Fire Retardant Cloth Hoarders
« on: December 09, 2014, 06:43:45 PM »
Not trying to make up new curse words, but I did stumble across this little $10 beauty at Home Depot, also available at WalMart for $20 called the Safeli Fireproof Blanket.
Now I can think of a few uses for a 1m piece of fabric that is fireproof to 1000F/550C.
Apparently they're glass fabric and made in Markham, of all places.
Packed in an 8x8x2" slab, it seems somewhat portable, never needs recharging, doesn't expire and has a lifetime fireproof warranty (which I trust like a "lifetime" warranty on a bulletproof vest  :o ). I don't see a CSA approved sticker on the box anywhere, or  any other form of accreditation from a reputable authority, but they seem darned handy if they work.

Has anyone seen these things in action?

Fire blankets have been around for years. This one is interesting. Could wrap it around you to run out in a fire. May get one.

I have one in my kitchen, I have had it for years now, they are good to have around. They are intended to place over a fire to smother it. They are not large enough to wrap around you. From the second picture in the add it is hard to see how large it is.

It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
