Automotive buss or blade type fuses are usually considered to be good for up to 36 volts. (its usually not an issues since 99% of the time they are used on 12v systems)

For the 400 amp high voltage fuse you are going to have to try and find a high voltage motor controller slow blow fuse. That is the closest thing to your application I can think of.
I have the 400 amp fuse already. It shipped with the controller.

I'm just concerned with the smaller fuses. I checked out lowes and looked at the fuses. The blade fuses, which I was wanting, were rated at 36 volts. So were most of the glass ones. So they looked to be the same.

I didn't buy anything at lowes because I didn't find anything specific. Will the 36v fuses work for this application? Because my bigger main question is how do I determine the voltage rating needed for the fuse?
