Powerblanket’s Extra-Hot (EH) heating blankets provide heat for rapid thawing capability and equipment and machinery protection for construction contractors, masons, utility companies, and others. The EH blankets feature GreenHeat technology, which creates a barrier of insulated heat for freeze prevention.
GreenHeat is a heat spreading system designed to provide an efficient and uniform distribution of heat while consuming low levels of energy.
The EH blankets are suited to accelerate the thawing of frozen ground (up to 24 in. deep) for concrete preparation, footings, excavation and other cold weather applications. In extreme weather environments, the blankets are effective for curing concrete within strict boundary parameters. Service trucks, fuel tanks and heavy equipment can be preheated with the blankets, which are also useful for melting and preventing snow, ice and frost accumulation on job sites, roofs and walkways.
Powerblanket EH blankets are offered in standard sizes as small as 2-by-2 ft. and as large as 6-by-12 or 3-by-25 ft., and custom sizes are also available. Standard models are rated to -10°F /-23°C while Roughneck Gray versions are rated to perform in temperatures as low as -40°F/C.
Each blanket is powered by 120V electricity and built with a durable outer shell that is winter-proof and water resistant. Powerblanket also offers non-horizontal versions of the blankets to meet UL/CSA/CE safety standards when required.
