Fire Proof Blankets
WeldShield welding blankets carry three ratings in degrees Fahrenheit for constant, intermittent and melt. These values will range from 1000 degrees constant to 1800 degree melt. The “constant” rating is intended to define the maximum temperature an object may be at and be in direct contact with the blanket. The “intermittent” rating (also referred to as excursion temp) is what the fabric can take for short exposures without damaging the cloth. The “melting” temp is the point where the fabric is physically damaged due to prolonged exposure to excessive heat. Order Now
WeldShield welding blankets are fabricated with high-temp thread and brass grommets every 2'; they are then individually poly bagged for ease in shipping, storage and handling. All stock sized blankets will run smaller in their finished dimensions by several inches due to the fabric lost in the hemming and seaming operations. Finished sized blankets may be ordered at an upcharge if final dimensions are critical.

These fire proof blankets can also serve as a safety device designed to extinguish incipient (starting) fires. Small fire blankets, such as for use in kitchens, dorm rooms, and around the home, can be placed over a fire in order to smother it. Fire proof blankets, along with fire extinguishers, are fire safety items that can be useful in case of a fire.

Frequently Asked Questions
We have a requirement to put fire blankets around some semi-tires in our application. Our question is around how well does the material stand up to extended exposure to sunlight, water and freeze thaw cycles etc. Is it better to get a coated blanket for the environmental concern? Also after some fire exposure testing we may be requesting custom fit blankets for the longer application. Is that something you can do?
