THERMAGUARD’S® SUPERTHERM™ EXTRICATION BLANKET utilises the latest technologies to offer a high performance, multi-purpose product to assist Emergency Services in the safe extrication of accident victims.
The patented, unique construction is tear resistant, flame resistant and puncture-resistant; perfect for the protection of victims in motor vehicle accidents where heat and sharp debris can be potentially fatal. Lightweight and yet tough, this emergency rescue blanket offers very good thermal protection, and will not catch fire or support combustion – it has been independently tested to exceed the AS4824:2006 Wildland Firefighters’ Clothing Standard by up to 200%.
The Kevlar thread hem won’t melt, drip or ignite up to approx. 500C, and the blanket offers the added benefit of a unique construction which resists splinters and shards from becoming embedded in the surface, yet is soft enough to be used under straps on a stretch to restrain an agitated patient.
The superior engineering of this personal protection blanket has resulted in a product which is far safer, easier to use, and more effective than the outdated woollen-type blankets of old. The rescue blanket includes eyelets for fixing via rope or bungy straps, is machine-washable, and is supplied in a bright colour to assist with recognition in low-light situations. The unique qualities of this emergency blanket enable it to replace multiple other items of equipment, from woollen blankets to flexible PVC and rigid plastic boards used for patient protection.
What existing equipment could this replace?
At Thermaguard®, we understand that in today’s complex emergency response vehicles, space and mass are becoming ever more critical. Thermaguard’s Extrication Blanket can be used to replace multiple pieces of equipment with one multi-purpose solution. Such items include:
- Heavy, bulky, flexible PVC sheets used to protect personnel from jagged metal/glass when accessing a casualty
- Heavy, tear-prone woollen blankets as used by some agencies for the same use
- Awkward, rigid plastic boards used to protect patients when cutting vehicle pillars
Size and Packaging:
Measuring approx. 1450mm x 1900mm, Thermaguard’s® Extrication Blanket weighs in at only 1.2kg.
Clear Carry Bag - with Heavy Duty Handles, Hi-Vis identification, Heavy Duty Zip open, Name and ID panel. The Extrication Blanket is supplied in this Clear Carry Bag to provide protection from contamination and is customised with your name or organisation's logo, similar to the 'base-model' packaging of the Supertherm® Lite blanket.
