In a market without standards or minimum requirements, orientation is difficult. Let’s take a look at the large-format extinguishing blankets made of fibreglass fabric with silicone coating. Do the products deliver what the manufacturers promise?

We asked the STFI, the Saxon Textile Research Institute, to independently investigate the question of whether the properties of the fire blankets correspond to the specifications.

Vlitex Features Loeschdecke ueberlegen
Fire blanket is simply placed over the fire object

Easy handling - two people are enough to spread the blanket and put it over the vehicle.

Vlitex Löschdecke Features Brand unter Kontrolle
Fire is kept under control

Conventional fires suffocate due to the lack of oxygen. Battery fires can burn under the ceiling in a controlled manner. The environment is protected.

Vlitex Löschdecke Features Rauchentwicklung sofort reduziert
Immediately significantly reduced smoke development

Less smoke also means fewer toxins entering the environment

Vlitex Löschdecke Features Temperatur abgeschirmt
Protects the environment from heat

After only a short time, we measure approx. 120 °C on the ceiling surface and just 40 °C in the immediate vicinity.

Vlitex Löschdecke Features hält herumfliegende Teile zurueck
Keeps flying parts back

Exploding battery cells in particular pose a danger to the environment.

Vlitex Features Loeschdecke keine Kontaminierung der Umwelt
Comes without contamination of the environment

No contaminated extinguishing agents in the environment that would actually have to be treated, thus low cleaning effort and low follow-up costs.

In a market without standards or minimum requirements, orientation is difficult. Thus, many products do not deliver what they promise. This makes it all the more important for us to have the quality of our products checked again and again by independent tests.

The VLITEX Premium M fire blanket is the only blanket certified for its suitability to contain battery fires (as of August 2022). Internationally renowned institutes have been able to convince themselves that the VLITEX Premium M fire blanket can withstand a battery fire.

Yes, we are very proud of that!

Our mission: fire protection. Environmentally friendly.

Who we are

We have been specializing in technical textiles for over 20 years. We develop and distribute innovative products made of fiberglass. With VLITEX fire blankets, we contribute to making the work of fire departments and firefighters more environmentally friendly.

What we offer

VLITEX fire blankets are made of fiberglass fabric coated with silicone. They are a very environmentally friendly and resource-saving alternative in fire fighting and preventive fire protection. Conventional fires are extinguished with their help by cutting off the oxygen supply. Lithium-ion battery fires, which require no external oxygen supply, can be controlled under the blanket. Smoke and heat are significantly reduced and, in addition, no contaminated extinguishing agents are released into the environment. VLITEX extinguishing blankets are therefore an environmentally friendly and resource-saving alternative for fire fighting.
