What is a spade or spacer?

A Spade Blind (also known as Spades & Spacers, Paddle Blind, Skillet Blind, Pancake Blind, Slip Blind or Line Blind) resemble the shape of a paddle (which is where “Paddle Blind” comes from). These types of blinds are generally applied in piping systems that do not require constant maintenance. Spades are used more as a temporary blocking device to stop flow in a process piping system. Sometimes optional Paddle type Spacers can be used in-line when returning the system to operation.

Spades are primarily used to block flow only, as opposed to a Spectacle Blind that can both allow flow and block flow. Spades are preferably used where access is limited and are needed to be used in tight spaces. Spades are sometimes chosen over Spectacle Blinds due to weight and ease of install – as Spades are lighter than a Spec Blind.
