What’s the difference between a Welding Blanket and a Fire Blanket?
A welding blanket protects the welder and the surrounding areas during the welding process. There are different classes of welding blankets because welding techniques are different.
Welding blankets can be made with various materials such as silicate, aluminum paper, polyurethane, graphite, clay, and other coverings that are preferred depending on technical features. Some welding blankets can be used for horizontal or vertical applications, one-sided or both, to give protection for high or low-intensity welding jobs or for cutting techniques. Some blankets can also have a higher capacity such as a thermal or electric insulator.
A fire blanket is a safety device that is used to extinguish starting (incipient) fires. It is made of a sheet of fire retardant material that is placed over a fire to smother it. Most fire blankets in the kitchens and in the home are made of glass fiber and kevlar. These are folded into a quick-release contraption for easy storage. Fire blankets are great for emergency situations. This is because they’re designed with quick-release capabilities.
