Insulating Blankets

Eyelet Style

Eyelet Style Insulating Blankets were designed to be easily secured in place by using blanket pins, Snap Buttons or Ty-Straps (available on page B-9) Eyelet blankets are flexible and feature a reinforced beaded edge and eyelets for added strength and tear-resistance.

Slotted Style

Slotted Style Insulating Blankets are made of Type II SALCOR® rubber and designed for increased versatility and flexibility in special cover-up situations. Use for covering ridge pins, cross arms with insulators or any place a wire, pin or projection interferes with proper placement of other cover-up devices.

Without Eyelets

Salisbury Insulating Blankets without Eyelets are available in Class 2 and Class 4 in two types of material: Type I natural rubber, and Type II SALCOR, which is a highly flexible, corona-resistant polymer with excellent aging and weathering qualities. Salisbury insulating blankets feature a reinforced beaded edge for added strength and tear-resistance.

Low Voltage - Zip On Style

Low Voltage Insulating Blankets are made of Type II SALCOR® rubber. Insulating blankets are available with or without hook and pile (Zip) (Shown Here) or Plain style.

Roll Blankets

Salisbury has gone to great lengths to protect workers from low voltage electrical hazards, by now offering insulating roll blankets. Salisbury’s insulating Roll Blankets are made from a high strength fabric reinforced Type II rubber in unique colors making it easy to identify and highly visible in the work area. All classes of Roll Blankets are easy to cut, and flexible to -40°F/C. Highly puncture and tear resistant, each class of blanket is also flame (self-extinguishing), oil, and ozone resistant.

Insulating Aprons

The Insulating Apron includes two Nomex(R) webbed bib straps and two Nomex waist straps with nonmetallic buckles. All the straps are attached with reinforced stitching and Nomex thread. The insulating apron has straps that can be buckled around the back and around the neck which gives wearers a comfortable and supportive fit. The straps are adjustable so that one size will fit most wearers. The apron measures 42” from the top of the bib and has a full width of 30” to wrap around the front of most workers. Use these aprons where there is a possibility of accidental contact with energized equipment or lines.

Clamp Pins

In addition to other uses in the utility industry, Blanket Clamp Pins can be effectively used to hold insulating blankets and rubber cover-up in place. Springs are used for tension while extra holes in the body of the pin are used to grip conductors and prevent line hose from sliding.

Switchboard Matting

Switchboard Matting is permanently placed in front of switchgear, motor control centers and other high voltage apparatus to provide personal protection for workers. It is also used when tending take-up and pay out reels and when adding or replacing conductors.

Arc Suppression Blanket

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.
