MATS & COVERS

Our PVC and EPDM rubber Mats and Covers provide the highest levels of protection and service for electrical contractors and Utility workers. Whether HV or LV, there is a Class of Mat available right through from 650 V to 36 KV.

Crafted over decades to refine a tailor-made product that is simple and easy to use, while providing comprehensive levels of protection during live works.

Whether on overhead lines, or in pits or trenches, live works are an ongoing requirement for Utility workers and contractors. In order to provide reliable and safe power continuously, scheduled outages are not a preferred working option.

Our PVC range of overhead Line Covers and Substation Drapes are easy to maintain, robust and have an industry track record of decades in use. Optioned with a range of fasteners to make light work during installations including insulated magnets, press studs and eyelets. They come pre-fabricated in customer kits or as individual products for most applications.

Our EPDM range of overhead Line Covers, Substation Drapes and stand on Ground Mats have the added benefit of having better thermal withstand (both cold and hot) and are more stable and flexible under most conditions. Mats conform to IEC 61111 includings Class 0, Class 1, Class 2, Class 3 and Class 4 suitable for use from 650 volts through to 36KV. EPDM Line Covers and Substation Drapes are typically sold with Velcro as a convenient fixing option.

Both styles of products come with a critical safety feature of dual layer which allow easier identification of any wear and tear which can affect the performance of the product.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q:What standards do the Mats & Covers comply with?

AS 4202 as a 650 volt Cover or
IEC 61111 as a 1000v through to 36,000v Mat

Q:What do the Classes signify?

Class II (AS 4202) = 650 V maximum use
Class 0 (IEC 61111) = 1000 V maximum use
Class 1 (IEC 61111) = 5000 V maximum use
Class 2 (IEC 61111) = 17,000 V maximum use
Class 3 (IEC 61111) = 26,500 V maximum use
Class 4 (IEC 61111) = 36,000 V maximum use

Q:What applications are Mats & Covers suitable for?

Mats are typically used to stand on in front of switchboard panels, pillars, pits or operating live electrical apparatus.
Covers are typically used to drape over overhead line conductors, cross arms, switchboard panels and pillars etc.
They are used by Linesman, Utility workers and Electrical Contractors to assist “cover-up” during live works to reduce the risk of brush contact with a potential voltage difference.

Q:What is the industry track record and history of use?

Used by Utilities for decades, the track record and performance of these products is comprehensive. Refined by Linesman themselves over the years has led to a vetting process which ensures the finished product is easy to use, while promoting the highest level of safety standards.

Q:What is the weight of the products?

Because the size and shape of each product is different it is difficult to provide a single answer to this question. Black EPDM rubber ground mats, typically weigh around 6-7 kg per meter square. The lighter weight EPDM and PVC covers typically weight around 2kg per meter square.

Q:Is the colour markings of significance?

The dual layer construction of the Yellow/Grey PVC and Yellow/Blue EPDM rubber is a critical safety feature. In the field, it is often challenging to keep products spotless. It is also impractical to perform high voltage testing prior to every use. For these reasons, promoting the ability of the user, to readily identify any wear and tear in the product becomes vital. If there is a puncture, abrasion or wear mark, the contrasting colours help promote visualisation of this.
