This 1.8m x 1.2m fire retardant fiberglass fabric fire blanket is designed to extinguish small fires. The blanket will suffocate the flame quickly and is ideally kept in your kitchen, workshop, boat, caravan, 4WD or at the campsite.
With the appropriate training, a fire blanket can protect you from the fires heat allowing you to get up close to the flame to extinguish it. Once you have got close enough to the flame, you will be able to place the fire blanket over the fire. Placing a correctly sized fire blanket over the fire will then smother it and render it safe from causing further destruction. Should you like training on how to use a fire blanket and fire extinguishers, PTI offers a nationally recognised course delivered by professional firefighters that will teach you how to assess the risk and fight fires safely.
