Fire blankets are essential safety devices which can be used to extinguish incipient fires. The sheet of fire retardant material is placed over a starting fire and smothers it, depriving it of oxygen and avoiding disaster. This means that they are particularly effective when it comes to tackling fires which involve fats, oils and fabrics.
There really is no understating just how important fire blankets are.
Fire blankets started to first emerge alongside fire extinguishers and in the years since they have helped to avoid countless fires growing and spreading into larger and more destructive fires.
Given that these fire blankets are so important, it’s critical that they are appropriately maintained and ready should they need to be used. This is why you should turn to Jim’s for your fire blanket testing needs.
Our team members take their work incredibly seriously and know that they play an important role in protecting you and your property from the dangers of fire. This is why they diligently conduct every inspection in line with Australian standards.
Every six months our safety technicians ensure that your blanket ticks all of the boxes in terms of accessibility. This check ensures that the blanket can easily be seen, is found in the appropriate place and is readily accessible. What’s more, our technicians ensure the installation fits with safety standards.
The signage will also be checked to make sure that it is visible and correct, while the blanket container is also thoroughly inspected. Our technician makes sure that it is securely supported, is clean and free from any damage and has clear instructions with it. We also check to ensure that the record label is attached.
Finally, the fire blanket itself is checked to make sure it isn’t damaged or contaminated in any way and that it is correctly folded.
Together, each of these tests helps to ensure that your blanket will work as efficiently and effectively as possible in the unfortunate event that it needs to be used. Performing these checks is incredibly important, and you can rest assured that our technicians have the appropriate skills.

How Often Do Fire Safety Devices Need to Be Tested?
Maintaining high safety standards on your premises is an ongoing undertaking. Those that have just opened the doors to their business for the first time have a certain peace of mind with regards to its viability and safety. With proper maintenance and continued appraisal of your equipment, you can look forward to a safe working and living environment for many years to come.
Fire extinguishers are just one of the pieces of equipment that need to be maintained regularly. A test is required under AS1851 every six months, in terms of portable and wheeled fire extinguishers. Pressure tests and refills should be carried out at least once every five years. It makes sense that where use is required, professional servicing is carried out to reset the equipment.
At Jim’s Fire Safety, we encourage our clients to follow the rules and regulations with regards to extinguishers, fire hoses, emergency lights, fire blankets and smoke alarms strictly. Some devices require six-monthly tests whereas others will only need to be looked at by a professional once a year. We are the team to call on when you need advice, or if you want to put a proactive maintenance schedule in place. Whether it be smoke alarm testing or just needing to know why thesmoke alarm keeps going off we have the answers.
There are many different unique checks that our technicians carry out that untrained personnel simply will not consider. Fire safety is an area of your business that must be taken seriously. Your investment in our services will afford you a more secure, safe place to live and work.
Detailed Reports and Records
Further to the thorough checks and tests that our experienced technicians complete, each piece of equipment that we inspect that passes the test will have a record created. We deliver detailed reports to our customers so that they can maintain compliance records and demonstrate their adherence to fire safety rules and fire alarm regulations.
At Jim’s, our fire equipment services are of the highest calibre and we invite those determined to create a safe working or living environment to secure their free quote today.
