Electric Blanket Safety Testing

The after effects of an electric blanket fire.

Every year around April or May in New Zealand, people bring their electric blankets out of storage and make their beds with them to keep cozy.

While they are convenient and inviting, Electric blankets unfortunately are known for causing fires or electrical shock.

The main dangers with electrical blankets occur if they have been put away in a messy or folded manner, or if they are too old.

Anything over 3-4 years old can have a higher chance of failure.

Kadec Test and Tag recommend an electrical test and Thermal imaging at the beginning of every year to help ensure your family is safe and warm.

The process is quick and inexpensive.
