Electrical rubber mats should be applied at any point where Operatives are working with high voltage equipment where the risk of electrical shocks is high, including:
- In front of switchboards
- In front of machine control gear
- In plant rooms
- In lift control gear rooms
- Portable protection for site engineers working on live equipment
and need protection from the dangers of electric shock.
Rubber is known for its exceptional electrical insulating properties. With the ability to reduce or stop electric currents, electrical rubber matting or switchboard matting is a common surface for high voltage environments. Used to protect workers from electrical shocks it is ideal for plant rooms, control rooms, switchboards and places where individuals handle live equipment.
We offer the most extensive and compliant range of Electrical Safety Matting/Switchboard Matting in the UK - IEC61111 (all classes), ASTM D178, BS 921
Choose with care
Electrical safety mats are made specifically for the purpose of shock prevention and are tested to withstand certain specified voltages, so it is crucial that the right level of protection is allowed for in line with the voltage of the equipment that is being worked on.
Electrical safety matting provides an insulated floor surface to offer increased protection for users from earth contact through the floor.
When selecting electrical safety matting it is imperative to note the maximum operating voltage relating to each product to ensure it provides adequate protection
Maximum Working Voltage (kV)
This describes the maximum working voltage (kV) a mat can provide protection too. This is safety critical and an essential part of the selection process
