This fire blanket ID sign indicates which type of fire the fire blanket can put out. Different forms of fire call for different extinguishers. ID signs on all extinguishers and blankets are key in allowing quick recognition of which fire extinguisher is which. This then allows for an untrained user to see which type of fire each of the extinguishers can combat. This quick recognition is the key point in any emergency situation and could be the difference between life or death.
Having a symbol to show where a fire blanket is, is all that is legally required. The upgrade to a fire blanket ID sign is for helping the user who will operate the blanket decipher whether they are using the correct extinguisher for that type of fire.
This sign is photoluminescent. Photoluminescence is the light emission from any form of matter after the absorption of photons. This simply means it can be seen in the dark. This aids for if a fire were to cause a power outage.
Why choose the photoluminescent Fire Blanket ID sign?
A photoluminescent Fire Blanket ID sign is a good choice because it is visible even in the dark or in low-light conditions, thanks to its ability to absorb and store ambient light and then emit it back as a glowing effect. This can help firefighters or other emergency responders quickly identify the location of a fire blanket in an emergency situation, potentially reducing response time and improving safety. Being able to see all the uses and limitations of the fire blanket is crucial.
