INNOVATION is one of AQUAEL’s most treasured company values. Innovative ideas of our employees have allowed us to continuously expand our range of products that are trusted by fish keepers around the world.
Over the past five years, AQUAEL has launched a number of unique products, such as shatterproof heaters, canister filters with an external feeding pump, shrimp tanks, and fully equipped marine aquarium sets.
The special AQUAEL INNOVATION research and development programme implemented at our company has allowed us to launch a whole series of products that are ahead of their time. The AQUAEL INNOVATION programme provides support to all the company departments in their efforts to create new and unique products. Its goal is to systematize research and development activities and to set standards for the marketing of novelty products.
The products offered by AQUAEL to its customers worldwide set new canons in technical parameters, usability, and design. One of the achievements of the innovation programme is the introduction of the LEDDY sets. They are the first aquarium sets in the market to feature lids with an inbuilt lighting module employing the ultramodern energy-efficient LED technology. The LEDDY TUBE RETROFIT lighting modules can also be purchased separately to replace the existing T5 and T8 fluorescent lamps.
Fruits of the AQUAEL INNOVATION program are also COMFORTZONE PLATINIUM and ULTRA HEATER heaters, which are characterized by high accuracy and reliability thanks to an electronic thermostat which guarantees the highest durability of heaters. The last achievement of the AQUAEL INNOVATIONS program is the ULTRAMAX canister filter. ULTRAMAX are technically advanced canister filters with patented solutions. They guarantee extraordinary ergonomics of use, they will ensure perfect water purity and its parameters in every, even the most demanding aquarium. The used prefilter limits the frequency of cleaning the cartridges, and placing it in the cover of the device allows its replacement without removing the filter from the cabinet!
According to Mr. Janusz Jankiewicz, CEO of the AQUAEL Company, –
„Every innovation that allows you to get ahead of the competition is your chance to gain new customers. This is the only way to maintain your position in the market and to prevent a reduction in business volume. Many of the Western companies that have opted against the introduction of new solutions are currently experiencing problems. Periods of economic difficulties like the one we are going through now constitute the best test of a brand’s strength. The only businesses to emerge unscathed will be those that are able to recognise the needs of their customers and to satisfy these needs before others do. And that’s exactly our goal!”.
CCA-Notification of Test Results (NTR)
CCA stands for the CENELEC Certification Agreement. CENELEC (Comité Européen de Normalisation Électrotechnique) is an authoritative European organisation that creates safety standards, including the EN norms. Its members are reputable institutes, research laboratories, and certification bodies. They examine product safety in accordance with the currently binding European standards and issue the respective certificates. These certificates are commonly referred to as the European Certificates, and the European Unian is likely to approve this as their official name.
The certificates provide independent confirmation that:
1. the tested product specimens meet all the requirements of the applicable European safety standards
2. the quality assurance system implemented at the manufacturer’s production facilities for series production guarantees product safety. Inspectors from the certifying institution conduct regular checkups of production facilities.
UL / CSA Certificates
Underwriters Laboratories Inc. ® (abbreviated as UL) is a government-approved US company that provides safety certification and develops industrial standards. The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) creates Canadian industrial standards and issues certificates. The UL certificates have been issued to our company in conformity with the respective CSA requirements. Our American products are manufactured under regular supervision by UL inspectors. The certificates issued to our company are listed in the UL online catalogue.
The B-mark certificate is a Polish safety mark. Although certification for the B-mark is no longer obligatory (except for products imported from abroad), in the Polish market, products carrying the B-mark still sell better than those without the mark.
VDE (Verband der Elektrotechnik, Elektronik und Informationstechnik e.V.) is a very well-known German instution, whose logo is recognized and respected wordlwide. The VDE mark on our electric plugs means that they are produced in accordance with the European standards and are safe to use. The certificate is, strictly speaking, an authorisation to use the mark (“Zeichengenehmigung”).
GS / TÜV Certificates
GS (Geprüfte Sicherheit = “Tested Safety”) is a very popular German safety mark. Many of our German customers require that the products we offer carry the GS certification mark. Our company operates under regular supervision conducted by inspectors from the GS certifying institution. The certification mark shown in the picture consists of the GS mark proper (on the right) and of the logo of the issuing institution (on the left).
