Electrical insulation mats prevent people working in high voltage areas from being earthed and suffering an injury. Insulation mats protect against electric shocks when working on electrical generators. A distinction is made between different classes, divided by the thickness of the insulation mat or the dielectric strength. Our COBAswitch electrical insulating matting conforms to BS EN 61111:2009.
Please note: Electrical insulation mats must be replaced as soon as an electric shock has occurred. Also, regular replacement every 12 months is recommended to ensure occupational safety.
IEC Standard offers a Class Selection System from 1000V to 36000V for end-users to select the right product to protect them against the possible working voltages they may be exposed to.
The Infographic above aims to provide you with greater insight to the IEC Classification System against maximum working voltages.
