Electrostatic charges occur when insulating materials are rubbed against or separated from each other. The resulting discharges pose a great danger for components and assemblies in electronics. To prevent damage to these sensitive components, it is important to introduce ESD protection measures in the company. Whether ESD clothing, ESD shoes, personal grounding, ESD cleaning or ESD packaging - in the area of ESD protection you will find a huge selection of branded products from ABEBA, ATLAS, SAFEGUARD, WARMBIER, HANS KOLB and FETRA, which guarantee comprehensive protection.

What is ESD?
ESD is the abbreviation for "Electro Static Discharge". This type of voltage breakdown is caused by large potential differences. Probably the best known examples we encounter in everyday life are lightning strikes during storms or when we receive a small electric shock when touching a door handle.
Why is ESD protection so important?
The cause of potential difference is usually charging due to friction. This can lead to dangerous situations, the uncontrolled discharge of the current can lead to the ignition of hazardous substances or make products such as computer chips unusable. Therefore, in production and general work with sensitive components and materials, attention should be paid to appropriate ESD protective clothing. In addition to proper clothing, other ESD protection measures should also be considered for a safe workplace. For example, by laying out special ESD flooring or wearing ESD-capable shoes, maximum safety can be achieved.
Where is ESD protection used?
ESD can occur anywhere, the effect it has on the environment and therefore on products, components and workers is different in each situation. In the electronics industry, electrostatic discharge can cause a lot of damage, whether it's an accident at work or products breaking down. To prevent such events from happening, employees must wear appropriate clothing. This can range from simple ESD gloves to ESD shoes to ESD coats. But a safe workplace is also a must. You can ensure this with ESD chairs, ESD tables, ESD protective walls and other ESD workplace equipment. This way, they can achieve maximum safety for their workers and manufactured products.
In the areas of ESD clothing, ESD shoes, ESD personal grounding, ESD equipment at the workplace, ESD cleaning, ESD packaging and shipping, and ESD storage and transport, we offer you a wide range of products to ensure comprehensive and complete protection.
Equip your workplace according to DIN EN 61340-5-10 and mark the ESD workplaces with an ESD sticker.
