Disclaimer : * Note : Users need to evaluate suitability for their industries use ( applications ) before placing order from us . The Information provided on this website best advsie our customers corresponds to current electrical matting standards . In the individual case it is the sole responsibility of the customer to evaluate requirements , in particular if specified properties are sufficient for use .
This webpage is designed to give informative guidance to potential and existing users wishing to conform to the new EU/UK requirements for supply and use of matting with electrical safety and resistance characteristics and make the correct choice from the explanations and details listed below .
A) Which product is the correct Electrical Insulating Matting for protection against electric shock risk ? BS EN 61111:2009 is the latest standard for electrical insulating matting in providing electrical protection.
B) International Withdrawal of BS921:1976 ? This old standard is being withdrawn on 1st Jan 2013 ( Standard number , BS 921: 1976 , Specification : Rubber mats for electrical purposes , status : WITHDRAWN ) as it conflicts with IEC61111:2009. The direct Electrical Insulating Matting to replace BS921 is class 0 IEC 61111:2009 for working up to 1kV AC . For higher voltage , you may select higher classes 1 , 2 , 3 or 4 according to voltage resistance required.
C) Quality Assurance Our Switchboard Mattings are backed with a detailed test certificate & RoHS compliant from an independently accredited Malaysia Test Facility .
Our Switchboard matting / high voltage insulation rubber was tested according to technical specification : A) BS EN 61111 Clause 22.214.171.124 , Voltage Withstand Test B) Complied to RoHS I & II , 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 ) 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.

High Voltage Insulation Rubber mats are NORMALLY used as floor covering electrical panels at Power Transformer Rooms , Sub-Station , High Voltage Panels , LT & HT Labs, Control Panels etc . it acts as a safety pre-caution for workers from electrical shock whether they are involved directly in electricity generation, transmission, distribution or other usage .
Eventually , the High Voltage Insulation Rubber Mats need to be tested ( with proven data from LOCAL or international accredited testing body ) before being placed at electrical generator rooms .
Carelessness of handling electrical apparatus or Mis-used of high voltage insulation rubber sheets / mats could be harmful to workers . for example , Matting Class 0 ( 10kV ) or Class 1 ( 20 kV ) High Voltage Insulation Rubber Mats placed at Class 2 , 30 kV working environment of electrical generator rooms .
Choosing the correct High Voltage Insulation Rubber Mat / Sheet is extremely IMPORTANT , These mats not only save money, but they save lives because a human life is above everything . We strongly recommend our customers to use one class higher ( * if your cost persists ) than the nominal working voltage environment to secure safety of workers . Our goal is to assist to achieve " ZERO " industrial accidents resulted from voltage leakage .
Life span : The Life span of The Switchboard Rubber Mats very much depending on Rubber Compound Itself and external environment factors such as :- 1) Foot traffic , high foot traffic reduces the rubber’s life span . 2) Environments : such as exposure to oils , moisture , caustic chemicals or fluids and long exposure to high temperature ( direct exposure to sunlight ) . 3) Cleaning Method : No harmful detergents. Know-How : When to change my Switchboard Rubber Mats ? 1) Our recommendation is to CHANGE IT , when you found your rubber mats become " harden" and / or crack ( puncture ) due to ageing . (It is highly recommended by Electrical Professionals that electrical insulation rubber mat be replaced every 12 months of usage for optimum performance) , Electrical Insulation Rubber matting is not permanent by its nature and need to be replaced periodically & consistently.
