Fire Curtain cover guard® was designed for use in the marine, offshore and petrochemical industries as well as other heavy welding plants. It features a fibreglass base fabric and our specially formulated silicone rubber compound. This heavy duty fabric has been used to surround awnings and scaffolding and provides greater life, water and oil repellency than uncoated fabrics.
Approvals and Testing
When tested to British Standard 476 Part 7, Fire Curtain obtained the highest classification possible of Class 1 for the surface spread of flame. It is also the first welding blanket to meet the FM Global approval standard 4950 for welding blankets.
