What is a Fire Towel?
Fire Towels are 100% natural fiber, treated with a non-toxic, flame retardant, non-penetrant. Covering the fire with a Fire Towel will cut off the oxygen and extinguish the flame. At 24" x 48" the towel is large enough. It can even be used to cover a pet or child being carried through a fire in an emergency exit. These towels are very handy and can be used extensively in areas like a laboratory, drug storage areas, Machinery, operation theaters, kitchens. etc.
Fire Towel and Fire Extinguisher
When we use a Fire Extinguisher in times of small fire, there is always a chance of the entire premises being filled with gas and powder spilled in the entire area. CO2 Extinguishers are also harmful, when we closely inhale and when we use it in a closed location or confined location without proper knowledge, which to disablement of the body.
And also requires manpower to clean the entire premises. Which would take a lot of time in putting back the entire room in action.
In case the Fire Extinguishers are sprayed on the computers, lab equipments, no doubt it would put off the fire but would consume a lot of your time in cleaning the agents or residues left behind, not only this the computers and equipment would be of no use, this is because the powder deposits itself on the heated surface and the powder could be removed only after scrapping it with a hand chisel. The components and other sophisticated equipment would lose its entire value.
For small fires, we can easily use the Fire Towel and nib the fire in the bud with a very less effort.
