Hot work operations – Welding, brazing, cutting, grinding, sawing, soldering and the use of open flames, can all create the ignition source of a fire.
Sparks and molten globules of metal can fly, or roll, for long distances and come to rest in holes, cracks, or other out of the way places, where they can smoulder before igniting a blaze.
It is imperative that hot work is recognised as a potential danger and that this work is correctly and safely managed. NK Thermal can play an important part in this management, by providing fire and heat protective covers which will shield any combustible materials and isolate areas of work.
