Cooking Fire Suppression Cover
Instructions for Use
Read these instructions, understand them and familiarize all the members of your household with its use.
Remove cover from box.
Open and hold the cover in front of you. Hold by the top two corners. Approach the fire with the cover in front of you.
Carefully and quickly place the cover completely over the fire. Use either side. The cover will not burn. Turn off the stove or pull the plug on the appliance, shutting off the energy source.
Do not remove the cover for 30 minutes.
Allow everything to cool down.
DO NOT USE THE CABINET DOORS OVER THE STOVE.
Find a convenient cabinet door to attach the box with the two double faced tapes included.
Cooking fires are the largest single cause of home fires and home fire injuries in the U.S., with more than 400 fatalities and 5,000 reported injuries associated with kitchen fires annually. Costs of kitchen fires during the period from 2004 through 2009 were roughly one billion dollars annually. The Cooking Fire Suppression Cover from Bradford Industries was developed in response to these dramatic statistics, as a means to quickly suppress cooking fires.
The Cooking Fire Suppression Cover is a blanket made from woven fiberglass fabric coated with a proprietary fire-resistant silicone coating. The material combination provides a lightweight, water and oil-resistant blanket that can be used to cover a cooking fire and suppress the fire by smothering it. The blanket is large enough to cover a large pot or pan and flexible enough to drape over a wide variety of cooking vessel shapes. This blanket smothers the fire quickly, allowing the cook to turn off the burner and call 911 for professional help.

ABOUT BRADFORD INDUSTRIES
Delivering Endless Possibilities in Advanced Materials
Since our founding in 1967, Bradford Industries has undergone a major transformation to emerge as America’s leading supplier of polymer coated textiles. As the dominant manufacturer of synthetic leathers for the shoe, leather goods and home furnishings markets, Bradford rode the crest of America’s heyday in those industries throughout the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.
In the mid-1980s, stiff competition from foreign markets caused the evaporation of domestic business. With 95% of Bradford’s sales in the shoe and leather goods markets, it was time to redirect our focus to the broader industrial marketplace. As a result, we not only reinvented our marketing and sales programs, but we also successfully made the transition from providing low-tech coated materials for fashion to delivering some of the most advanced materials known to the industrial marketplace.
Today, Bradford Industries is recognized for its unprecedented growth and innovative talent in industrial polymer coated textiles. We quickly became the automotive industry’s driving force in the manufacture of advanced silicone coated automotive airbag materials, commencing a new era of safety that has become the standard of this essential industry.
The extent of our expertise in the development of airbag materials resonated throughout the world when Bradford’s advanced silicone coated fabric was deemed by NASA to be the most reliable means of cushioning the shock of the Pathfinder’s 60 MPH landing on the rocky surface of Mars. As a result, our product became the first man-made material to ever touch the surface of Mars on July 4, 1997.
