This webpage is designed to give informative guidance to potential and existing users wishing to conform to the new EU/UK requirements for the 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This old standard is being withdrawn on 1st Jan 2013 ( Standard number, BS 921: 1976, Published in March 1976, Specification: Rubber mats for electrical purposes, status: WITHDRAWN ) as it conflicts with IEC61111:2009.
C) Quality Assurance
Our Switchboard Mattings are backed with a detailed test certificate from an independently accredited Malaysia Test Facility.
Our Switchboard matting / high voltage insulation rubber was tested according to TNB technical specifications:
A) BS EN 61111 Clause 126.96.36.199, Voltage Withstand Test
Scope , Usage & Application :-
High Voltage Insulation Rubber Mats / Non-Conductive Mats - Most commonly called Switchboard matting, these non-conductive mats insulate workers, protecting them from deadly shocks generated by high voltage equipment.
High Voltage Insulation Rubber mats are used as a floor covering around electrical panels such as Power Transformer Rooms, Sub-Station, High Voltage Panels, LT & HT Labs, Control Panels etc.
It acts as a safety pre-cautious for workers from electrical shock whether they are involved directly in electricity generation, transmission, distribution, or its use.
Eventually, the High Voltage Insulation Rubber Mats need to be tested ( with proven data from the local or international accredited testing body ) before being placed in electrical generator rooms.
A) Product Characteristic:-
1) Material: RoHS 2 NATURAL RUBBER ( NR ) BASE POLYMER
2) Model Name : ( GS-SLG ) Switchboard Matting / High Voltage Insulation Rubber Mat -- with Anti Slip ( Corrugated ) on Top Surface, Withstood 50kV ( Class 4 ), 6mm Nominal Thickness, Black Colour with Test Certificate No. : UPON REQUEST ( BS EN 61111: 2009 Clause 188.8.131.52 )
3) Product Compliance Status:-
A) BS EN 61111 Clause 184.108.40.206 Class 4, Voltage Withstand Test
B) Comply with 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.
4) Surface finishing: with an anti-slip corrugated surface to provide a safe working environment, Corrugated ridges run parallel to the length of the roll.
5) Available Dimension:
Material Type : Natural Rubber ( NR ) base polymer with anti-slip corrugated surface
