The 1.2m x 1.2m fire blanket is the perfect choice to extinguish small flames in your kitchen and is often found in small commercial kitchens, workplace kitchens, workshops and in your home. The safest and quickest way to tackle a small pan fire involving cooking fats and oils, it’s also suitable to wrap around yourself in the event of clothes catching fire.
Stored within a wipe-clean, soft-pouch case as standard, it’s complete with an eyelet for wall hanging and has printed instructions which are easy to follow. With a 5-year warranty, like all Vigil fire blankets, this is manufactured from a high-quality coated glass fibre material and is performance and quality tested in accordance with BS EN 1869:2019 by SGS Group, the world's leading testing, inspection and certification company. We believe our materials create one of the most effective fire blankets on the market.
The 1.2m x 1.2m fire blanket works by smothering the fire and cutting out oxygen so it can burn itself out and prevent the fire from spreading. Secured within the pouch using Velcro fastening, the fire blanket is easily released by simply pulling the tabs down. To use, unfold the blanket and then carefully place the blanket over the flames by holding the pull tabs.
The 1.2m x 1.2m fire blanket is suitable for small commercial kitchens such as cafes, as well as domestic kitchens, workshops and workplace kitchens.
Anticipated lifespan of this fire blanket: The FIA recommends replacing fire blankets after 7 years. Always replace after a fire.
Special Note: Beware of cheap, untested fire blankets sold on marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay. They often state "C E Standard: 1869-1997" near the top and "Made in P.R.C." near the bottom. Some of these may burn through or actually catch fire when used.
