Things to Consider

  • Quality and Material: When purchasing fire blankets, it is important to consider the quality and material used. Look for fire blankets made from durable and flame-resistant materials such as fibreglass or wool.
  • Size and Coverage: Consider the size of the fire blanket and ensure it is large enough to cover the potential fire hazard adequately. It should be able to fully wrap around a person or cover a small fire effectively.
  • Certification and Standards: Check if the fire blanket meets relevant British safety standards, such as British Standard BS EN 1869:1997. Look for certification marks or labels to ensure that it has been tested and approved for use.
  • Packaging and Storage: Consider the packaging and storage options provided with the fire blanket. Look for compact and easy-to-access packaging that allows for quick deployment during emergencies. Additionally, check if the blanket comes with a storage bag or container for proper protection when not in use.
  • Maintenance and Cleaning: Find out if the fire blanket requires any specific maintenance or cleaning procedures. Some blankets may need to be professionally cleaned after use, while others can be cleaned using domestic methods. Consider the practicality of these requirements for ongoing use.
  • Instructions and User-Friendliness: Ensure that the fire blanket comes with clear and easy-to-understand instructions for proper use. Look for diagrams or illustrations that demonstrate the correct deployment technique. Consider the user-friendliness of the blanket, especially in high-stress situations.
  • Accessibility and Visibility: Consider how easily accessible the fire blanket will be in case of an emergency. Look for features such as wall-mounted brackets or hooks that allow for quick retrieval. Additionally, check if the blanket has high-visibility markings or colours to aid in locating it during emergencies.
  • Compatibility with Fire Safety Equipment: If you already have other fire safety equipment in place, such as fire extinguishers or fire alarms, consider the compatibility of the fire blanket with these systems. Ensure that the blanket can be easily integrated into your existing fire safety protocols.
