Fire Blanket - 1mtr x 1mtr
Suitable for class F fires - Cooking oils and Fats
Every kitchen should have one handy
Fire blankets are made out of fire-resistant fabric and are used to smother flames caused by cooking or clothing fires. They should be located in the kitchen far enough away from the stove so they can accessed if there is a fire on the stove. Fire blankets may be used as a thermal barrier against radiated heat. In the case of a clothing fire, the victim should be wrapped in the blanket and rolled on the ground. Note, the 1mtr x 1mtr sized blanket is not large enough for an adult clothing fire; the 1.8m x 1.8m blanket would be a better buy for this purpose.
Do not use on Flammable gas or electrical equipment fires
Only use on a very small and contained fire
Once used in a fire, they should be replaced.
Marine regulations require that a fire blanket must be carried on vessels where cooking facilities are located in an enclosed space, e.g. the galley on a yacht.
