"Our Name Says It All"
For more than 25 years, the Voltgard division of Saf-T-Gard has earned a reputation for superior safety products and services for the electrical utilities, telecommunications and electrical contractor markets.

As a leading manufacturer and distributor of rubber insulating products, arc flash safety clothing and kits, grounding equipment and testing services, Voltgard is dedicated to serving industries where worker safety and protection from electrical current are critically important.

 

THE VOLTGARD TEST LAB
Voltgard started as a small test lab in 1983, supplying testing of gloves and blankets for Wisconsin Bell. Over the last 25 years, we have grown to become the largest independent testing facility in the US, with customers including electric utilities, electrical contractors, telephone and telecommunications companies, cable television operators and industrial facilities.

The Voltgard Test Labs are the off-site lab for numerous utilities, telecom companies, contractors, municipalities and industrial facilities nationwide. OSHA workplace rules make the use of rubber insulating equipment mandatory, even when the smallest potential of contact with low or high voltage exists. These rubber goods must be periodically tested to ensure the products maintain their integrity when exposed to a full range of voltages.

We offer full service testing and re-certification of rubber gloves, sleeves, blankets, line hose, hot sticks, hoods and jumper cables. Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for the complete testing of these products, including washing, visual inspecting and electrical testing. All rubber protective equipment tested by the Voltgard Test Labs undergoes this rigorous sequence to ensure that your employees are always using safe equipment.
