The length and quality of Testhornet is very good. And if I’m honest, I’ve been bad with testing my own smoke-alarm, but now it’s easy – totally unbelievable.”
–Tage Sundblad, Cobbler, Tage Skomakeri in Lund
Testhornet is supported by various fire organisations in the Nordic region.
