CAR FIRE BLANKET

Ref:
63-024

CAR FIRE BLANKET FOR PETROL, DIESEL AND ELECTRIC CARS

The Texfire fire blanket for cars is a fire blanket, designed to extinguish fires in combustion vehicles, petrol or diesel indistinctly and also to contain flames in electric cars. It is made of fibreglass fabric coated on both sides with a polymer. It incorporates 4 grips to facilitate its placement, 2 dark-coloured on the right side and 2 light-coloured on the left side.

With a surface area of 6x9 m (54 m2) this blanket can cover most cars in case of fire, even SUV's and off-road vehicles. In case of fire, it is recommended that at least 2 people should be present in the event of a fire, for safety reasons. The car fire blanket has an approximate weight of 28 kg.

The effectiveness of the car fire blankets lies in their ability to control and smother the flames. In electric cars, the blanket helps to keep the fire under control and facilitates the work of the security forces, being able to extinguish the fire depending on the type of electric battery installed.

The use of this fire blanket has multiple advantages over other fire fighting systems to extinguish flames in a car, such as powder extinguishers or water hoses:

  • It is not necessary to have a water supply or tank nearby.
  • Only 2 people are needed to extinguish a burning car.
  • Can be easily stored, does not expire.
  • No fire-fighting training is necessary.
  • Prevents fire from spreading to nearby vehicles or surrounding facilities.
  • Contains toxic fumes from combustion.
  • Contains the opaque fumes, allowing a perfect view and control of the situation.
  • Prevents installations, such as underground car parks, from being damaged by smoke or other incandescent particles in suspension.
  • Prevents fire debris from leaking into the sewage system, as is the case with the use of water.
  • It does not leave any traces of particles in suspension or deposited on surfaces, as is the case with fire extinguishers.
  • Can be used near electrical panels or other water-sensitive installations.
  • It greatly limits the damage caused by the fire.
  • Facilitates the action of the fire brigade both in terms of resources and time.

The car blanket is delivered in a textile bag for easy transport and storage. As an option, Texfire offers:

  • A more abrasion-resistant, waterproof, watertight and more resistant to mechanical stress.
  • A rigid wall-mounted cabinet, with rubber seals to prevent water and dust penetration. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

APPLICATIONS

APPLICATIONS

  • Gasoline cars.
  • Diesel cars.
  • Electric cars.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES WARNING

Using this blanket in electric vehicles will help prevent flames from spreading, but it will hardly completely extinguish the fire. When an electric vehicle catches fire, battery acids generate flammable gases. This means that even if a blanket is used to "smother" the fire, the battery will generate enough combustible gases to prevent the fire from being completely extinguished.
