SPRAY SHIELDS & FLANGE PROTECTORS

Safety Spray Shields are designed to prevent a catastrophe by temporarily containing hazardous leaks and sprays. Leaks can occur on piping systems conveying chemicals, high temperature fluids, and steam, which can harm workers, damage nearby equipment, and the environment.

  • Leaks of flammables, such as fuel, oil, or hydrogen, can create fire and explosion hazards.
  • Safety Spray Shields help meet regulatory standards set by agencies such as OSHA, EPA, BSEE, MSHA, SOLAS, ABS, DNV, and Lloyd’s. Spray Shields are also required by some insurance companies and underwriters, such as FM Global.
  • Constructed of metal or durable fabrics that are resistant to chemicals, UV, weather, & fire.
  • Fabric Shields are available in Teflon®, Polypropylene, PVC, and Polyethylene; solid cloth models contain a pH indicating patch which signals a leak by immediately changing color towards red if acidic or towards green if an alkali. The patch is replaceable which allows reuse of the shield.
  • Fabric Shields are ready to install quickly and simply by one person with the equipped hook and loop fasteners and draw cord.
  • Metal Shields are available in 2 different designs/models of stainless steel, and are equipped with quick latch or hose clamp style fasteners.
  • Shields available for all sizes and ratings, including ANSI, SAE, API, DIN, PN, BS, JIS, AS, SANS, & KS.
  • Experience and capabilities in engineering, designing, and manufacturing of standard and non-standard sizes are recognised worldwide.
