The manufacturers of the electrical insulating mats produces a premium brand for electrical insulating mat according to IS 5424:1969. The insulating mat is produced from premium quality rubber mat for electrical purpose. The electrical mats are highly recommended for the safety of the workmen against the electrical hazards. The rubber mats are highly economical and suitable for general use also. The use of the rubber mats are recommended according to the latest Indian Standard, that is, IS 15652:2006 for supreme electrical insulation.

The material utilized in the insulating rubber mat is produced out of natural rubber having proper electrical resistance and mechanical properties. The Insulating Rubber Mats are available from 6mm to 25mm thickness in standard sizes of 1M x 2m with Checkered or Fluted Design. The test certificate of the manufacturer is also provided along with the supply.


The area of application:

  • Close to HT/LT Control panels
  • Electrical substations
  • The transformers, generator and lift rooms
  • In front of the switchboards
  • Around the buss bars
  • Usage on Live equipment whether Outdoor/Indoor or On-site.

Let us take a look at some of the variations of the Insulating Mats.

How to order the insulation matting?

Kindly mention the following fields for ease of the suppliers:

  • The working voltage
  • The thickness, length and width
  • The color
  • The total quantity which is required.

The insulation mats are manufactured according to the AS/NZS 2978-1995 Standard which is set by the Joint Standards Australia/New Zealand Committee EL/4. The safety mats protect and insulate people from electrical equipment generated fatal shocks. The company offers all the types of electrical insulation matting’s which include switchboard mats for protection from electrical shocks.


There are two classes of matting’s available:

  • Class A (Thicker mats) are utilized for common purpose applications.
  • Class B (the mats which are light in weight) ones are utilized upon flat indoor surfaces.

Both types of the products have been built according to the AS/NZS 2978 Standard which is projected while protecting the personnel.

The circumstances involve the possibility of contact with electrical equipment or conductors whose voltage does not surpass 650 V a.c. r.m.s. (or d.c.), between the conductors or even between earth and conductors. The test certificate of the manufacturer is also provided along with the supply.
