Jalo Helsinki's aim is to save lives through the creation of their fire safety products.
The company was founded in 2009 by Olli Nuutila and Mikko Järvenpää. They dreamed of revolutionising the common smoke alarm into a beautiful and well-designed object. In 2012 Jalo Helsinki launched their first smoke alarms in Finland, which immediately garnered a great deal of attention in the press.
2013 saw the company breakthrough into the European market thanks to tradeshows and the products won numerous design awards internationally.
Their success in Europe has subsequently led the brand to launch a series of fire blankets designed by highly regarded Finnish designers and a kitchen fire extinguisher, as well as ten-year battery smoke alarms.
