Does anyone know a good supplier for rubber blankets, as well as other electrical safety materials?

Dave,
Us at the PoCo over here get the Salisbury brand covers and retention clamps.
Just bear in mind that any equipment like this requires regular checking.
I carry all sizes of them in my truck.

They have good prices on lineman's glove sets, and looks like decent prices on other supplies as well.

Also to anyone that uses rubber or the newer neoprene stuff.
Keep them out of the sunlight, rolled up and out of harms way.
With respect to rubber gloves, it is frowned upon to store any gloves in containers except the dedicated container meant for storing them in.
Throwing tools in that container will puncture them.
Rubber gloves are a life-saver, not a convenience, treat them as such!.
Get some Glove-Talc, this makes it easier on the skin.
Oh and case you never knew, leather "outers" are a must.
I use rubber and neoprene gear at work every day, a good tradesman looks after his tools and that is what these bits of equipment are.
After all you wouldn't throw your best set of pliers on the ground, would you?.
