Here at Monomer, we stock three specifications of rubber switchgear matting: 450 volt, 650 volt and 1000 volt electrical safety matting. Our 650 volt electrical switchgear matting offers middle of the range protection and is often used in applications that may require a higher protection rate than the 450V offers but where the BSEN 61111 spec is not required. Our rubber matting for electrical switch rooms comes with a certificate of conformity, ensuring all our products are manufactured to the same high standard.
650 volt rubber matting can be crucial for boosting operational safety within electrical switch rooms. Thanks to its excellent electrical insulating properties, rubber matting for electrical switch rooms can protect individuals from dangerous shocks and thereby minimise potential risks within electrical switch rooms.
Why is rubber matting for electrical switch rooms necessary?
Often accepted as being one of the most hazardous workplaces, environments exposed to high voltages such as electrical switch rooms expose employees to potential electric shocks, electrocution fatalities, outbreaks of fire and perhaps even explosions.
The devastating consequences mentioned above are often caused by switchgear failures involving:
In order to keep such hazards within the workplace at a minimum, it is the duty of every business owner to analyse any potential risks and educate themselves on how to manage, assess and maintain their operations. This is because failure to comply with the electrical safety regulations can lead to legal and financial implications.
Applications which require 650V electrical switchgear matting
Similar to our 450V rubber switchgear matting, the 650V electrical switchgear matting will be used in comparable working environments, but where the need for protection may be slightly higher. Protective equipment is compulsory in hazardous working environments and electrical safety matting is a common type of safety equipment, often used in manufacturing and industrial applications.
Our 650 volt rubber matting for electrical switchrooms is tested to 15KV and is resistant to 650 working volts, providing protection from electric shocks and protecting maintenance staff, operators and contractors in hazardous electrical working environments.
Purchasing 650V rubber switchgear matting from Monomer
At Monomer, all of our electrical switchgear matting is produced from high quality rubber and is ribbed in order to provide a non-slip surface.
