ESD (Electro Static Discharge) refers to the electrostatic discharge of charged objects or people. Electrostatic discharge can result in damage to microelectronics components.

ESD chairs play a crucial role when it comes to ensuring reliable ESD protective measures for electronic workstations. ESD protection is regulated by European standard EN 61340, which is designed to help users select appropriate protective measures. It stipulates the following in respect of workplace chairs: “The resistance to the point of contact with the floor of any parts of the seat that could come into contact with the user’s body during standard use must be <109 Ω.” (Extract from standard EN 61340-5-1).
