Rubber Blankets--A Critical Safety Component

high-voltage products

Hastings, a manufacturer of hotline tools and equipment, designs high-voltage products with safety in mind. The rubber blanket is a critical component of lineman safety, protecting workers from accidental exposure to energized power lines, conductors and hardware. Users can install rubber blankets to cover a wide range of potentially hazardous equipment—including pins, insulators, pole line hardware and underground residential distribution (URD) equipment.
      Blankets come standard in the highly visible Hastings Yellow to allow for easy detection of contamination, carbon tracking and other hazards. Hastings offers a natural and synthetic version of the blanket. A variety of accessories for storage, quick access and ease of use also are available.
