Electrical Safety Matting

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd supply an extensive range of high-quality solid rubber sheeting (such as electrical rubber matting sheets), one of which includes a number of rubber matting products in various grades and finishes, sometimes also called floor matting or safety matting, each manufactured with characteristics suited for use in different applications. 

One type of matting we can offer is a selection of Electrical Rubber or Electrical Safety Matting, which is usually manufactured as continuous rolls, but can be cut down and supplied as electrical rubber matting sheets or ‘mats’, usually one meter by one meter or two meters by one meter as standard. 

Even though this material is stocked in standard roll and electrical rubber matting sheets sizes, our in-house conversion services allow customers the option of having their mats cut down into a specific shape or size for easier installation.

What is Electrical Safety Matting ?

Electrical rubber matting sheets can be used as floor coverings located in individual work stations, to serve a number of purposes such as creating a non-slip and easy to clean surface or as floor protection.

The rubber itself is known for its electrical insulating properties as it reduces or stops electric currents therefore electrical rubber matting sheets are used in high voltage environments such as plant rooms, switchboards or where live electrical equipment is being handled to protect workers from electrical shocks. 

Electrical rubber matting sheets are manufactured with a fine ribbed or fluted textured surface which makes it non-slip for extra safety when standing or walking on.


Electrical safety matting stands as a paramount safety solution, ensuring the well-being of personnel operating in areas with elevated voltage levels. This specialized electrical insulating mat not only meets but exceeds the stringent safety standards set forth by IEC 61111:2009 / BS EN 61111:2009. Its design is meticulously tailored for placement in front of critical installations such as switchboards and other locales housing high-voltage equipment.

Crafted with precision and adherence to safety regulations, this rubber roll matting serves as a protective barrier, mitigating the risk associated with electrical shocks. The fine ribbed texture enhances its grip and provides an additional layer of insulation. This design is particularly advantageous in environments where safety is paramount, and the potential for electrical hazards is a constant concern.

One notable feature of this matting is its versatility, as it comes in three different thickness options. This allows for customization based on the specific requirements of the working environment. The matting is categorized to accommodate various classes of working voltage, ranging from Class 0 for lower voltage applications to Class 4 for high-voltage scenarios. This flexibility ensures that the matting is suitable for a diverse range of electrical settings.

In practical terms, the Fine Ribbed Electrical Rubber Safety Matting acts as a proactive safety measure, creating a secure workspace for individuals working in close proximity to high-voltage equipment. Its robust construction and adherence to international safety standards make it an indispensable component in maintaining a secure and compliant electrical work environment.

Call For Specialized Sizes And Requirements

Electrical Rubber Matting has been designed for use in areas where high voltage and live equipment is presently creating a risk of electric shock. 

Switchboard or electrical rubber matting sheets are manufactured using rubber, which does not allow the flow of electricity (acting as an electrical insulator), it provides underfoot comfort, a non-slip surface and is available in different grades for different levels of voltage protection. 

Electrical rubber matting sheets can be used where there is a risk of electrical shocks such as near switchboards, plant rooms, live equipment or machine and lift control gear, etc

  • Electrical insulator
  • Protection from live electrical and faulty equipment
  • Non-slip textured surface
  • Available in a range of classes
  • Disperses electrical discharge - reducing the risk of electric shock
  • Manufactured to meet safety standards

Rubber sheets, including electrical rubber matting sheets, can be used for their excellent electrical insulation properties, meaning they can reduce or stop electrical currents, therefore protecting workers from electric shocks.  Electrical matting sheets are available in a range of classes and thicknesses dependent upon the level of voltage involved.

The fine fluted textured pattern creates a non-slip surface which further disperses discharge with a cloth impression underside to give the matting additional grip. Electrical Rubber Matting is usually manufactured in roll form but can be cut to bespoke sized electrical rubber matting sheets or pads to fit into awkward spaces.

450V matting - fully certified and tested to 11,000 volts with a recommended safe working voltage of 450 volts.  

BS921 - 650V - Safety matting fully tested to specification BS921:1976, tested to 15,000 volts with a recommended safe working voltage of 650 volts.

ASTM D178 - Health & Safety regulated matting in a choice of strengths: 7500V @ 4.5mm, 17,500V @ 6.5mm, 26,000V @ 9.5mm and 36,000V @12.7mm. 

IEC 61111:2009 - Health & Safety regulated electrical matting, meets international safety standards covering from 1000V to 36,000V, and is available in thicknesses of 3mm to 6mm.
