SwitchRib Electrical Rubber Insulating Matting

Introducing SwitchRib Electrical Insulating Matting - the specialist matting designed to protect operatives from electrical shocks. Conforming to the most recent internationally recognised safety standard IEC 61111:2009 /BS EN 61111:2009, SwitchRib is available in three thicknesses to meet the different classes of working voltage, making it ideal for use in front of switchboards and other high voltage equipment.

Class 0, Class 2 and Class 4 versions are all available, so you can be sure to find the right level of protection for your needs. Don't take chances with electrical safety - choose SwitchRib Electrical Insulating Matting.

SwitchRib is available in three thicknesses;

  • 3mm - BS EN 61111:2009 Class 0 (Working 1KV - Tested to 10KV)
  • 4mm - BS EN 61111:2009 Class 2 (Working 17KV - Tested to 30KV)
  • 5mm - BS EN 61111:2009 Class 4 (Working 36KV - Tested to 50KV)

Each of these can be purchased in either a 1m x 10m roll or in a custom length, simply enter the required length in CM and we will deliver the matting cut to size.

The classification of the matting is shown on the reverse of the insulating matting.

SwitchRib is also resistant to Acid and Oil, making it ideal for use in more challenging environments.


First Mats - Product Scores

Anti Fatigue Anti-Fatigue - 1/3 This mat offers Good anti-fatigue properties. This is measured by ASTM D3547 which records the compression and decompression of the mat. The higher the rating the better its anti fatigue qualities.
Slip Resistance Slip Resistance - 2/3 This mat provides Very Good slip resistance. This is measured by ASTM C1028-89 & DIN-E-51130, 51097 which tests the force required to cause slippage of a load across the mat. The higher the rating the higher the slip resistance
Wear Resistance Wear Resistance - 3/3 This mat offers Very Good resistance to wear. This is measured by ASTM D3844-92 which subjects the mat to 5000 cycles under an abrasive wheel. The higher the rating the longer the life span of the mat.
High Voltage Environments High Voltage - Suitable for high voltage environments
Oil Safe Oil Resistant - Some mats deteriorate with oil. This mat is Oil & Grease Resistant making it suitable for all Industrial and Food production areas where this is an issue.
