Anti-Static MatsPosted on: May 18th, 2010 by Charles Pruett
Not all anti-fatigue mats are created equal. Â You certainly wouldnâ€™t purchase anti-static mats for use in an industrial or commercial environment where thereâ€™s an inherently wet characteristic, now would you?Â Well, of course not. Â But isnâ€™t it great there are anti-fatigue mats that are also anti-static for when you work in an environment with sensitive, electronic equipment or highly combustible chemicals?
We humans are electric by nature.Â Our bodies produce static currents easily just by walking about, or even rolling across the floor on caster wheels in a chair.Â If we were to touch sensitive equipment such as computers with microchips, or materials or chemicals easily ignited by the tiniest of sparks, it could result in catastrophe.Â Conductive anti-static mats that use a grounding cord are just the thing for such environments.
