VLITEX Car Fire Blanket Premium S

Quickly smother fires

Smothering conventional fires – that’s what the VLITEX Fire Blanket Premium S can do. And no additional extinguishing agents, i.e. water, powder or foam, are required for this. We can imagine numerous other applications besides fighting vehicle fires. Wherever a fire needs to be controlled quickly and where the routes for hoses or tankers are inconvenient, the fire blanket is ideal. It is carried to the site in a suitable carrying bag and spread out over the hazardous object.

Firefighting with silicone-coated fiberglass blankets is a resource-saving, environmentally friendly method. The fabric permanently withstands temperatures of up to 600 °C, in peaks even 1,000 °C. By interrupting the oxygen supply, a fire goes out within a short time. For use with e-vehicles, we recommend the Premium M version.

Fight fire. Fast and intuitive.


Fast and intuitive handling

Environmentally friendly

Extremely temperature resistant

Smoke control

Reusable several times


No contamination of the environment with water or other extinguishing agents

What is the difference between fire blankets made of silica and fire protection blankets made of special glass fiber fabric?2024-02-15T09:46:37+01:00

Both silica and silicone-coated fiberglass are effective materials for fire-rated blankets, but there are some differences:

Material and properties

  • Silicone-coated glass fiber fabric: Glass fiber fabric is a material consisting of extremely fine glass fibers. It is known for its resistance to high temperatures, its excellent tensile strength and its good insulating properties. The silicone coating improves the fire-retardant properties of the fabric, ensures an increased smothering effect and thermal insulation of the fire. It also contributes to increased resistance to weathering, UV radiation and chemical influences.
  • Silica (silicon dioxide): Silica fiber fabric has a high proportion of pure silicon dioxide. It has an even higher temperature resistance than glass fiber fabric and retains its strength and flexibility even at extremely high temperatures. It is also chemically inert, which means that it does not react with most chemicals.

Temperature resistance

  • The temperature resistance of silicone-coated glass fiber fabric depends on the type of glass fiber. The Premium M from VLITEX can withstand temperatures of up to 1,000 °C, and even 1,300 °C for short periods.
  • Silica fiber fabric withstands temperatures of up to 1,500 °C.


  • Silica blankets are usually more expensive than blankets made of silicone-coated glass fiber fabric due to the higher cost of the pure silica fibers.
  • While blankets made of special glass fiber fabric can be used several times depending on the fire load, the silica blanket is a purely disposable product because its fibers shrink when exposed to heat.
Do blanket fabric or silicone coating carry a risk to the environment?2022-09-08T16:51:52+02:00

No, our special fiberglass fabric is not classified as an environmentally harmful or even hazardous material. And the silicone coating does not release dangerous toxins into the environment. The silicone also does not contain perfluorinated and polyfluorinated alkyl compounds known as PFAS.

Does the blanket need to be serviced or does it have an expiration date?2022-05-10T18:55:28+02:00

No, a new ceiling is weatherproof, maintenance-free and without expiration date.

In principle, this also applies to used blankets. Here, please note that the ceiling is contaminated with toxic fire residues. So store in such a way that this does not cause any adverse effects.

How often can the blanket be used?2024-02-15T09:16:32+01:00

It depends on the fire load: How long was the blanket exposed to how high temperatures? Has it possibly been mechanically damaged, i.e. has cracks or holes?

We have observed that sometimes the silicone coating reacts and white spots are seen. A perfectly normal reaction where the silicone coating burns into the fiberglass. The function of the ceiling is not affected!

Cracks and holes up to the size of a handball do not negatively affect the effectiveness of the blanket.

Does the fire blanket stop liquids?2022-05-10T18:55:36+02:00

In principle, yes. In one experiment, the blanket was filled with water and it was observed that the water held. Even acids or alkalis cannot harm it.

How is a fire blanket disposed of when it can no longer be used?2022-05-10T18:55:36+02:00

The fire blanket itself does not contain any substances that require special disposal. It should simply be put in the household waste. After the fire, however, toxic residues adhere to it, making it necessary to dispose of it properly – together with the remaining fire debris.

How to clean the fire blanket after use?2022-05-10T18:55:35+02:00

The fire blanket can be cleaned in the same way as firefighting clothing. Alternatively, dirt and fire residue can be removed with water and a broom at an approved wash station.

Important: Fire residues contain toxins. Please exercise due care and always put the protection of health first. So, it may be appropriate to dispose of a blanket after a fire incident.

Can the fire blanket extinguish a battery fire?2022-06-30T21:11:05+02:00

No, because a battery fire cannot be extinguished by oxygen deprivation. Here, the ceiling acts as a shield against surrounding objects or even building fabric. This is because flames and heat remain under the ceiling and smoke development is greatly reduced. In addition, flying parts can be stopped.

The Premium M fire blanket is certified – what does that mean exactly?2022-05-10T18:55:33+02:00

An independent, international testing institute confirms that the material can withstand temperatures of over 1,000 °C. Write to us if you need more detailed information about this.

Can the ceiling withstand sharp edges?2022-05-10T18:55:28+02:00

The ceiling is highly resistant to tearing. The maximum tensile strength of the fabric is 2,200 N / 5 cm. Theoretically, an ordinary car could be suspended from a 1 x 1 m piece of fabric without it tearing.

However, we have already inspected damage to fire blankets caused by improper application or removal. Therefore, we recommend to practice overlaying the ceiling. Because with the right momentum, the fire blanket glides over the fire object almost as if on a cushion of air and then sinks. Likewise, the removal should be rehearsed, where ideally the ceiling is first folded over.

How long does it take to remove the fire blanket?2022-05-10T18:55:28+02:00

That depends on the intended use:

A conventional fire suffocates under the ceiling after a few minutes. For safety, the blanket should be left over the object for 20 – 30 minutes. It makes sense to use a thermal imaging camera to ensure that the temperature under the ceiling has dropped below 200°C. Cooling can be accelerated by water.

If an electric car is on fire, the fire blanket can only ensure that the fire does not spread, heat and flames remain under the blanket and smoke development is reduced. You do not extinguish a battery by interrupting the oxygen supply! Here it is essential to make sure that the temperature has dropped. Caution: Battery cells can react and rekindle the fire even after many hours.

If an accident e-car is to be towed, then the fire blanket can secure the transport and storage. If the battery starts to burn, the environment is protected. Our Car Service Set Premium M is best suited for this application. In this set, the e-car can also simply remain safely packed for several days.

How many people are needed to place the fire blanket over a burning object?2022-05-10T18:55:29+02:00

The fire blanket in standard format 6 x 8 m weighs approx. 27 kg. In the VLITEX carrying bag, it can therefore be carried to the site by one person. There, two people are required to spread the blanket and pull it over the burning object. If there is little room to start, then it is helpful if one or two other people hold the end of the blanket, making it easier to spread out a short distance.

What temperatures can the blanket withstand?2024-02-15T09:40:17+01:00

The VLITEX Fire Blanket Premium S withstands 600 °C over a longer period of time and 1,000 °C in peaks.

We have developed the VLITEX Fire Blanket Premium M especially for battery fires. These become particularly hot and can even exceed 1,000 °C for a short time. In numerous tests, we found that the blanket can withstand these temperatures well. 1,000 °C over longer phases and even 1,300 °C in peaks were no problem.

And the fire blanket is even certified as the only one on the market: The independent institute KIWA confirms the suitability of the VLITEX extinguishing blanket Premium M for battery fires.

What material is the fire blanket made of?2022-05-10T18:55:28+02:00

The fire blanket is made of silicone-coated fiberglass fabric.
