Welding & Soldering Area Protection
Welding and soldering activities create sparks, spatter, and ultraviolet light that can damage surrounding equipment or pose a risk to others. Welding blankets drape over surfaces, such as tables and vehicles, to protect them from sparks, spatter, and slag. Welding curtains have grommets to hang it around larger items or to block off areas. Welding screens stand freely and can be moved around a site to block off a work area and welding booths have four sides to enclose a work area. Heat pads protect the work surface from heat produced during welding. Tents and umbrellas provide cover when working outdoors. Pipeline cooling wraps drape over pipeline welds to allow the weld to cool slowly and prevent cracking. Soldering flame barriers protect nearby surfaces from heat and flame.
