Not much to explain: unfold the blanket, lift it over the vehicle by long handles and lay it down evenly aligned. Some thoughtful gimmicks, such as centered markings on all sides, help with this. As unspectacular the application, as spectacular the effect: Immediately after lowering the ceiling, the smoke development is reduced and the heat remains virtually under the ceiling. Anything that burns conventionally is extinguished within a short time without the necessary oxygen supply. The battery burns down in a controlled manner.
“We are convinced of the future viability of our product,” says managing director Friedhelm Schwender. “Every fire contaminates extinguishing water, which usually seeps into the ground untreated – a battery fire in particular. But conventional vehicle fires with their vast quantities of different plastics are also real pollutant havens. The fact that we can do without water when extinguishing fires is well received by fire departments. After all, environmental thinking has long since arrived in fire protection as well.” What is not needed cannot be contaminated – that makes sense.
The extinguishing attempt is successful. As a precaution, the blanket remains on the vehicle for a while and could thus also secure the removal. And depending on the fire load, it can be used multiple times.
