Comfort and safety are both very important factors in any workplace. But when a workplace handles high-risk machinery, hazardous chemicals and sharp tools, both of these factors become even more of a priority.
ESD chairs are a way of providing comfort for people who work in static controlled environments, or the electric industry whilst also keeping them and their equipment safe too.
Regular chairs or stools (that are non-conductive) create opportunities for user error, even when using ESD Flooring such as when a user rests their feet on something besides the floor such as a separate footrest or stool rail.
An ESD chair dissipates static potential when sitting down, standing up, or in the chance that feet separate from the floor until both the operator and the chair share the same charge. So in essence, ESD chairs disperse any static potential that it receives from the operator or the environment and balances out the potential until both the operator and the chair share the same charge.
ESD chairs have a wide range of different benefits, and these will differ depending on the type of ESD chair you choose.
All ESD chairs have been designed to protect a person from electrostatic discharge problems, and use non-conductive materials, static-free fabric and static-free casters in their construction. They also provide maximum ergonomic support for sitting or standing workers and ensure product reliability and worker productivity.
Some types of ESD chairs may have specially moulded foam or a synchro mechanism to provide extra comfort, whilst also minimising environmental pollutants in cleanroom applications.
We have a range of different ESD chairs here at First Mats, so you are sure to find the perfect match for your workplace.
If you are on the hunt for something that can provide maximum support and comfort whilst you work, then take a look at our ESD Ergonomic Polyurethane Industrial Chair. It prevents the build-up of potentially damaging static electricity by dissipating it directly into the ground, whilst also having a fully adjustable back and a tilting headrest.
Or if you want something to make working at a height a little more comfortable, our High ESD Chair for Industrial Use with Footrest may be the best option. Aside from being designed specifically for use in sites involved in the manufacture or repair of electronic components, it features a five-star base with a foot ring for maximum comfort.
