For the past several years, Stroud Industrial has custom designed containment, or “blast” blankets, that are currently in use at steel mills, paper mills, manufacturing plants, and testing facilities throughout the country. These ballistic or machine guarding blankets are used on centrifugal and induction pressure blowers and fans, axial fans, belt guards, air movement systems, material handling systems, pressure vessels, milling machines, lumber mill wood chippers, and much more.
Stroud ballistic containment blankets are custom designed to your specifications, regardless of size, operating environment, or containment requirements. The degree of ballistic containment, heat generation, environment, and ease of use are just some of the considerations assessed in the design of a ballistic blanket. These blankets are available in Kevlar, ballistic nylon, aluminized Kevlar, and fiberglass. Stroud blankets are manufactured without seams, which can easily fail in a catastrophic event. Precise attachment points and ease of installation ensures that the product will be properly installed.
Independent lab-certified, shot-test results are available for a variety of testing parameters on request.
