Isolating (isothermic) blanket with refractory effect. It protects against cold or heat by reflecting the heat from where it comes, has a wind-cutter effect and may also protect from rain.


space blanket


Technical specifications

  • Polyester film
  • Size: +/- 220 x 140 cm
  • Thickness: 12 à 13 µm
  • 1 silvered side that retains 90 % of the heat radiance (infrared) emitted by the patient and 1 side of another colour (e.g. gold or orange)
  • Flexible, light, surrounding
  • Waterproof
  • Tearproof
  • Rotproof
  • Isothermic

Packaging & Labelling

Each blanket is individually wrapped

Instructions for use

Position the silvered surface according to the desired effect:

  • silvered surface outside: reflects heat radiance => isolates from heat
  • silvered surface inside: retains heat radiance => isolates from humidity, cold and rain (a wounded patient wrapped in the blanket conserves the body heat)

May be cut into smaller pieces for children.

Precautions for Use

Risk of overheating if the patient has fever!

Single patient use. If absolutely needed, can be reused after cleaning and disinfection:

  • Use a detergent/disinfectant for surfaces. Prepare use-solution in concentration required. Always read the label and product information before use. Do not mix with other products. Make sure to wet surfaces completely, use a wipe or towel, keep them wet for the whole exposure time.
  • Failing that, disinfect with 0.1% active chlorine solution.

Do not use

  • during surgical intervention with electro surgical unit
  • when using a defibrillator
  • outside in case of thunderstorm (risk of electrocution)

MSF requirements

Protection of patients with hypothermia (malnourished, with serious burns, in immediate postoperative period, newborn, wounded etc.).

During an emergency, may be used as a clean surface for dressings.
