Effective Fire Mitigation

Protecting Mining Assets & Crews

Comply with Safety & Fire Standards

Easy to Install & Maintain

Shielding extreme-heated engine and exhaust parts with Aletek thermal insulation blankets provides effective fire mitigation for mining assets while improving crew safety.




Thermal insulation blankets create a physical barrier between superheated engine parts and flammable hazards. To prevent engine fires, cover these components with thermal blankets. You can think of blankets as your fleet’s PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).

New Assets, Rebuilds and Replacements

Exhaust blanket packages and kits

Complete packages or group-based kits

Aletek blankets are available as a full-engine package or in groups. Complete kits are ideal for engine rebuild projects or safeguarding newly acquired assets. Our insulation cover groups enable deployment in stages, such as turbo and manifold implementation. Ordering in groups is ideal for replacing damaged blanket sections.

As listed below, we offer several blanket cover groups depending on engine configuration.

Heat-critical component blanket kits

  • Manifold shielding
  • Turbo lagging
  • Turbo wastegate covers (dozers)
  • Junction insulation

Proximity and radiant heat blanket kits

  • Engine pipes and exhaust lagging
  • Bellow covers
  • Mufflers and tailpipe blankets
  • Firewall shielding (excavators)

Monitoring and maintaining exhaust blankets

A thermal blanket, like car tyres, needs periodic inspection, adjustment, and replacement when excessively worn. We have created a scheduled maintenance checklist to help prevent engine fires and maximise blanket life. For an effective protective barrier, review blanket coverage and integrity on an ongoing basis.

Australian-made for your mining fleet
