Fire blankets can be an important part of fire prevention in the home and in a commercial setting. First, they can put out fires that start in areas such as the kitchen. Due to the generally small size of fires started in the home, use of a fire blanket can be an effective method of extinguishing a fire before it spreads. They are especially effective when a person’s clothes have caught on fire. However, they can only be used once so be sure to have your fire blankets replaced regularly after each use.
Fire blankets are effective in the kitchen
Fire in the kitchen can quickly burn out of control due to the presence of cooking oils and fats. Our company’s blankets are designed to extinguish these kinds of Class F fires. They work by cutting off the oxygen supply of class F fires, and eventually smothering them.
This is important if your extinguisher is an Air-Water Extinguisher as water normally exacerbates flammable liquid fires. We make our blankets to Australia’s specifications and different sizes to meet your needs.
Your blankets should be Australian Standards approved — AS/NZS 3504:2006 – Fire blankets. It must measure no less than 1 metre by 1 metre.
