Salisbury by Honeywell

BOLINGBROOK, ILL., April 13, 2010, Salisbury by Honeywell’s Arc Protection Blankets are now available in 4’ x 5’ and 4’ x 8’ sizes. Each size is available in 15kA, 25kA, or 40kA ratings. The 15kA blankets include convenient loops and the 25kA and 40kA blankets include grommets to easily keep the blanket in place. These new blankets are sold individually or with a storage bag and tie-strap kit.

The Arc Suppression Blanket is used as a barrier for protection from the explosive and incendiary effects of electrical arcs and flashes. These hazardous electrical discharges can be caused by faults in cables, in cable splices and joints and at transformer terminals or they may be generated by the operation of switch gear, circuit breakers and lightning arrestors. The blanket can be used for worker protection in underground vaults, switchyards, and other locations where electrical equipment poses a risk of exposure to explosive electrical discharges.

These products do not eliminate or reduce requirements for proper PPE for arc flash protection.
