Thermal blankets have numerous uses, from preventing frost damage during cold winters to covering loads in temperature controlled environments. Many convenience food operators and restaurant owners use this product to wrap around or cover temperature sensitive goods that need to be protected either from extreme cold or heat. These blankets are particularly effective when used as a division between frozen, chilled and ambient goods travelling in a single load or when such goods are un-palletized and require such protection or separation. When pre-chilled these thermal blankets can also be used to maintain cold temperatures in non-refrigerated vehicles over considerable distances and time spans.
Thermal blankets can also be used around young plants and seedlings as a ground cover to protect against frost in winter and excessive heat in summer.
