Antistatic Workwear Solutions

Anti static workwear is essential in many industries and is a core component in ensuring your staff remain safe. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can be lethal, and there are more than fifty major incidents per year in the UK caused by static electricity.

Sudden electrostatic discharge can be dangerous and costly, causing fire, explosion, injury, or death. To eliminate and control the static build-up, workers must use anti static workwear clothing because non-anti static workwear can cause a sudden spark.

ESD sensitive devices can experience a damaging discharge if touched by a person, even if that person is properly grounded. Increasing the electrical path’s contact resistance is one way to control the speed of the discharge. A good way to accomplish this is by wearing static dissipative clothes and gloves.

Our garments and gloves have been specially designed to be comfortable for the user and effective in reducing the damage caused by static generation. Our garments are light-weight and comfortable to wear and are available in a wide range of sizes. You can find ESD lab coats, ESD lab jackets, anti-static polo shirts, anti-static t-shirts, ESD fleeces and more in our clothing range. Custom logos and embroidery can be manufactured on request.

We also supply different sizes of ESD gloves, coated tip gloves, plain gloves, and non-slip surface gloves to suit your preference and requirements.

Safety Measures

Static electricity is produced in industrial facilities and naturally in the environment. It occurs when there are chemical or physical changes, causing a build-up that can result in a spark,

Your employees should wear anti static workwear and ESD shoes if they work in hazardous environments, such as refineries. These garments should also be worn in any industry that deals with petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, ammunition, flammable liquids, gas, fuel vapour, coal dust, or electrical components.

Whether your team works with electricity directly or indirectly, friction between surfaces and standard clothing causes an accumulation of static electricity. This itself is enough to create a spark or cause static shock, so safety measures such as wearing anti static workwear are vital.

The correct safety clothing is absolutely essential for people working with objects, machinery, or equipment that can’t be disconnected from the electricity source. ESD garments work by dispersing electrical charges into the ground, keeping the worker and your assets safe.

In explosive atmospheres, your safety measures should also include removing all sources of potential ignition. In extremely sensitive environments, anti static workwear can also include the use of ESD gloves. 

Importance of ESD Clothes & Gloves

Clothing and glove materials are significant factors to consider when selecting what to wear in your Electrostatic Protected Area (EPA). If your clothes or gloves are manufactured from synthetic fibres then they can generate great amounts of static charge and could potentially cause damage. However, if the fabric is an insulator it can cause catastrophic results when in contact with static-sensitive components; this is because an isolated charged insulator cannot be grounded. When working with ESD sensitive equipment, you should also consider your sleeves and waist since they can produce several thousand volts (a significant electric field to expose nearby conductors) that may induce charges on nearby isolated conductors.

Our antistatic workwear, on the other hand, is specifically designed to prevent damage to sensitive electronic components that are being assembled or packaged within a protected area. Our antistatic workwear is manufactured from a conductive yarn to ensure they eliminate static and prevent the effects of electrostatic charges being built up from non-ESD workwear.
