We supply fire blankets in Cheshire as part of our wide range of fire protection equipment. This safety device is designed to extinguish fires when they start. It consists of a sheet of fire retardant material which is placed over the fire thereby preventing oxygen reaching the fire and smothering it. There are small fire blankets for use in the home and are essential for oil fires. These cannot be put out with water as this just allows the fire to spread so a fire blanket will stop a chip pan fire quickly and safely before it can spread. The same principal can be applied to most fires.
We supply fire alarms and detectors as well as firefighting equipment. In Cheshire, fire blankets along with fire extinguishers that can be useful in containing fires. The blankets are non-flammable and useful in temperatures up to around 900 degrees. They can be used by almost anyone without experience in fighting fires. There are larger blankets that are used for industrial and commercial situations. They are often made from wool and treated with flame retardant chemicals. They can be mounted in a vertical quick release container for ease of access. The fire blanket is also an invaluable tool that can be used if a person catches fire.
