Electrical discharges are unpredictable and as such using an Arc Suppression Blanket helps you to come through an arc flash accident with better results than had you not used it.
- Arc Suppression Blanket
- AC Max. Use Voltage 15kA or 25kA or 40kA
- Color Navy Blue or Yellow
- Standards ASTM F2676
- Includes Straps
- Used as a barrier for protection from the explosive and incendiary effects of electrical arc flashes
- Provides and additional layer of protective insulation to direct energy, not arc flash protection
- Ideal for use in underground vaults, switchyards and anywhere there is a potential of exposure to explosive electrical discharges
CAUTION: Because of the unpredictability of electrical discharges, the Arc Suppression Blanket may not totally contain arcs and flashes, but only reduce or limit exposure and incendiary effects. In such cases, injuries may still occur, even when the blanket is properly used.

Determine the Correct Protection Level, To evaluate Fire Retardant clothing materials in order to measure the heat transferred through the fabric, two values are calculated: Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV)...the minimum energy causing the predicted onset of second-degree burns and Heat Attenuation Factor (HAF)...the percentage of total energy of the arc that the fabric prevents from passing through, OSHA requires that each employer must assess the potential hazards in the work environment and determine the appropriate clothing materials using ASTM PS57-97. Always do a hazard assessment. You will need to know electrical system voltage, fault current available, number of phases, Arc time duration, estimated Arc gap, minimum distance from the Arc, and Arc configuration.
