Same as term Blanket Insurance: single policy on the insured's property for (1) two or more different kinds of property in the same location; (2) same kind of property in two or more locations; (3) two or more different kinds of property in two or more different locations. Blanket coverage is ideal for such businesses as chain stores, all of whose property is covered with no specific limit on each particular property regardless of its location (thereby enabling the business to shift merchandise from store to store). This insurance can (but need not) be written on an ALL RISKS basis subject to exclusions of war, nuclear disaster, and wear and tear.
