Certification for welding blankets
A European standard is not yet in place for the safe screening off of workplaces that are capable of being easily ignited, such as the EN-1598 for filtration of welding light. In various directives, both governmentally and commercially, directions are given to prevent fire and damage.
General directives are:
- Removal of all portable flammable items to a distance of 10 metres from the activities.
- Removing dust in the vicinity of the activities.
- Covering the immediate vicinity and all flammable and / or valuable items left behind.
For the last mentioned, CEPRO provides an extensive package of flexible welding blankets.
Since a specific standard lacks, CEPRO tests the welding blankets according to standards for non-flammability of building materials.
Some examples of these standards:
French standard for non-flammability of flexible building blocks thinner than 5 mm.
EN ISO 1716
European standard for caloric value of building blocks.
European standard for non-flammability of building blocks.
All CEPRO welding blankets comply with the most stringent requirements for each quality. We hereby guarantee our clients a high-quality product, which will ensure a safe workplace, at all times.
For the best possible guarantee against liability, one must select products that are tested and approved according to the above mentioned standards.
The choice of welding blanket to be used depends on the type of risk, the user frequency, the mechanical load, the proximity of the spark source and various environmental factors. In most cases, for the best possible protection, it is necessary to use a customised solution. CEPRO offers you a wide selection for this purpose.
