Buying Guide Questions

How much do you understand how Barricade Fire Blocking Gel works? Find out in the following frequently asked questions about this extinguisher.

[QUESTION](What Do I Need to Do?)

Before you start spraying the fire gel on the house, windows, cars, decks, doors, roofs, etc., you need to have a plan. Proper planning means an active defense mechanism in case of emergencies. First, draft out the places or items you would like to coat against fire hazard; please remember, you don’t have to cover the whole house with gel. Next, prepare the gel by mixing it with water. Finally, coat these places or structures you have drafted adequately. It would be best if you sprayed when a fire is coming.

[QUESTION](How Much Blocking Gel Do I Spray?)

You might need to do a little calculation to determine the amount of gel you have to spray in the preparation process. A coating of about 1/4″ thick is needed, so you need to be careful about how you apply. Usually, a gallon of Barricade Fire Blocking Gel, when mixed with water, can cover between 500 to 700 square feet; thus, to achieve that level of thickness, you need to apply intelligently – there should be places that need to be heavily coated and those with less. Regardless of the thickness of the coating, it lasts between 24 to 36 hours.

[QUESTION](Does it Affect the Paint on a House?)

Sometimes, people are scared that the gel can negatively affect the painting of a house. Sincerely, that is not true. There is no evidence that it destroys the painting; rather, it makes it even better. In a situation where a house has not been painted in years, the gel improves it and cleans the surface.

[QUESTION](Can Barricade Gel Extinguish Magnesium Fires?)

Magnesium Fires seems like one of the worst fires since water and firefighting foam are not effective in stopping them. Fortunately, Barricade Fire Blocking Gel can extinguish them. It works in such a way that it holds water in suspension and cools the affected surface extensively.
