MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / August 9, 2022 / SKYX Platforms Corp. (NASDAQ:SKYX) (d/b/a "Sky Technologies") ("SKYX," "we" or "the Company"), a highly disruptive platform technology company, with over 60 issued and pending patents globally for simplifying and enhancing safety and automation in homes and buildings, today announced that its universal safe installation specifications for plug & play ceiling outlet for lighting and fan products has been officially voted on and approved by ANSI / NEMA, the leading U.S. standardization organizations for the standardization of the SKYX safe weight-bearing plug and outlet/receptacle for ceilings ("SkyPlug").
The American National Standards Institute ("ANSI") is the leading U.S. standards approval organization, whose standards are regularly specified by most architects and engineers for U.S. residential and commercial buildings to ensure safety, quality and reliability. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association ("NEMA") is a standards-developing organization that promotes the standardization of major U.S. electrical products for manufacturers. The achievement of an ANSI / NEMA vote approval is a lengthy and rigorous process, widely considered to be very difficult to achieve. Examples of other products that are standardized include the wall outlet, GFCI bathroom outlet and other key products that are included in every home in the U.S.
The standardization of the SKYX plug & play weight-bearing plug and outlet/receptacle for ceilings by ANSI/NEMA will universally provide SKYX's product specifications to manufacturers to help save lives, time and money for both professionals and consumers, enabling them to install light fixtures and ceiling fans with a safe plug & play installation in just minutes, if not seconds.
Rani Kohen, Founder and Executive Chairman of SKYX Platforms, said: "This standardization approval vote opens the door to major sales and licensing opportunities, as well as a milestone achievement not only for SKYX, but for consumers and professionals across the nation. In today's world, I believe that consumers and professionals shouldn't have to risk their lives standing on ladders for a long time, while touching hazardous wires to install light fixtures and ceiling fans. Additionally, this is a significant development for lighting and fan companies as well as showrooms. It not only saves their customers both time and money, but enables them to safely and quickly replace light fixtures and ceiling fans, and purchase fixtures much more often for a variety of reasons - be that to match fashion trends, accommodate the changing of seasons, holidays and more."
Mark Earley, former Chief Electrical Engineer at NFPA, former head of the NEC and current Chair of the SKYX Safety Advisory Board, said: "This is a significant achievement for SKYX and the safety of U.S. consumers and professionals. With hundreds of millions of installations taking place in the U.S., there are many risks associated with installing or replacing light fixtures and ceiling fans. These risks include injuries and deaths from fires, shocks, electrocutions, and falls from ladders. These risks can be reduced by using the SKYX safe plug and play installation method, that also saves installation time, which substantially reduces time spent on ladders."
Bernard Zyscovich, a leading U.S. architect, internationally recognized design and thought leader, and Chair of the SKYX Architectural & Real Estate Advisory Board, said: "Having the ANSI / NEMA approval vote to include a design of a product is on top of the list for architects and engineers and a substantial deciding factor determining builders' product acceptance. As it reflects product integrity, quality and most important, safety. This achievement by SKYX's ceiling outlet receptacle and plug is ground-breaking."
