Welding screens are generally used to shield chipping, cutting, grinding and welding applications from the unprotected eye and to contain sparks and flames from spreading beyond the work area. Some of these screens such as our CanvasShield 1200 FR, and our ThoroShield 1300 FR are opaque reinforced fire retardant fabrics that offer 100% visual protection and particle containment from grinding and blasing operations. Our WeldView line of welding screens comes in 6 different transparent colors for varying degrees of UV protection. The green and gray WeldView screens offer the most protection, the orange and yellow offer moderate protection, and the blue offers little UV ray protection.

Metal and welding shop applications such as chipping, grinding, heat treating, sand blasting, welding, cutting, and painting often require enclosures for safety. Welding curtains are designed to be used only in a vertical/curtain configuration. They are not intended to be used horizontally as a blanket. They do not have the Fahrenheit rating, strength, or fireproof rating necessary to catch slag or other molten materials. THOR welding screens are sold as A) a complete kit with the 18 gauge tubular metal frame included or B) as replacement curtains designed to fit virtually any standard frame regardless of manufacturer.

Alternate fabrics are available in addition to those shown here on our website up to and including 36 oz/sy silica and Kevlar reinforced blankets. We also specialize in manufacturing custom screens designed to fit your specific needs. These screens may be customized with D-rings, Velcro, Zippers, multiple layers, and fabricated into flat or dimensional covers. You will need to contact us with theses specific needs by phone, fax, or e-mail.

THOR welding screens may also be ordered with our Velcro Tab system to easily join screens together to form two sided, three sides, and completely enclosed four sided configurations.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have a requirement to put fire blankets around some semi-tires in our application. Our question is around how well does the material stand up to extended exposure to sunlight, water and freeze thaw cycles etc. Is it better to get a coated blanket for the environmental concern? Also after some fire exposure testing we may be requesting custom fit blankets for the longer application. Is that something you can do?

I would go with a coated fabric. An uncoated fiberglass or silica product could wick moisture and cause early breakdown of the fibers. Sunlight is no factor. As long as you are not talking cryogenic like temperatures, the cold should not have an effect on the blankets once they return to a reasonable temperature. They will get brittle at very low temperatures, below 32 degrees F, but would retain their resistance to slag, sparks, etc.

What type of thread do you use on your welding screens?  What is the thread's thickness?

Type E-18, Teflon coated fiberglass, thread size #12 equivalent .017 diameter.
