The kitchen fire blanket is perfect for your home, caravan or office. Measuring 1.1m x 1.1m, you’ll be ready to fight a small fire in your kitchen, such as a pan fire, and comes in a soft-case that’ll wipe clean if splashed and is printed with instructions that are simple to follow.
Manufactured from a high-quality coated glass fibre material, Vigil fire blankets are both 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 small kitchen fire blanket is suitable for fires involving cooking fats and oils up to 3 litres and comes with a 5-year warranty. Larger fire blankets are available for commercial use.
With a mounting eyelet for hanging on the wall, the blanket is secured within the pouch using Velcro fastening and 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 kitchen fire blanket works by smothering the fire and cutting out oxygen so it can burn itself out and prevent the fire from spreading.
The economy fire blanket is suitable for small kitchen areas, caravan parks, holiday homes, and landlord flats.
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.
