A) Which product is the correct Electrical Insulating Rubber Matting for protection against electric shock risk? B) Choose the correct class based on your overall voltage requirements. C) BS EN 61111:2009 ( IEC 61111:2009 ) is the latest standard for electrical insulating rubber matting in providing electrical protection by classes defined. A) Product Name Model: GS-LV (Low Voltage) Corrugated Switchboard Matting / Non-Conductive Switchboard Mat / Dielectric / Low Voltage Insulation Rubber Mat, Corrugated ridges run parallel to the length of the roll.
B) Raw Material RoHS-2 NATURAL RUBBER ( NR ) BASE POLYMER
C) Purpose Switchboard matting is a non-conductive high-density rubber compound engineered to prevent electric shock around high voltage equipment. The non-conductive rubber compound creates an insulating barrier between the electrical source and the ground.
D) Scope Our GS-LV is under IEC 61111:2009 Class 0 , Ideal for Dielectric Voltage / Withstand Voltage : 10,000 VAC and Recommended Maximum use Voltage : 1,000 VAC ( Low Voltage Switchboard Matting )
E) Characteristics 1) Brand: GSE ® 2) Model: GS-LV ( Low Voltage ) Switchboard Matting / Low Voltage Insulation Rubber Mat 3) Top Surface - Anti Slip Corrugated with the anti-slip corrugated surface to provide a safe working environment. The pattern surface “grabs” the bottom of footwear, improving traction and safety from slippery. 4) Colour: Grey 5) Test Certificate IEC61111:2009 Withstand Voltage 220.127.116.11: Tested by 3rd Party Accredited Laboratory (TNB Labs) 6) Test Certificate ASTM D635: 2018 - Standard Test Method for Rate of Burning and/or Extent and Time of Burning of Plastics in a Horizontal Position:
Tested by 3rd Party Accredited Laboratory (SIRIM) 7) Test Certificate RoHS Directive Commission Directive (EU) 2015/863:
Tested by 3rd Party Accredited Laboratory (SGS) RoHS 1 & 2 8) Product Compliance Status:-
A) BS EN 61111 Clause 18.104.22.168 Class 0, Voltage Withstand Test
B) Comply with RoHS I & II ( RoHS Compliant Product ), RoHS, short for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. On 4th June 2015, Commission Directive (EU) 2015/863 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) to include the phthalates ( BBP, DBP, DEHP and DIBP, these are used to soften PVC and Vinyl products ) into ANNEX II of the RoHS Recast Directive.
The new law restricts each phthalate to no more than 0.1% ( mg/kg = ppm ; 0.1wt% = 1,000ppm ) in each homogeneous material of an electrical product.
F) Specifications 1) Nominal Thickness: 2.5mm 2) BS EN 61111: 2009 Class 0 ( Withstood 10kV ), GS-LV A) Model : GS-LV , Switchboard Matting, ( GREY colour ) , 2.5mm Tk x 915mm ( 3ft ) Width x 10,000mm ( 10 m ) Length / roll , 3) Weight / roll : Approximately 38kgs / roll

UPDATE INFORMATION FOR USERS : International Withdrawal of BS921:1976? This old standard is being withdrawn on 1st Jan 2013 ( Standard number, BS 921: 1976, Published in March 1976, Specification: Rubber mats for electrical purposes, status: WITHDRAWN as it conflicts with IEC61111:2009.
The direct Electrical Insulating Matting to replace BS921 is IEC 61111:2009 Class 0 for working up to 1kV AC.
For higher voltage, you may select higher classes 1, 2, 3 or 4 according to the voltage resistance required.
