You should never mess around with fire safety, and we don’t here at Glenco. That’s why we recommend the use of fire blankets in your home or business premises. Your home should always be a safe place. However, if proper safety and fire protection precautions are not in place, you and your family are vulnerable whilst in your home, not to mention the danger to your home itself. 

We advise taking every step possible to prevent fire becoming a safety hazard in your home, and our professional electricians would love to have a chat about how to best protect your family and your colleagues. Fire safety is an ongoing process, rather than a one-off act. We’ll help you stay compliant and most importantly, stay safe. Get in touch with us now on 02 9700 996, because we can help with:

  • fire blanket Sydney installation;
  • fire blanket replacement;
  • fire safety training;
  • many more safety services. 

What is a Fire Blanket

A fire blanket is a highly flame resistant blanket that is used to put out fires, or to wrap around someone who has caught fire. Made of a fire-retardant material, they work by smothering the fire and not allowing any oxygen to get to it. Small, compact and effective, they’re a popular choice of fire safety device. 

Fire blankets are a great option for when you are cooking and working in the kitchen. Having a fire blanket handy means there will be no fuss when it comes to a fire breaking out. In the unfortunate event this does happen, you can quickly extinguish the flames with a fire blanket that is kept in a convenient location.

Benefits of a Fire Blanket

Fire blankets are a standard around commercial properties in Australia, particularly in the kitchens of restaurants and cafes. They’re popular for a reason, because they come with many benefits and have a solid track record of putting out fires that could develop into something more serious. Here are some of the benefits of fire blankets:

  • Fire blankets are easily handled, making them more accessible and useful to people who don’t have the upper body strength to handle a fire extinguisher. Fire extinguishers can also be quite confusing, whereas a fire blanket is easy to use.
  • A fire blanket is particularly effective at controlling a fire in the early stages. A pot of burning oil or some other kind of fire in the kitchen is best put out using a fire blanket. Throwing water on it can have disastrous effects, while using a pot lid could end up with you fanning the flames. 
  • Fire blankets are good for personal protection. If a part of your body or your hair, or anyone else’s in the kitchen, catches on fire, a fire blanket is the most effective way of putting it out. 
  • Fire blankets are small and compact. They don’t take up much room, yet for their size they’re extremely effective. Their versatility means they can be used in both domestic and commercial situations. 
  • A fire blanket is a cost effective solution. Not only are they inexpensive, they require no maintenance other than to be replaced once used.

I would like to thank Glenco for their wonderful customer service, from quoting through to installation of my air conditioner, the process was seamless. I would especially like to thank your technicians Shareen and Liam. They were efficient and very quiet, but most importantly they left my home cleaner than it was when they arrived. I would highly recommend this business, well done Glenco.

Shareen and Keenan installed a new ducted AC for our house. They were on time, professional and cleaned up after. The installation went very smooth and we are extremely happy with the result; just in time for summer! Nathan Farr from the electrical team came and ran the new AC circuit. He was very friendly and communicative of how he was going to run the cabling and it was all done in a very neat manner. Thank you team! I would highly recommend Glenco and will be using them again in the near future!

Thank you Rhys and the rest of the crew at Glenco.

Glenco were very responsive to my request and booked my job immediately. Communication and updates were effective. Rohan (Glenco technician) effectively completed installation of five ceiling fans. He maintained social distancing and wore a mask the whole time and cleaned up when the job was complete. He was very professional and I would recommend his services in the future.

Nathan was brilliant! Our electrics were damaged by the storm. Nathan was prompt, thorough and ensured our home was safe after a big storm. He was reassuring of our safety, fixed the problem, and helped guide recommendations of what to do next.

I have been overjoyed to find an electrical company that was reliable, timely, and who carried out the work required to a very high standard. My technician was very personable (clearly loves his job) and exact with the installation, so that the range hood and downlights look great. What a treat!
