Applications include permanent insulation to prevent danger from shock to persons employed in the generation, transformation, distribution or use of electrical energy. Switchboard rubber safety matting is the recommended safety floor covering for switchboards, sub-stations, transformers, generators and electrical work benches.
Rubber insulating shrouding

It is supplied as transparent or orange neoprene insulating shrouding in 1mm and 1.6mm thickness.

Insulating rubber gloves
Boddingtons Electrical provides fully insulating electrical rubber gloves, each test stamped for working voltages ranging from 500V to 36,000V, and manufactured to EN60903.
Leather overgloves are worn over the insulating rubber gloves to protect against mechanical hazards and electrical arcing. Cotton undergloves give added comfort in warm and humid conditions, and are worn as a liner in the electrical rubber gloves.
The EN60903 and IEC903 standards advise visual inspection by inflation of the electrical rubber glove in order to detect air leaks. This can be carried out by the pneumatic rubber glove tester. We can also electrically re-test these rubber HV gloves to the EN60903 standard.
