Oval Fire Products, a Chicago-based fire and safety startup, raised an undisclosed amount in its Series A round of funding.
Backers included President of WaterSaver Faucet Co. Steve Kersten; John Ronan Architects Founding Principal John Ronan; and Vice President at Guardian Equipment Carsten Birch.
The company intends to use the funds for product development and go-to-market strategy.
Led by Kevin Kozlowski, president and CEO, Oval Fire Products offers a 10-pound fire extinguisher that measures three inches deep, thereby fitting in a flush, fully recessed cabinet without requiring a change from the standard 3 5/8 inch wall studs. It also meets the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), ANSI/ICC A117.1, and ISO 21542 requirements related to height of installation and protrusion limits.
