How to protect your house from fire

by Chris Lang on February 1, 2010

House on fire We remember the Black Saturday fires too well. They were a tragedy for so many reasons – people were unaware of the danger, unaware of how quickly they had to react or what to do. I can’t even imagine what it feels like to leave your home, drop everything and run for your life, wondering what will be left to come back to. And I can understand completely the ones who stayed to protect their homes, to try and save something they were building for so long.

This summer, according to the weather people, can be even worse than the last one and if you are worried about the fire situation in your area, you’d be relieved to know that there is a way to protect your home from fire. It’s easy, quick and works like a charm. Before you read any further, just know that this is not a paid review (which I never do anyway) – this is a product I found out about and wanted to share what I learned.

Thermo-Gel is an innovative product, created to save lives and property from fires. It is a concentrate, which mixes with water to create a fire-preventing and heat-absorbing gel. This gel is spayed on the walls of the house, the glass windows, any types of surfaces and that way a barrier is created to protect the house from fire. It can even be sprayed on plants, trees, shrubs and other kinds of vegetation and works very effectively to save them from fire. It is not affected by low humidity and works much better than foam that uses an encapsulated air. It is very water efficient, non-toxic and minimizes the time it takes to contain the fire.

As a matter of fact there was a ‘cool’ test performed to show exactly how effective Thermo-Gel is. They burnt down a house 🙂 No, I’m not kidding. One half of the house was treated with fire-protective foam and the other half – with Thermo-Gel. Then they burned fuel for 10 minutes and used a fan to simulate wind. After 10 minutes the foam side was a total wreck and Thermo-Gel side … remained just the way it was before the fire, untouched. Unbelievably, even the window pane didn’t crack from the heat.

Not only houses and vegetation can be protected – but also power poles, pumps, supply lines, fuel tanks, etc. When you no longer need it, either wash it off with a strong jet of water pressure or just leave it on – it’s biodegradable. There’s no need in any training to apply it, just use the nozzle in the home kit to spray it over the surfaces you want to protect.

Have a look how simple it is (they have a video on YouTube)

And if this product has helped you save your property, I’d love to hear what you think – so that together we’d help more people do the same.

A lot of people must be made aware of the measures to be observed so as to prevent the occurence of fire.

This is amazing. Thanks for giving reviews on this. Early prevention also is to dispose thing that might cause fire and hopefully you are using biodegradable materials in your house because as we all know non-biodegradable materials affect the environment.
