Rescue sheets reflect up to 85 % of the body heat. This way hypothermia and loss of body temperature can be prevented. They can also be used to protect against heat.
Other metallised rescue sheets are available, in addition to the SIRIUS® rescue sheet, which is mandatory in workplace first aid cases according to DIN 13157 and DIN 13169, as well as for vehicle first aid cases according to DIN 13164.
Survival blankets for children have the same features as adult survival blankets, they are just smaller - a suitable size for children.
