NPO had workers’ safety and ergonomics in mind when designing our new standard lead blanket. The new NPO standard lead blanket features handles for quicker and easier handling, printing to declare the weight of each blanket – assuring workers will know how much they are about to lift, along with larger 25mm grommets for simple, speedier installation on racks or scaffolding. This design is one of a kind and will be applied to every NPO manufactured blanket 60 lb or under.
NPO’s lead blankets are flexible and are manufactured in a multitude of sizes, shapes and weights for effective shielding around components. Project specific shielding such as dry cask or steam generator sludge lancing blankets available upon request.
Available in various sizes, shapes and weights, NPO’s alpha maritex coverings can withstand continuous temperatures of 550+ degrees Fahrenheit (288 degrees Celsius). The blankets are typically used in high temperature applications and have been used as permanent shielding in some facilities.
