The insulation matting is designed to prevent workers from being “grounded” and to provide security in the event of an electrical shock when operating high voltage devices. The upper waveform improves friction and is easy to clean. Every millimeter of the rate is tested according to the ANSI / ASTM D-178 specifications. It must be replaced every 12 months for optimum safety. It is recommended for distribution boards, switchgear devices, substations, transformers, generators, electric working chairs.
The different types of rates are provided by the following levels of protection:
- Switchboard Matting Class 1 – Recommended using up to 7,500 volts (tested for 10,000)
- Switchboard Matting Class 2 – Recommended use of up to 17,000 volts (tested for 20,000)
