Leader releases fire blanket for vehicle fires

leadercarfireblanketJuly 6, 2012 – Leader has released an extra large blanket designed to isolate cars in the midst of a vehicle fire. The blanket can be deployed by two people, and helps to prevent the spread of a car fire. The product is especially useful for fires that occur in underground garages, where vehicles are in close proximity to one another.

In addition to preventing the spread of the fire, the Leader Stop blanket prevents the burning vehicle from being completely lost, and reduces the release of toxic gases and opaque fumes. Though not a replacement for the tradition firefighting methods, the Leader Stop blanket helps to facilitate the intervention of firefighters.
