To use the fire blanket, simply pull it over a fire and cover it for 20 minutes to ensure that the fire is fully put out. It helps to cut the oxygen supply escalating the fire and controls it in less than 20 seconds.
The fire blanket suppresses toxic gases and harmful smokes immediately in fossil cars. The same immediate result is also achieved in electric cars, whose batteries have not been affected by the fire.
The blanket is designed for cars and small fires but the company also makes fire blankets for house fires that are designed to block fire from the forest or other buildings.
