For Cathodic Protection, Electrical Grounding and Safety Applications
Platt offers preformed grounding mats. Spiral and rectangular designs are generally standard for grounding mats. These are shown in Figures 3, 4 and 5. PlattMatt™ is a pre-formed grounding/safety mat made from PlattlineTM II Standard.
PlattMatt™ is a product line developed by The Platt Brothers & Company over the past twenty years for use in cathodic protection, electrical grounding and safety applications. PlattMatt™ is made from Plattline™ that has been pre-formed into inventoried sizes of 6′ x 6′ or 8′ x 8′ grounding/safety mats. We can also custom fit your Mat requirement having done many sizes starting with the minimum 6′ x 6′ size up to 13.5′ x 13.5′ sized Mats. Plattline™ zinc ribbon has no equal in the industry. It is manufactured using a unique process that ensures durability and longevity in the field.
PlattMatt™ is used below above ground appurtenances and is attached to the pipeline and general grounding system to keep workers and technicians safe as they move around portions of the pipeline (valves, pipes, rectifiers, risers, test stations, etc.) that are brought above ground. Single or multiple PlattMatts™ can be used depending on the size of the area.
Other products presently in use require fabrication in the field and as a result, are labor intensive to install. Pre-formed PlattMatt™ ships with necessary attachments, speeds the construction process and saves money, by dramatically reducing installation time.
PlattMatt™, manufactured exclusively by The Platt Brothers and Company, sets the world standard for grounding and safety protection.
