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.
