FINE AND FLAT GROOVED MATTINGRubber Matting is available in various styles to suit
many different requirements. Our black fine-fluted matting
provides an in-expensive covering suitable for many
applications and is easily cut using standard tooling to fit
specific shapes. As a general non-slip covering it can be
easily shaped to fit vehicles, ladder treads or continuous
lengths – even for Darts mats!
Flat, or wide grooved matting is also available, however this
tends to give a slightly less slip-proof surface and is often
only used for cosmetic appearances.
Both profiles are available in 1 mt x 10mt and 1.2mt x 10mt rolls (special sizes can be made to
order) and are supplied with a specially roughened reverse surface to ensure the very best
adhesion when being stuck down. Thicknesses of 3mm, 4,5mm and 6mm are standard
however it is possible to manufacture much thicker than this if required.
Normally made in a Natural / Styrene Butadiene Rubber mix, these profiles are also available
in Neoprene when resistance to certain oils and chemicals is required.
ELECTRICAL SWITCHBOARD MATTINGUsed as a protective insulating matting, Switchboard
Matting is available in both British Standard and European
The British Standard BS.921 material at 9,5mm (3/8″) thick
is fully tested at 15000 volts and is available in 915mm wide
or 1200mm wide rolls (either 5mt, 10mt or 11 mt lengths).
This material is recommended for all work areas adjacent to
electrical insulations and is
normally requested as a
standard safety feature in these environments.
Produced from the same quality rubber, and tested to 11000 volts (using the BS.921 test
requirements) a thinner gauge is also manufactured at 6mm, where lower working voltages
are present and a less expensive material is suitable.
Both of the above Electrical Quality mattings are supplied tested, with documentation where
required, with the standard triangular, or fine-flute profile, giving a highly resilient covering
which can be used with switchgear installations, telephone exchanges, around generating
plant or on factory work-stations to provide the necessary safety protection for all personnel.
Along with the British Standard matting we can also provide the European Approved
Electrical Insulation Matting to VDE,0303. This is available in two thicknesses and is colour
coded to provide easy recognition. At 3mm thick the material is coloured Grey and is tested
to 20000 volts, while at 4.5mm thick the material is tested to 50000 volts.
The ratings quoted on all of the Electrical Switchboard Mattings are breakdown voltages and
the actual working voltage should always be checked when selecting which matting should
