What are fire blankets used for?

Fire blankets are an important fire safety measure. Made of fire-resistant materials, fire blankets are particularly useful for smothering fat pan fires or wrapping around a person whose clothing is on fire.

Fire blankets and associated products are a vital safety measure you should be providing. Especially within the workplace, fire blankets provide an extra level of safety for your employees. Wherever you are, there is always a risk of a fire and a fire blanket is a necessity should a fire occur. You may never have to use it, but a fire blanket is a necessary precaution to take, just in case.

IC International has over 25 years of experience in the manufacturing and supply of fire blankets and associated products. Their brand BRIDELA™ is highly respected and known around the world. They have been independently tested and certified and fully comply with the requirements of the British/European standard BS EN 1869. It is especially important to supply fire blankets in public areas where you could be held liable. These include schools, hotels, student accommodation, offices and restaurants. It is also essential in areas that may be at higher risk of a fire, such as commercial kitchens, factories and laboratories.

IC International’s fire blankets are made from woven glass fibre fabric and are completely asbestos-free. They work by draping them over the fire, depriving it of oxygen. In the serious event of someone’s clothes catching fire, they can also be wrapped around the person. When a fire strikes you have to act fast, making sure you have a fire blanket to hand could save lives by helping contain or completely eliminate a fire.
