Product to Help with Arc Flash and Blast Protection?

Hello! I'm working on an arc flash situation as well as a blast protection scenario and am considering products like blast curtains and blankets.


For the arc flash, the idea is to put a thick (30 ounce +) blanket (fiberglass core in silicone rubber sheet) behind the electrical panels.


For the blast curtain, it would be a similar product, hung from floor to ceiling (track at ceiling, secured at floor and sides) around oxygen tanks being filled.


Would this type of product be sufficient for these situations AND help limit or eliminate impact to nearby workers?


Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
