Fires can be accidentally started by welding sparks, this can sometimes happen when a welding, grinding or gas cutting operation has finished and premises left unattended. Avoid this serious safety hazard by using welding blankets and welding curtains.
The welding curtains and blankets can protect workers and have the added benefit of shielding flammable materials. There are various materials available for producing welding blankets each with their own individual benefits. Welding curtains made from reinforced P.V.C. can be used to isolate an area. This can offer protection to workers from grinding sparks and light welding spatter. This material is certified to BS EN 1598 (Health and Safety in Welding and Allied Processes) Neoprene coated glass fibre fabric welding curtains can also be used to isolate an area.
