Electrical Switchboard Safety matting

Over the last 25 years we’ve built up a huge amount of trust with our floor mats customers, based on integrity and the high quality of our rubber matting products.

One of the main areas where that’s crucially important is with our electrical safety matting solutions, where purchasing exactly the right rubber flooring product can literally be the difference between life and death.

Today, we’re trusted by many blue chip companies in the oil, gas and shipping industries to supply them with high quality electrical safety matting. Over the years we’ve successfully exported electrical rubber switchboard matting to over 20 countries worldwide.

High quality electrical safety matting

Our clients often need their teams to work safely with very high electrical voltages every day. So, for example, we provide bespoke electrical safety matting solutions to firms who need to safely insulate their teams working in front of HV or LV switchboards using rubber matting.

Every commercial building has a switchboard and high quality rubber safety mat products are essential to keeping workers safe while working on live apparatus.

Our experienced team are happy to discuss the best rubber mats or rubber flooring product for your specific situation with you, to prevent any risks of electrical shocks or accidents

Whatever your specific requirements, you can be confident that our electrical safety matting solutions are designed, manufactured and supplied to the very highest international standards.

All of our high and low voltage rubber electrical switchboard matting products are produced using only the highest quality rubber compounds.

Internationally recognised standards

All of our rubber mats are then rigorously independently tested to comply with all the following specifications: European IEC61111, BS921, VDEO303 & American ASTM D178.

These specifications are globally recognised in many industries by electrical switchboard equipment manufacturers. Take a look on the equipment itself and it will give you the working voltage or tested voltage as well as other information about the parameters it is working within.

Have this information to hand if possible when you give us a call, as it will make it easier to find the electrical safety mat solution to suit the apparatus and the relevant switchboard matting regulations. If you’re having any trouble finding this information, just give us a call.

Once our rubber safety mat products arrive with you, you’ll see that they come supplied fully stamped along the complete length of the roll of rubber mat.

We provide letters of conformity along with test certificates where requested with each consignment for free. A small fee is charged if they are to be attested by our Chamber of Commerce.

Bespoke rubber matting solutions

Whether you need full rolls or single rubber mats, we can supply our electrical switchboard matting in whatever cut lengths you need for your space.

The rubber mats have fine flutes on one side and a cloth impression on the other. This means that the matting grips well in all conditions.

As there is no time definition as to when the electrical safety matting should be replaced unless an electrical shock has occurred then it should be replaced immediately. The flutes are also a useful indicator of when the rubber matting should be replaced – just keep an eye out for any signs of wear over time. We also supply electrical safety matting with a smooth finish. Again, once this starts showing signs of wear just give us a call to arrange a replacement.

When you’re working with live electrical equipment, choosing the right rubber safety mat is essential. Give our expert team a call on 0161 797 6785 to discuss the best options for your business.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is thickness an important factor in electrical matting?

Thickness is determined by the mat specification. The authorisation body determines what the thickness of the matting is to meet the paticular specification.

The thickness therefore does not necessarily mean the thicker the matting the higher the protection in working voltage terms.

Which way up do I use Electrical safety matting?

It is best to have the flutes or textured surface uppermost to use the anti-slip benefit however you can use the side with the identity marking on if you wish it makes no difference to the capability aspect of the matting.
