CUSTOM-MADE FLAME RETARDANT WELDING BLANKET
CUSTOM-MADE WELDING BLANKETS FOR WELDING, CUTTING, AND GRINDING.
Texfire offers customers the chance to tailor custom-made protection blankets for welding, cutting and grinding operations, according to the client’s need and with different flame retardant fabrics in relation to the kind of welding that is going to be performed. Texfire’s custom-made welding blankets are tailored with Nomex® flame retardant thread. The perimeter is reinforced with a bias and also Texfire offers the opportunity to incorporate metallic grommets on each 50 cm to ease its holding.
The maximum measurements that can be acquired are 7,5x10 meters. For higher sizes, we recommend our clients contact Texfire’s team via phone or email.
Fabrics we can use to tailor the blankets are Texfire’s exclusive and confer different features to each blanket:
Weld S1 blanket: Tailored in WELS1 flame retardant fabric, it is a fibreglass blanket with a side covered with a special silicone for high temperatures that avoids incandescent particles to get stuck in the blanket, increasing its lifespan. This welding blanket is light, flexible and waterproof, and it resists temperatures of 250ºC in continuous works and work peaks up to 550ºC. It is recommended to use it vertically or diagonally.
Weld S2 blanket: Tailored in WELS2 flame retardant thread, it brings maximum safety and protection in front of sparks and projections that may be stuck, meaning that it can be used on both sides. It resists continuous working temperatures of 300ºC and peak temperatures up to 900ºC. In addition, this blanket is completely waterproof to liquids and fumes. It is recommended to use it vertically or diagonally.
Weld SX blanket: Tailored in WELD SX fabric, it is the only welding blanket that achieves containing incandescent sparks, at the same time it performs as a thermal barrier. It brings protection in front of practically all kinds of welding techniques: MIG, Electrode, TIG, spot welding, etc. It is also useful for cutting operations: Radial cutting, oxyfuel, plasma cutting and grinding… WELD SX welding blanket has a silicone finish on one side and a Preox fabric on the other that performs as a thermal barrier, avoiding heat transference at its most. It resists continuous working temperatures of 500ºC and thermal peaks up to 1300ºC. It is the only blanket in the marketplace performing as a thermal insulator, same time as containing incandescent projections.
These fabrics meet the following regulations:
WELS1 fabric is certified with regulation UNE 23727 - Reaction to fire of building materials - achieving an M1 classification. WELS1 blanket has also been tested in internal laboratories according to regulation EN ISO 9150 - Behaviour of materials regarding the impact of small melted metal splashes – reaching a Class 1 classification.
WELS2 fabric is certified with regulation UNE 23727 - Reaction to fire of building materials - getting an M1 classification. And according to regulation UNE 13773 - Behaviour in front of fire of curtains and drapery -, with a Class 1 result. It also meets regulation EN ISO 9150 - Behaviour of materials regarding the impact of small melted metal splashes – with a Class 1 classification.
WELD SX fabric meets the following European ISO regulations: EN ISO 9185 - Resistance of textile materials to melted metal splashes, achieving the maximum classification in front of melted iron splashes at 1200ªC Value (E3) and in front of splashes of melted aluminium at 800ºC (D3). EN ISO 11611 - Protection fabrics for welding and related techniques, obtaining the maximum classification in the test EN ISO 9150 - (CLASS 2). Also, WELD SX fabric has been certified recently (in the year 2020) with the Spanish regulation UNE 23727 - Reaction to fire of building materials - with an M2 classification.
