These foil blankets help to retain body heat in survival, emergency and first aid situations. They are stocked in the case of evacuation at sports centres, hotels, schools and many other sites.
Also known as survival blankets, first aid blankets or space blankets, they are commonly used by first aiders in the treatment of shock and hypothermia. The disposable heat-reflecting blankets are individually sealed in pocket sized poly bags. They are effective even in wet conditions and may be used in conjunction with traditional fabric blankets. The emergency foil blankets are made from Kelvalite, an ultra-insulating material constructed from polyester film with a vapourised metallic coating on both sides, it reflects radiated heat back to the user.
