Welding blankets are also known as welding mats and welding drapes. But whatever you call them, their purpose is to protect the user and surrounding environment.
Typically made from a fire retardant material such as fibreglass, they can withstand incredibly hot temperatures. Some have a performance rating of up to 1,000 degrees centigrade. And as you can agree, that’s incredibly hot.
When welding, or performing other hot works, sparks can fly and molten metal can splash. But with one of these covering you, you’ll remain safe. And by hanging over nearby items and covering other possible risks, you can prevent damage and harm, as well as a fire.
They are available in various sizes, which means you should have no problem find the welding blanket suitable for your needs.
What does a welding blanket do?
Welding blankets are an essential piece of safety equipment for any welder. They protect the welder's body, clothing, and tools from heat and sparks and protect the surrounding area from heat and sparks. They are typically made of flame-retardant fibreglass and can withstand high temperatures.
What is the best type of welding blanket?
The best type of welding blanket for you will depend on the welding you will be doing and the environment in which you will be welding. You should consider:
- Welding blankets are available in various sizes and thicknesses for different welding applications. The welding blanket should be large enough to cover the entire weld area. It should also be long enough to reach the ground to prevent sparks from rolling away and starting a fire.
- If you are welding outdoors, you will need a welding blanket that is weather-resistant. Also, welding in a dusty or dirty environment means you will need a welding blanket that is easy to clean.
- The quality of the welding blanket should be inspected regularly for signs of wear and tear. If the blanket is damaged, it should be replaced immediately.
