Passive Fire Protection Blanket

Used for Valve Actuators - UL1709 Tested

Shannon Rapid Rise Blankets are designed for “Fire Safety”. Consider the value of a quality blanket system when protecting your equipment from extreme temperature. Shannon Rapid Rise Blankets are the solution. A properly designed fire safety blanket can make all the difference. We stand by our high quality designs which meet and exceed industry standards for fire safety.

Shannon Rapid Rise Blankets meet and exceed The UL1709 Rapid Rise Fire Test Method, designed to protect surface conditions from extreme temperature. Shannon Rapid Rise Blanket Design: HT2000MSiTSiM withstands the severe rapid rise condition, of 2000 F rising within 5 minutes and maintaining this extreme temperature until failure. The UL 1709 Test Method demands a minimum duration of exposure of the equipment surface temperature, not to exceed 1000 F. Shannon Rapid Rise Blankets withstand the minimum requirement of 30 minutes and under the current testing, the Shannon duration lasted over 3 hours before failure.

The UL1709 test procedure has been the benchmark standard for many applications including: Structural Columns, Valve Actuators, Cable Trays, Instrumentation, Valve Bodies and much more.

Shannon Rapid Rise Blankets are custom fit to match equipment surface geometry. The blanket enclosure is flexible with easy installation and removal capabilities. Drawcord flaps allow accommodations for Cable Entries, Handwheels, Clutch Mechanisms and Inspection.

Shannon Rapid Rise Blankets are designed to match field conditions with a durable outer jacketing, capable of withstanding severe weather and chemical environments. Wiretwist fasteners are the chosen closure method for installation, removal and reinstallation. INSULTECH® Rapid Rise Blankets are pulled from a box, placed onto a fixture and tied in place by closing matchup seams. The blanket can be installed within minutes with a pair of leather gloves.
