StaticWorx Switchboard rubber matting protects workers from electrical shocks generated by high-voltage equipment, such as fuse boxes, control panels, generators, and transformers.
Unlike other StaticWorx products, our Switchboard mats are not conductive. The matting is insulative – with no static control properties. Insulative mats, designed for safety, inhibit the flow of electricity from high-voltage equipment and prevent transfer of electricity to workers.
Our Switchboard matting meets ANSI ASTM D-178, and has dielectric resistance to 30,000 volts.
Dielectric strength is defined as the electrical strength of an insulating material. In a sufficiently strong electric field the insulating properties of an insulator breaks down allowing flow of charge. Dielectric strength is measured as the maximum voltage required to produce a dielectric breakdown through a material.
Staticworx Switchboard Matting is also available in military specification grade MIL-DTL-15562, used by the U.S. Navy.
Military electrical-grade switchboard matting is manufactured with a combination of flame retardants and smoke suppressants to meet stringent flame and smoke density standards required for MIL-DTL-15562G specification. Staticworx Mil Grade Matting is approved for use by all subordinates of the Department of Defense, including the U.S. Navy.
StaticWorx understands electricity. The StaticWorx management team has over forty years of experience working with conductive and non-conductive matting from both rubber and vinyl. Our manufacturing team tests every production batch to confirm the margin of safety and we permanently imprint test results on the back of every Switchboard mat.
StaticWorx Switchboard matting is verified for dielectric resistance to 30,000 VAC per ASTM D-178. Our manufacturing team performs extreme testing on every production batch to confirm that our formula delivers a higher margin of safety. Matting is branded on back per ASTM specification.
If you are located in the U.S., the standard for electrical switchboard matting is ANSI/ASTM D-178. This Quality Standard set up by the American Society for Testing and Materials assesses the quality of switchboard matting and issues certificates of compliance.
When you purchase ASTM D-178-marked switchboard matting, you get fully compliant, high-performing, quality electrical insulating mats.
TO BE ADDED ONCE TABLE ISSUE FIXED
The property of “insulation” refers to a material’s ability to store as opposed to conduct electrical current… An insulator is the opposite of a conductor.
Regular—non-ESD—floors are insulative. Insulative materials stop or resist the flow of electricity, and cannot be grounded. With no pathway to ground, static charges stay in place, on the surface of the floor.
With StaticWorx ESD flooring, you never have to choose between performance and aesthetics. Our beautiful, high quality ESD carpet tile, vinyl, EC rubber tile and sheet goods, and ESD epoxy floors are as beautiful as they are functional.
