Rapid Rise Fire Blankets for Fire Safety Protection
Designed for Fire Safety.
Protect your equipment from extreme temperature with Rapid Rise Fire Blankets. Our high quality designs meet and exceed industry standards for fire safety.
Meet and exceed the UL1709 Rapid Rise Fire Test Method.
Rapid Rise Fire Blanket Design FB2000MSSiSSiM and FB2000SSiSSi withstand a temperature of 2000°F rising within 5 minutes and maintain its integrity at this temperature until failure. The UL1709 Test Method demands a minimum duration of exposure of the equipment surface temperature, not to exceed 1000°F. Rapid Rise Fire Blankets withstand the minimum requirement of 30 minutes; and under the current testing, last over 3 hours before failure. The UL1709 test procedure has been the benchmark standard for many applications including: structural columns, valve actuators, cable trays, instrumentation, valve bodies and more.
Match equipment surface geometry.
The blanket enclosure is flexible and easy to install and remove. Drawcord flaps accommodate cable entries, handwheels, clutch mechanisms and inspection.
Designed to match conditions with a durable outer jacketing, withstanding severe weather and chemical environments. A stainless steel wiretwist, metal spring tensioner, or metal D-ring strap with Velcro® tab are available as closure methods for installation, removal and reinstallation.
Pulled from a box, placed on a fixture and tied in place by closing matchup seams. The blanket can be installed within minutes with a pair of leather gloves.
