Welding Curtains and Blankets
A welding blanket is a piece of safety equipment designed to protect equipment and the welder while welding. Many modern welding blankets are made of flame retardant fiberglass and can stand working temperatures ranging from 300 to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit.
The purpose of a welding curtain or screen is to protect passers by and nearby workers who aren't actually involved in the process from the welding arc light and levels of UV. Where welding takes place and other people are likely to be close-by, there should be something in place to prevent them being affected by the light. This protection is usually achieved by using curtains or screens to ensure that work can go on as effectively as possible without disrupting others on site or in the workshop.
