Fact 1: Fire blankets are the best option for Class F type fires
Because there are six classes of fires based on the fuel that it burns, there are also several options for putting out each type. It is vital for your safety and to effectively stop the fire that you use the right kind of equipment.
Class F fires burn flammable liquids, specifically cooking oils and fats such as those found in deep fryers. For this reason, water is not the right choice for killing the fire as the stream of water could spread the flames rather than stop it. Fire extinguishers with certain chemicals are also not the best choice as these chemicals can contaminate kitchen areas with substances not safe for human consumption.
Fire blankets, on the other hand, are made of fire-resistant fibres designed to starve the fire of oxygen.
