Fire Cloak | Electric Vehicle (EV) Fire Blanket
Fire Cloak is a first line of defense in suppressing an Electrical Vehicle (EV) Fire.
At the first sign of danger, the Fire Cloak can be draped over the vehicle to contain a potential fire. If the vehicle is already on fire, then the EV Fire Blanket can be used to cover the car and suppress the flames. Fire Cloak is not only a fire suppression solution but also a containment device.
EV Fires can reach up to 5000 Degrees compared to 1500 degrees in an ICE fire. Not only do they burn hotter, electric vehicles can also reignite up to a month later due to “stranded energy” in the lithium ion battery.
Thermal runaway fires cannot be extinguished by conventional means.
The electrolyte in a Lithium-Ion battery usually contains hydrocarbon solvents which fuels the fire. If unchecked extremely high temperatures can result.
Utilising an EV Car Fire Blanket minimises the combustion potential by depriving the fire of Oxygen. This inhibits the fire and consequently temperatures drop rapidly, reducing potential damage to surrounding vehicles and property.
The EV Car Fire Blanket can be deployed easily by two people and is supplied in a convenient storage holdall for protection and ease of transport.
