For the record ESD-Safe Conductive Fabric Chairs are NOT equal to "anti static chairs". All ESD safe ESD chairs on our shop, comply 100% with the international ESD standard IEC / EN 61340.
Do you actually need ESD-chairs?
Yes you do! When standing up from a non-conductive chair significant electric charges are generated via the contacted sur-faces of the chair – common values are 3000 … 5000 volt.
This voltage can not be grounded as the case may be and the filed connected to voltages is in danger of electrostatic induction.
If the ESD chair is used as primary grounding system, the maximum resistance to the mass of the person on the chair and the flooring system does not amount more than 3.5 x 10^7 Ohm or electric charges should not reach more than 100 volt. Important: A permanent contact between all elements of the system including person, chair and ESD flooring surface has to be realized!
ESD Workstations are different. There are flexible and fixed ESD-workstations.
Our ESD chairs were developed by engineers specialized in ergonomic advice and workplace design. Development and production takes place in own factories. Industrial ESD Seatings can professionally be modified to suit your individual requirements, available in numerous designs, fabrics and colours.
ESD Workplaces can be personal or flexible and should be adjusted (Small, Average or Large) according to the posture of your ESD-employee, this in order to prevent getting your ESD staff suffer from back problems, muscle tension and thus operate less efficiently and even stay home sick.
Static Dissipative (ESD) Chair are conforming to European Standard EN 61340-5-1:2001 and suitable for use in static controlled environments. Our ESD chairs are specifically designed and manufactured for use in the electrical and electronics industry. This range of conductive-chairs prevents the build up of static electricity by dissipating it directly to earth, making them highly safety focused.
