Protect Your Workers with Welding Equipment

If your business does any type of welding, you know how important it is to protect your workers from the dangers of the job. Not only does welding involve high heat, but it also involves bright lights from sparks as well as molten metal.

For that reason, it’s important to implement proper protections so that employees don’t get injured. At Steel Guard Safety, we understand the variety of obstacles that welding projects can present and for that reason, we offer a diverse inventory of products that protect your staff.

Welding Blankets

Welding blankets are typically used to protect the rest of a product when your workers are welding one part of a product.

For instance, if they are welding on the front end of a product, the blanket will be draped over the back of the product so that the heat, sparks and potential debris cannot damage the rest of the piece they are working on.

Our fire-safe welding blankets are made of a combination of fiberglass, silica yarn and carbonized felt for optimal protection against grinding, sparks and metal splatter, arc gouging, welding slag, and more.

We currently offer seven different types of welding blankets, and depending on your needs, one of these may be a better option than the rest.

Welding Curtains

Welding curtains are designed to protect larger areas from the workspace wherein welding jobs take place. For example, if your facility has several welding projects that need finished, welding curtains can be installed between each project to prevent workers from interfering with one another on accident.

They are an ideal barrier against harmful welding arc, sparks and flash burn, and can be used to create enclosures so that only the worker who is tending to a welding project is in contact with the project—other employees are safe from sparks, debris and splatter.

These curtains are made from polyester-reinforced vinyl laminate and are designed to protect your employees.

Welding Screens

Welding screens act as a more portable version of welding curtains. They are designed to help employees stay safe from welding sparks, arc, flash, fumes, dust and debris. They are ideal for setting up protections near areas that are not always used for welding projects, but where temporary protection is essential.

These screens are OSHA safe and are flame resistant, and are customizable both in configuration as well as material used to manufacture them.

PVC Welding Strip Curtains

If simply blocking off certain workspaces from the general area of your facility is more in line with what you need, consider PVC weld strip curtains. These are designed to resist “curling” over time and are highly flexible both with installation as well as moving out of the way.

They are designed to provide exceptional protection from weld flash while still allowing the welding area to be visible.
