HOW TO USE A FIRE BLANKET
Fire blankets are designed as fire safety device and could be used to suffocate the initial phase of a fire or to wrap a person who has been reached by the flames.
This security device is suitable for its use in public buildings, hotels, kitchens and industrial facilities and/or where there is a risk of fire.
Some professional sectors are forced to use fire blankets and other sectors recommend and include them in their laboral risk prevention guides. It is important to ensure when adquiring a fire blanket and in general with all fire safety devices that they meet NFPA regulations (National Fire Plan Association). In fire blankets' case, they must meet UNE-EN 1869 regulations.
Texfire offer different fire blankets models and sizes in order to choose the one that meets your needs.
One of the main advantages of using a Fire Blanket over other systems such as fire extinguishers is that in the event of a fire the flames can be extinguished without harming other elements in the environment. Dust from a fire extinguisher makes it necessary to vacate the work space and carry out cleaning operations in order to resume activity. This does not happen if a blanket is used.
