Firesleeve

AS1072 is an 'Aerospace Standard'. AS1072 firesleeve was designed originally to both protect fuel/oil lines in aircraft from heat and flame, and to prevent pressurised flammable leakage from them - which represents probably the highest hazard to in-flight safety.

You sure can! If you require only a few metres, ensure you select the ‘per metre’ product option, before you enter into the dropdown which size and quantity you are after. A small custom-cut-to-size fee is included in the ‘per metre’ Aerospace Firesleeve product option.

With a sharp knife or industrial scissors.

We will help you size it correctly, then we recommend sealing the ends with End Seal Tape to prevent ingress of moisture/dirt etc.

Yes, we keep a silver colour in some sizes, but the burnt ochre colour is specified by AS1072.

 

Fire Blanket

Both are correct - 'Burnover' is a term specific to the Firefighting industry, where the crew have to shelter in their tanker, using the protection of their blankets.

Our fire blankets are designed as a last resort level of protection for persons trapped by fire. They are carried by persons living, travelling, serving or employed in fire prone areas, either for their own protection or those in their care.

A burnover blanket could work quite well to extinguish a cooktop fire, but never the other way around. One smothers (cuts off oxygen supply to) an oil fed fire, the other provides protection to a human from radiant heat and flame immersion. Our burnover blankets are large enough for a person to completely wrap themselves in, cooktop blankets aren't.

Thermaguard offers packaging and protection solutions for all variants of vehicle and static environments.

Thermaguard's fire blankets are coloured according to the specification to which they are designed, or according to the blend of high performance fibres employed in their construction.

No.

Thermaguard offers a inspection/repacking service for any blankets which may have been exposed to contaminants or environmental factors which may reduce their effectiveness in protection.

 

Radiant Heat Shield

Yes, both in real burnovers, full scale replicated and instrumented burnover testing by CSIRO, and to many Australian and International standards.

Most fire authority fleets in Australia, Defence, State Environment Departments, forestry companies, contractors etc.

We manufacture them to fit most vehicles - loaders, dozers, skidsteers, trucks, excavators, utilities, graders, ATVs, as well as bush huts and hikers' lodges.
