Arc Flash Supression Blankets - Oberon
Redbank are offering the Oberon Arc Flash Suppression Blankets for arc flash redirection and containment.They are designed for electrical work in underground and confined spaces.
The Arc Flash Blankets are hung between a potential arc source and the worker or equipment to be protected. To prevent the force of the arc going downward (toward the floor and redirected to the individual), the lower portion of the blanket can be formed in a J under the arc source and toward the wall so the arc will be deflected upward. Never wrap a blanket around a splice. The explosive force of the air expanding and metal vaporizing cannot be contained even by the Kevlar. The force must have somewhere to go, thus the blanket's purpose is to redirect the force.
The Arc Blankets come in 2 sizes and 3 ratings.
