German Design Award Nominierung für ÖkoFEN
ÖkoFEN products nominated for German Design Award
ÖkoFEN relies since a very long time on breakthrough innovations. Now the products "Pellematic Smart" and the new heating circuit "Pelletronic Touch" have been nominated for the German Design Award. "The nomination for the German Design Award 2014 honors and motivates our employees and our company entirely" said Managing Director Ing Herbert Ortner. The official awards ceremony will take place in February 2014 in Frankfurt am Main.
International jury selects the winners - ÖkoFEN nominated in two categories
Each year, outstanding excellence in the field of product design are awarded by a panel of international expert jury. The German Design Award is the international premium price of the Frankfurt's Design Council, which represents the German design scene for 60 years. Only competition entries that have been nominated by the Design Council, one of the foundation members or one of the economic ministries of the German states, are counted for the award.
Two ÖkoFEN products have particularly convinced the high-profile panel: The solar heating pellets Pellematic Smart was nominated for "Industrial Goods and Materials" and the master control Pelletronic touch for "Interactive User Experience". Judging criteria are, in addition to the functionality and usability of the degree of innovation, the environmental compatibility and technical quality. "We are looking forward to the awards ceremony in February 2014 in Frankfurt," says Herbert Ortner.
Pellematic Smart highlights the innovative power of ÖkoFEN
As a unique compact device the Pellematic Smart combines a pellet heating system with condensing technology with solar thermal. Both, the buffer tank as well as the entire heating hydraulic, are integrated in a set-up area of only 1.5 m. This smart concept convinced the jury all along the line. "So, the key advantages of Pellematic Smart reflect in the nomination for the German Design Award: An innovative approach of high quality in terms of processing, functionality and ecology", says Herbert Ortner.
Pelletronic Touch – The all-round regulator
The heating circuit controller Pelletronic Touch is the interface between the various components of the heating and hot water supply, and is used to control the entire heating system. It is possible to control the system directly from the boiler, from the comfort of your living room or even on the way. The integrated Online Module can be accessed via Internet from smartphones, tablets or PCs, around the clock from anywhere. The easy control of the system can be performed via a touch screen with an intuitive navigation menu. So, the innovative control program ensures an optimal combustion process and consequently an efficient operation, lowest emissions, lowest pellets consumption and heat at the right time and in the right place.
