Car fire blanket – Fight electric vehicle fires efficiently
Electric vehicle fire blanket – Electric car fires present a new and unique challenge for firefighters these days because fighting electric car fires is very different from fighting normal car fires. EVs contain lithium batteries, which can generate intense heat. In case of a fire, this can escalate quickly and the fire becomes very difficult to control, particularly at locations like car parks or car decks on ships where vehicles are in close proximity.
At Fire Isolator, we understand the critical need for effective solutions to control EV car fires. That’s why we have developed the Ultimate FI-BL0906 fire blanket—a high-temperature resistant car fire blanket designed to isolate smoke and fire during EV car fires.
The Risks of electric vehicle Car Fires
EV car fires pose unique risks due to lithium batteries. A malfunction of these batteries can cause a heat buildup and ignition, leading to a fire that burns differently and is more challenging to extinguish than traditional car fires. And even after extinguishing the initial flames, battery cells of a lithium battery can remain hot for up to 24 hours, potentially reigniting the fire.
These factors underscore the need for specialized measures to effectively control EV car fires. That is why we created our EV car fire blanket.
Introducing the Ultimate FI-BL0906 Electric Vehicle Car Fire Blanket
Our Ultimate FI-BL0906 fire blanket is specifically designed to address the complexities of electric vehicle car fires. With its high-temperature resistance of up to 1600 degrees Celsius (tested according to ISO EN 13501-1), this reusable blanket provides a crucial way of controlling the situation and minimizing collateral damage when deployed promptly.
Deploying the fire blanket effectively requires a minimum of two people. Carefully positioning the car fire blanket over the burning vehicle, ensuring complete coverage, is essential. Even though the blanket is made of very strong fabric, it is important to handle the blanket with care to avoid damage to the fabric or loops.
It is important to note that while the fire blanket provides control, it alone cannot extinguish the fire in the battery. That is why we offer additional measures for the best results in controlling EV car fires:
- Aerosol units interrupt the chemical chain reactions occurring in the flames and suppress the fire resulting in further temperature reduction.
- The use of a water mist lance to spray a water mist over the blanket in order to reduce toxic fumes and smoke and to keep the car cooled.
A fire blanket for all electric vehicles
Our car fire blanket is not limited to EV car fires—it can also be used for other electric vehicles like e-bikes, e-scooters, and other electric devices. Our fire blankets are even used in museums to protect artifacts in case of fire!
This versatility makes it an invaluable tool for professional firefighters and organizations dealing with multiple fire scenarios. At Fire Isolator, we can make our fire blankets in any size. Ask us for the possibilities.
Our Car Fire Blanket is tested frequently and proven successful
Our Car fire blanket has been rigorously tested according to ISO EN 13501-1 standards, ensuring its quality and reliability. Naturally, we tested our fire blanket thoroughly, but we have also gotten great reviews from our dealers.
For example, our dealer EMSTEC in Korea, has successfully conducted several tests on the Fire Isolator concept. These tests, even showcased on Korean national television, serve as evidence for authorities and government agencies regarding the efficacy of the Fire Isolator.
When it comes to controlling Electric Vehicle fires, the Ultimate FI-BL0906 car fire blanket is a vital tool for professional firefighters, carpark owners, fleet managers, and others responsible for EV car safety.
