5 Common Mistakes People Make When Choosing Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats

Currently, many leading companies and organizations, including various industrial factories, office buildings, hospitals, hotels, schools, residential areas, or even construction sites with high voltage electrical panels or areas at risk from electric currents, have installed Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats as flooring to prevent electrical hazards for workers and to comply with legal safety regulations.


However, there are often mistakes made by most people in choosing Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats

1. Overlooking the Quality of Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats

Most suppliers or purchasers tend to determine the choice based on price, neglecting the quality of the Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats, or even worse, substituting them with ordinary rubber sheets to save costs or for resale at higher profits. This can lead to fatal accidents due to substandard Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats.


2. Ignoring Working Voltage

Most people only consider the thickness of the Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats and overlook the actual working voltage. Each model and brand of Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats, even with the same thickness, may not guarantee the same voltage resistance. Therefore, in addition to specifying the desired thickness, the Max Use Voltage should also be considered. The higher the voltage resistance of the Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats compared to the actual working voltage, the safer it is for use.


3. Neglecting Documentation and Standards

Most people often overlook the importance of documentation and standards. Choosing Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats should be based on updated and referenced test results, such as Certificates of Analysis (C.O.A), product manuals, and Test Reports, to ensure that the sheets meet safety standards, typically adhering to the IEC 61111 international standard.


4. Not Considering Usage Factors

Many people do not consider factors such as oil, chemicals, fire resistance, slip resistance, or other environmental conditions. Even if the Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats can withstand the voltage, they may not meet other usage requirements, reducing their lifespan. Nowadays, there are various grades of insulation rubber sheets to choose from, such as standard grade, flame-retardant grade, slip-resistant grade, oil and chemical resistant grade, outdoor grade, or the AirTex grade which is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high voltages, suitable for wrapping high voltage cables or for lightweight applications.


5. Not Considering the Brand and Reliable Suppliers

The brand and reliability of suppliers, with extensive experience, specialized knowledge, and a history of serving both domestic and international customers, are crucial. Reliable suppliers can provide advice on selecting and installing Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats safely and in compliance with electrical work standards.


When installing or purchasing insulation rubber sheets next time, it's important to consider the quality of the Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats, the actual working voltage, standard documentation, installation and usage factors, the product brand, and the credibility of the supplier. This ensures the highest safety for the users of the Electrical Insulating Rubber Mats.
