High & Low Voltage Electrical Insulation Safety Mats
The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) have introduced IS:15652, superseding IS:5424/69 in the year 2007 with the view of technical advancement & more strictest Industrial safety parameters. These mats safeguard life of technicians in case of any current leakage while working on AC & DC installations. Synthetic Insulation mat confirms compete safety of workers handling live High Voltage electrical equipment.
Safety Mats for Electrical Applications are divided in to three main classes based on Voltage Ratings. Recommended division are as follows:
Class Thickness Working Voltage (In KV) Proof voltage Break Down Voltage
A 2.0 mm 3.3 10KV/3 minutes 30 KV
B 2.5 mm 11 22KV/3 minutes 45 KV
C 3.0 mm 33 36KV/3 minutes 65 KV
Most preferred colors are Black, Blue & Grey but other colors are also made available on request. All offered colors are manufactured without metallic derivatives.
Minute abrasions are provided on upper surface to mat to make surface Anti-skid.
As per standard width is normally 1meter & Length up to 10meter per Roll but other sizes are made available as per requirement of the purchaser.
Working Temperature Range:
Under Normal conditions withstand physical, mechanical & Electrical properties for temperate ranging from -10°C to +60°C.
Every meter of mat should be marked with respective Class symbol, Lot No. or Batch number and Manufacturer’s Identity or Brand name.
Packed in Gunny bags of Jute/Hessian cloth to avoid mechanical damage to the material in transit.
Workmanship & Finish:
Each Meter of Mat should be free from all type of harmful physical irregularities such as pinholes, cracks, blisters, cuts, conductive embedded foreign matter, creases, pinch marks, voids, entrapped air and prominent ripples.
Silent Features of Electrical Insulating Mat As Per IS:15652-2006 :-
NOTE: Continuous abrasion of Insulated mats due to regular foot movement over it results in distortion of physical, mechanical & electrical properties of mat, therefore a regular visual inspection is recommended for confirmation of appropriate service of mats. Any sign of deformation mean replacement of part or entire mat.
