Design & Construction.
Fiber glass material is exactly how it sounds like – Threads of glass. Glass is heated to an ultra high temperature until it melts and forced into holes to form threads of glass. Depending on the material property required, it is then mixed with a variety of other raw materials.
Incredibly tough, it does not decompose and will never expire. Because of its high resistance to heat, it is often used to make fire blankets. The Hercules fire blanket has been tested to 550 degrees Celcius,
Being very light, it is also suitable to be placed in vehicles, forklifts, cars, buses and ships.
Fibreglass itself will not decompose easily which makes it virtually maintenance free.

How to use a fire blanket on a kitchen fire
Before you use a fire blanket, always ensure you have an escape route. When in doubt, always choose to run.
|1. As early as possible, the electric or gas heat source must be turned off.|
|2. Remove fire blanket from cover and hold the edges of the fire blanket towards you so that your hands do not get burnt.|
|3. Slowly cover the fire with the fire blanket. Do not throw the blanket!|
|4. Remove the fire blanket only when it is cool to touch. (Usually 20minutes+)|
Do note that a fire blanket is a one use item even though it does not expire. Replace it immediately after use. Prematurely removing the fire blanket before it has cooled down sufficiently or not turning off the source of heat will cause the fire to reignite.
This product complies to the stringent BS EN 1869:1997 Fire Blanket Standards.
BS EN 1869:1997 Fire Blanket Standards test methods include:

In commercial properties, a fire blanket does not replace the legal requirements for portable fire extinguishers. Fire blankets are meant to be a superior companion to fire extinguishers. For commercial kitchens, we recommend placing the Hercules 6L Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher. It has been tested for the toughest kitchen fires.
