The Voltgard® Test Lab
Saf-T-Gard’s Voltgard® Test Lab is the largest, independent, NAIL4PET-accredited test lab in the world.
As a leading manufacturer and distributor of rubber insulating products, arc flash safety clothing and kits, grounding equipment and testing services, Saf-T-Gard is dedicated to serving industries where worker safety and protection from electrical current are critically important. Consequently, Saf-T-Gard founded the Voltgard Test Lab in 1983 to help develop the electrical testing and utility business by supplying testing of gloves and blankets for Wisconsin Bell. Today, more than 30 years later, the Voltgard Test Lab serves thousands of customers in nearly every industry, including electric utilities, electrical contractors, telephone and telecommunications companies, cable television operators and industrial facilities. However, electrical safety awareness and compliance is not only just for contractors and utilities any longer. In reality, almost every single facility has a need for electrical safety - whether the company is a larger facility with building engineers overseeing distribution, or a smaller facility with maintenance staff working around floor or wall sockets. There is quite a large number of possible end-users. As such, awareness is paramount. Not only about the requirements for use, but also about the requirements for in-service inspection and testing of electrical protective equipment.
The Voltgard Test Lab acts as the off-site lab for numerous utilities, telecom companies, contractors, municipalities and industrial facilities nationwide by providing full-service testing and recertification of rubber gloves, sleeves, blankets, line hose, covers, dielectric footwear, jumper cables, grounding sets, plastic guards, hot sticks, matting, hoods and insulating hand tools.
The Voltgard facility is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for the complete testing of these products, including washing, visual inspecting, and electrical testing – all to applicable ASTM standards. All rubber protective equipment tested by the Voltgard Test Lab undergoes this rigorous sequence to ensure that your employees are always using safe equipment.
The Saf-T-Gard and Voltgard team has more than 100 combined years of safety expertise, focusing on industrial and electrical safety. Our team includes ASTM Voting Members, OSHA 30-hour trained safety professionals, Qualified Safety Sales Professionals (QSSP) and NFPA 70E trained safety professionals. The expertise and experience of our team can be an extension of your team when you partner with Saf-T-Gard on your company’s safety program.
