Fire Blankets & Maintenance

For residential and commercial premises

Fire blankets can typically be found installed on a wall in kitchens, break rooms, or laboratories that handle oils or fats (lipids). These fire suppression tools are an essential investment in any fire safety compliance plan.

But how do you actually use a fire blanket? And how do you know if your fire blanket needs to be tested or replaced? Working with a team of qualified fire safety specialists can help provide you with answers to both of these questions. Our team at Alexon have extensive experience providing fire blanket testing and maintenance services for a wide range of Melbourne commercial premises, industrial environments, and residential buildings.

If you believe your fire blanket may be damaged or is in an unfit condition for use, call Alexon at 1300 001 004 today to schedule a fire blanket testing appointment for your workplace or building.

HOW IT WORKS

How It Works

4 Step Emergency Exit Light Installation Process

All emergency exits constructed for a residential or commercial building must be fitted with emergency exit lighting that clearly directs building occupants to that exit in the event of a fire or other hazard. If your building or commercial premises boasts an exit that isn’t clearly marked, then you will need to promptly book an emergency exit lighting installation with a fire safety professional.

Our superior fire safety services extend far beyond any single fire system installation job. As firm believers in conducting each and every one of our callouts by the book, our accredited fire safety technicians also utilise Uptick field reporting technology in order to provide all of our clients with highly detailed maintenance logbooks for all the fire safety tools and equipment on their business premises.

Assessment – to start the process, our emergency lighting experts will assess your premise and provide an emergency exit light plan that compleis with Australian regulations.

Supply & Install – once you have approved the quote, we will arrive on time and install each light efficiently; cleaning up in the process.

Testing – before leaving, we will completely test your exit lighting and provide a report of the works that have been completed.

Support & Reporting – utilising reporting technology, we can also provide you with highly detailed maintenance logbook for all of the fire safety equipment at your premise.

What are fire blankets used for?

Made out of fire-resistant fabric like woven glass-fibre, fire blankets are a type of fire suppression system that works by physically smothering fires.

These fire suppression systems are specifically designed to be effective against Class F fires (or fires caused by the ignition of cooking oils or fats).Fire blankets are a unique essential safety measure (or ESM) in that they can’t be depleted like a fire extinguisher. However, fire blankets are actually designed to be used just once. This means that you will need to replace your  fire blanket in the event that it is utilised in a fire-related emergency.

Here is a step-by-step overview of how best to use a fire blanket to suppress open flames:

Step 1

Safe Installation

Install your fire blanket in an easily accessible location where Class F fires may occur (i.e. kitchen facilities) and near an exit door.

Step 2

Correct Usage

When using your fire blanket, take hold of the two bottom tabs at the base of your fire blanket bag to pull the blanket out. Slowly and carefully use your hands to spread the fire blanket out over the fire, covering it entirely.

Step 3

Wait 30 Minutes

Leave your fire blanket over the fire for at least thirty minutes to ensure that the fire has been fully suppressed.

Step 4

Switch off appliances

Turn off your gas/electricity cooktop at the mains if it’s safe to do so.

Step 5

Call emergency services

Call Triple Zero (000) and ask for fire services. If you’ve recently had to follow this process of using your fire blanket, be sure to call your trusted local fire safety technicians here at Alexon to book your next fire blanket installation or testing appointment.

Why work with Alexon for your fire blanket testing services?

Fire blankets work by physically smothering fires and restricting the flow of oxygen that fuels open flames. These innovative fire suppression solutions can be thrown over cooking fat or stovetop fires, or can even be used to wrap around individuals if their clothing has caught fire.

Fire Blanket Installation in Melbourne

According to Australian Fire Safety Standard AS/NZS 3504:2006, fire blankets must measure at least 1 metre x 1 metre and be mounted to a wall in commercial kitchen, break room, and laboratory spaces.Fire blankets must be mounted using one or two brass ferrule mounting holes, depending on the size of your blanket, and should be installed in an accessible location for ease of use in the event of a Class F fire-related emergency.

Fire blankets must also have a maintenance tag that outlines the testing and servicing is up-to-date and in accordance with Australian Standard 1851, which pertains to the maintenance of fire safety systems and equipment requirements. Our fire safety technicians at Alexon are equipped to provide service and maintenance for fire suppression systems (including fire blankets) so you can secure compliant maintenance tags for your fire blanket after every scheduled servicing appointment.
