Electrical Matting ASTM D178

Electrical Matting ASTM D178 | Safety Standard

Safety matting fully tested to specification ASTM D178 

This electrical matting ASTM D178 is a highly popular product. It is used in a variety of industries due to the range of safe working voltage the mats offer. All of our mats are independently tested to ensure that they meet safety standards. This electrical safety matting has the regulation standard stamped on the reverse of the roll at 1000mm intervals.

The top surface of the mats feature a fine ribbed design. This gives our electrical matting ASTM D178 two key features. Firstly it gives the mats a superior surface area which aids in the dispersal of electrical charge. Secondly the fine ribs provide great non slip properties. This means that one product can provide two forms of safety, saving you time and money.
