The safety of employees deployed to offshore oil rigs is of paramount importance. Any equipment on the rigs or that is being transported to them also needs due consideration. High value and specialised equipment needs to be protected in transit and during deployment from risks such as sparks from welding which can cause explosions. Cunningham covers was tasked with designing bespoke protective covers to address this very issue.
Cunningham Covers got to work on designing flame retardant tarpaulin covers that had added features such as non-spark eyelets and anti-static protection to prevent static damage to components during transit. We also use webbing loops as an alternative to brass or stainless steel eyelets to prevent sparks and foreign contamination. These covers are utilised by mining operations, offshore platforms in Zone 1 and 2 areas and any other highly flammable situations. Our team also manufacture other similar products such as welding blankets.
At an extreme heat level you can damage a welding blanket but at no point will it burn, making them an ideal solution during hotwork. The welding blankets protect you and your plant from any potential fire risks keeping any stray sparks from welding or grinding away from dangerous areas.
A Cunningham welding blanket is not an off the shelf product, these are specially engineered tarpaulins that are designed and tailored with you in mind by our experienced staff who are always ready for your call to discuss your desired requirements, after all why get a standard size tarp when you can get a clever protective cover designed for your exact requirement to keep you safe from any potential risks.
If you are working in a high risk environment where oil or gas is present and need to minimise the risk of an explosion or fire, talk to us about the protective covers and other risk management solutions we can provide.
