Fire Blanket

Having experienced a “doh!” moment this weekend with some mapp gas, copper pipe, and, um, flammable materials, I found this flame shield blanket for $18.44 from Plumbing Surplus.  Now I won’t burn down the house next weekend when I give the project another try.  The blanket measures 18″ x 20″ and protects joists and studs from burn damage, flames, and sparks.

    Is that the same shield I got from Home Depot? Heavy tin foil on one side, about 1/2″ thick batting (asbestos??) on the other? Though I think the HD one is more like 1 foot by 1 foot — and I don’t recall what I paid for it last year.

    Man, can I use one of these or what? I have now re-plumbed my entire house and used mainly either a pancake griddle I stole from the kitchen or a piece of aluminum I had laying in the shed. While it did work and didn’t burn the house down :)), it did get very hot removing it afterwards. And on the other hand some advice, aluminum is not thick enough and burns holes!

    I’m glad to see it has TWO hanging holes as well which was a problem with my substitutions.

    Happy plumbing.

    Does this imply that you inflicted some real damage on your first try?!? Do tell!!

    Indeed.. it’s been a while since we had a good locally submitted “Doh!” of the week. (They seem to all involve YouTube and some thinning of the gene pool.)
