Industrial Emergency Fiberglass Welding Blanket Heavy Duty Harmless
FIRE SAFETY EQUIPMENT
Fire blankets are made of many materials. Two of the most common are made from fiber glass like polyester fabric with coating which can be woven into a supple or pliable type of material to allow the blanket to conform to many differing shapes, sizes. Some are 100% fiberglass.
So the fire blanket made of 100% fiberglass have the advantages:
1) Quick and easy to apply
2) Light weight
3) Easy to maintain
4) Cheaper than extinguishers
However,everything has two sides,the fire blanket also has his disadvantages:
In order to use on a fire, you have to move close to the fire where your hands will be particularly vulnerable
1) They can only be used on a very small and contained fire
2) You probably only get one go at extinguishing the fire . If you fail to put out the fire then you will not be able to retrieve the blanket
All blankets are subject to burn through from molten slag/metal. Direct contact with extreme temperature and flame may result in smoking or fire. This product is intended to provide partial protection during light duty welding and grinding jobs.
