Arc Suppression Blankets

What Is an arc Suppression Blanket?

It is a protective device designed and built to abate the dangers of an Arc blast or explosion.

What is an Arc Blast?

It is a dangerous event that develops from an Arc flash. This event can be initiated when a small quantity of air is mixed with the released energy from an electrical fault. The air becomes super-heated and forms a pressure bolt more than thousands of pounds. The release of this pressure results in an explosion/blast. When an arc flash occurs, it could be in different forms. The one I will discuss here is plasma arc, which is most common. Plasma arc is a combination of super - heated ionized air and the vaporization of material in its path. An, example of such could be metal from the conductor.

We developed our arc Suppression blankets to offer additional protection and improve workers survivability in life threatening situations. Our arc blast blankets can be used in confined areas, such as underground network or near adjacent energized cables that cannot be taken out of service. The technology used in the manufacturing of our Electrical Arc Suppression blankets has given us the very best in Arc Blast Blankets at very competitive price.

Our Arc Flash Suppression Blankets are manufacture from fiberglass product with a proprietary silicone mixed coating that enhance the flame-resistant properties of fiberglass. This is unique to the industry. The manufacturing of our blankets with fiberglass, not only add uniqueness to this process but it has developed a product far superior to other products that is commonly used.

We offer two levels of protection- 15KA and 40KA along with two standard sizes 4'x5' and 4'x8' for each level of protection. Your special size can be custom. The 15 KA unit is a single layered product with grommets with BTP rating of 213 and the 40KA unit is a double layered product with grummets with a BTP rating 509. You may use either side of our blanket toward the arc unlike most others. We do have available Kevlar straps or ropes with buckle to aide in the mounting of the blankets.

Our blankets do not emit any toxic gas, does not absorb water, solvent or oil. Our blankets are resistant to UV rays, thus outdoor use is not a problem. The blankets can be easily clean by manually wash with soap and water. Do NOT MACHINE WASH THE BLANKETS. For storage roll the blankets, DO NOT FOLD OR CREASE.
