Do Fire Blankets Work?

Fire blankets are designed to extinguish small fires by smothering them, depriving them of oxygen and heat, which are essential components for a fire to sustain itself. Made from flame-resistant materials, fire blankets effectively suppress flames, making them an essential safety tool for homes, kitchens, workshops, and other environments prone to fire hazards.

As with most firefighting tools, fire blankets are more effective against some kinds of fires than others. They are best used against Class A and Class K fires, while their effectiveness may be limited in other situations.

Class A: Fires involving ordinary combustible materials like wood, paper, cloth, rubber, and many plastics.

Class K: Fires involving cooking oils and greases, and animal/vegetable fats.

Happily, these two classes cover the large majority of household fires.

Directions for Use

Using a fire blanket is straightforward and intuitive. In the event of a fire, follow these simple steps:

  1. Remove the Fire Blanket: Quickly remove the fire blanket from its storage container or designated location. Total Prepare’s fire blankets are designed with quick-access straps – simply pull downward on the straps to free the blanket.
  2. Protect Yourself: Ensure your safety by standing away from the fire and covering your hands to avoid burns.
  3. Cover the Fire: Gently place the fire blanket over the flames, ensuring complete coverage and preventing any air from reaching the fire.
  4. Extinguish the Fire: Leave the fire blanket in place for a sufficient period to ensure the fire is fully extinguished.
  5. Cool Down: Allow the covered area to cool down before inspecting for any remaining embers or potential re-ignition.

Remember, always prioritize your safety and evacuate the premises if the fire becomes uncontrollable.

Are Fire Blankets a Good Idea?

Fire blankets offer a practical and effective solution for extinguishing small fires before they escalate into larger, more dangerous situations. They provide peace of mind and an added layer of protection against fire-related accidents in both residential and commercial settings. Investing in fire blankets can significantly enhance fire safety protocols and help minimize property damage and potential injuries. It is recommended to have fire blankets as a part of a larger safety plan alongside smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and an emergency plan.

Are Fire Blankets Reusable?

Yes and no.

If you inspect the blanket after use and find it free of burns or damage, technically you can reuse it. It does, however, become less efficient with each use and it is recommended by fire professionals (and Total Prepare) to replace used fire blankets.

Why Woven Glass?

Woven glass is a preferred material for fire blankets due to its exceptional fire-resistant properties. The tightly woven glass fibers create a durable and heat-resistant barrier that effectively contains and extinguishes flames. Unlike traditional fabrics, woven glass does not combust or melt when exposed to high temperatures, making it an ideal choice for fire safety applications. Additionally, woven glass fire blankets are lightweight, flexible, and easy to handle, ensuring quick and efficient deployment in emergency situations.

Woven glass is a type of fiberglass preferred for situations where strength and durability are essential. Nor all fiberglass is woven glass and may not have the same quality. Woven glass is widely used in industries like: marine, automotive, and aerospace for its excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
