Why ESD Lab Chairs?

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) is a growing problem for laboratories and the science industry. In the age of technology, we require more sophisticated electronics. However, the electrostatic shock from these pieces of equipment can be costly and dangerous in a laboratory setting. Static discharge can ignite nearby flammables and vapors in labs. This can damage electronic components.

Your lab workers need a comfortable, adjustable, and ergonomic work chair that helps them be more productive throughout the day. However, what many people don’t know is that the act of sitting and moving within a lab chair can create a static charge strong enough to cause damage and harm in the workplace. ESD lab chairs can solve this problem. 

Some areas of the lab require protection from static provided by ESD laboratory chairs. Workers dealing with delicate electronic circuitry or areas that require a clean environment will benefit from these chairs.

Features of ESD Chairs

ESD chairs are made of fabric interwoven with conductive fibers that create a path from where your body touches the chair to the ground, allowing electrostatic charges to dissipate safely.

Aside from this, they are also designed with ergonomic features:

  • Adjustable backrests
  • Robust metal frames
  • Height adjustments
  • Ergonomic seating

Benefits of ESD Chairs

Protection from Electrostatic Discharge

Electrostatic discharge can be dangerous and destructive in the workplace. If it ignites nearby chemicals, the effects can be devastating, causing costly damages and harm to workers nearby.

These chairs are non-conductive and static-free, which means friction caused by sitting and moving around in the chair cannot cause static discharge. 

Improved Workplace Ergonomics

Ergonomic seating provides your workers with improved health. Many workers experience pain at their workstations because of their posture and seating positions that the chairs place their bodies in for several hours.

Lower back pain is one of the most common reasons that people miss work. However, providing your employees with ergonomic seating, you can reduce the effects of or prevent back pain. An ESD lab chair conforms to each worker’s particular body shape, supports the spine, and keeps tissues and joints in a neutral position. 

Promotes Productivity 

ESD chairs offer simple peace of mind so that workers know they are safe from static discharge and the possible harm that comes from it. This allows them to focus on their work instead of the potential for danger.

With better worker health through ergonomics, you’ll also be promoting productivity. By reducing stress and distractions, it’s easier to focus on the tasks at hand. Focused employees without back and neck pain will be better at their jobs, and you can expect that they’ll take less sick days due to pain. 

Reduction of Potential Workers Compensation Claims

On the business end of things, by reducing work-related injuries and strains and the protection for workplace dangers, you’ll reduce your chance of worker’s compensation claims, which can affect your business.
