FIRE BLANKET FOR PETROL AND DIESEL CARS
Texfire’s car fire blankets are designed to extinguish fires in motor, gas or diesel vehicles indistinctly. Tailored with a fiberglass fabric recovered with a polymer on both sides. It incorporates 6 grips, dark in color on the right side and light in color on the left side, to facilitate placement. Car fire blankets are delivered inside a textile rucksack to ease its transportation and storage.
With a surface of 6x9 m (54 m2), this blanket allows to cover most cars in case of a fire, even SUVs and 4x4. For its correct placement and because of safety measures, in case of fire the intervention of at least 2 people is recommended. The car fire blanket weighs approximately 28 kg.
The efficiency of car fire blankets resides on its ability to extinguish a fire in only a few minutes, through the fire suffocation way. The use of this fire blanket has several advantages in relation to other fire systems to extinguish flames in a car, like powder fire extinguishers or water hoses:

- Only 2 people are needed to extinguish a car on flames.
- Can be stored easily, it does not expire.
- Any kind of anti-fire training is not needed.
- It avoids that fire spreads to vehicles nearby or surrounding installations.
- It contains the toxic smokes derived from combustion.
- It contains the opaque smokes, which allows a perfect vision and situation control.
- It avoids that installations, like underground parking lots, are damaged with smoke and other incandescent particles in suspension.
- It avoids that the remains of the fire are filtered in the sewage, as it happens with water use.
- It does not leave any trace of particles in suspension or placed over surfaces as it happens with fire extinguishers.
- It can be used close to electrical panels and other installations sensible to water.
- It largely limits damages caused by the accident.
- It eases the firefighter’s performance both in resources and in time.
