Do you know all fire blankets applications?
FIRE BLANKETS BRING PROTECTION AGAINST FLAMES BY STOPPING FIRE CONNATES IN OBJECTS AND PEOPLE.
Fire blankets are a product hardly known in our country and people who know it think it is a product to stop fires causes in kitchen by frying pans and fryers. Also, they associate its use to the hostelry sector, particularly to professional kitchens. But, is it the only application that fire blankets have? Is hostelry the only sector where they could be useful? Easy answer, No.
Hostelry sector is NOT the only sector where it has its application.
The own regulation that controls fire blankets (EN 1869:1997), manufacturing parameter, the use to which the product is designed and the testing methods in laboratories to get the official certificate, defines fire blankets as an active protection element against fire before fire connates (which are stopped by suffocation). The blanket is also used to stop fires in clothes or objects, as well as personal protection durec evacuation processes in a fire. So the application range of this product is increased.
In addition, it is very important to know that it has an easy use and does not require any training to use it. If we also add that it has a reasonable prize (depending on the model and the manufacturer), we think that is a product extremely useful in professional sector as well as its domestic use. We will talk about the professional sectors where a fire blanket could be used later on in an extensive way, but now summer is coming and with it outdoors activities like camping or organize barbecues with relatives, attend popular festivals where pyrotechnics are used, the well know Saint John's bonfires, the popular Valencian Fallas... Have a fire blanket by hand could be very useful transforming a big disaster in a mere fright.
From Texfire we adhere to "better safe than sorry" philosophy and we want to advertise the versatility of fire blankets and offer a wide range of them.
