Switchboard Matting is permanently placed in front of switchgear, motor control centers, and other high voltage apparatus to provide personal protection for workers. It is also used when tending take-up and pay-out reels and when adding or replacing conductors. Features & Benefits: ● Made from high-quality Type II material, Class 2 matting is 1/4” (6.4mm) thick and is tested to 20kV, and Class 4 matting is 1/2” thick and tested to 40kV. Both Classes of matting comply with ASTM D178, Class 2, and Class 4 specifications. The corrugated surface acts as a safety tread while reducing the possibility of metal particles becoming embedded. Class 2 Switchboard matting is available in 25-yard rolls or custom cut to specified lengths, while Class 4 matting is sold in 20 yard rolls only. ● Maximum Use AC Voltage Class 2, 17,000 volts: Class 4, 36,000 volts.
