Engineered-Fit Heat Shield for Robust Heat Reduction Needs
As powerful as thermal blankets can be in reducing heat transference, sometimes what’s called for is a different solution. If you need something more robust to shield your heat source to protect personnel or equipment, a heat shield may be the perfect solution. OCTI has deployed heat shields in a variety of applications, including under cab heat protection, off-road construction equipment with space constraints, and driver shielding on buses.
One of the biggest hazards and concerns of drivers and management in the trucking industry is the amount of heat generated by the engine radiating up into the cab. OCTI has designed a heat shield that easily fits on the underside of the cab, deflecting the heat away from the driver.

The Importance of Using Heat Shields
There are many instances when a heat shield is the optimal choice to install rather than a traditional blanket. Let our experienced design and engineering teams recommend the right heat shield to meet your needs.
Thermal insulation coverings, whether they are soft blankets or metal encapsulated rigid coverings, protect people and equipment. The temperatures in a typical mobile crane cab can reach temperatures in excess of 140 degrees. With our heat shields in place, we can reduce temperatures the operator experiences to below 100 degrees. This creates a much more comfortable environment for the operator.
Protecting Sensitive Equipment
It is impractical to wrap your sensors and gauges in a thermal wrap. You would not be able to read the gauges, nor would your sensors work accurately. Instead, you can protect them with a heat shield that would deflect the heat being generated away from sensitive instruments and material.
Heat Shield Applications
Heat Shields are commonly used for:
- Power Generator Enclosures
- Engine Exhaust Piping
- Diesel Exhaust Silencers
- Oil and Gas Pumping Skids on Exposed Piping
- Marine Exhaust and Engine Room Exposed Piping
- Refuse Truck Exhaust Systems
- Semi-truck Under Cab to Prevent Heat from Affecting Operators.
- Exposed Piping in Mechanical Rooms for Personnel Safety
