Cantilever ESD Bench
Our range of bespoke cantilever ESD benches are ideal when it comes to making sure that your staff are safe from the dangers of electrostatic discharge, investing in ESD products (such as our range of ESD benches) is absolutely essential. Unfortunately, though, too many businesses simply do not realise the importance of making these investments. Luckily, there are a number of different benefits associated with purchasing an ESD bench that help to make it clear why you may want to add these to your business’ workplace.
What Are ESD Benches?
ESD benches, as the name would imply, are specially designed benches that can help to shield your workers—and surrounding equipment and facilities—from the dangers associated with electrostatic discharge as long as they are grounded to earth. They can be incredibly useful for people to use if they work in industries which rely heavily upon the use of electrical equipment. But what actually makes an electronics workbench different to a standard workbench?
The primary difference between an ESD bench and a generic bench is in regards to the effects that an ESD bench has when it comes into contact with an electrostatic discharge. ESD benches are finished with materials that allow it to act as a static dissipator, thereby grounding out the electrical discharge so that no, or less, harm is done to the worker. This will also help to prevent damage occurring to surrounding facilities and equipment, too, which may help to prevent the risk of fires and the like. However, if you are also looking to purchase a standard workbench, then you have also come to the right place. We at Anti-Static ESD not only provide bespoke UK manufactured ESD benches, but we also sell bespoke standard benches. Simply contact us for more information.
Why Your Business Needs an ESD Bench
ESD benches can offer a huge number of benefits for your business, and so it is important that you understand these. Indeed, the benefits that ESD benches can offer can be highly useful for helping to prevent someone from getting injured by an electrostatic discharge or the subsequent effects, such as an electrical fire. But why does your business need anti static benches for its workers?
Electrostatic workbenches are useful, thanks to the way in which they work. Equipment which can be considered to be high risk can be used on an ESD bench, and so this can help to negate the effects before they cause any damage. Moreover, ESD benches are also useful for implementation as part of an ESD protected area, in combination with other types of anti static equipment. There are a huge number of different options on the market, from ESD clothing and ESD mats to anti static bags; these can all be used to almost completely protect your workers from electrostatic discharge.
Why Choose Our Cantilever ESD Benches?
Our unique cantilever ESD benches are designed to ensure that your workers are not hindered by using anti static products. Made with a sturdy and durable design and with both rubber and laminate worktops available, these are sure to meet your requirements. They can also be customised in size based on your needs, with our standard height being 870mm; the ideal ratio of legroom and work space, on average. So, why put your workers at risk; choose our specialist bespoke cantilever ESD benches with lower bench and upper bench accessories for your team today!
ESD Electronics Bench – Why You Need Them!
Investing in the highest quality ESD electronics benches is essential. When it comes to keeping your workers safe and protected, having a dedicated electronics bench could prove to be pivotal in keeping your property protected from the dangers of electrostatic shock.
But why is this? What are ESD tables and why should your business invest in an ESD table to protect its workers and equipment?
What are ESD Electronics Benches?
First of all, it’s important that we understand what an ESD electronics bench (sometimes referred to as an ESD table) is and what they are used for. As you might have guessed, an ESD electronics bench is a dedicated work surface which is suitable for using with electrically charged items.
Because the electronics bench itself is able to ground out static charges, any stray static charge won’t be transferred to your workers or surrounding equipment; instead, it will be earthed out immediately. This is highly important, because electrostatic discharge can be a real problem if you don’t provide protection against it for your workers and equipment.
Do I Need an ESD Table?
ESD tables are commonplace within an ESD protected area. This is due to the additional protection that they can provide for workers and surrounding equipment. However, some ESD protected areas make do without having an ESD table – though not an ideal solution, this might be still afford you some degree of protection assuming the rest of the ESD protected area is kitted out with static dissipative products. The best materials for a non-ESD table are wood and metal as these do not generate unlike materials such as plastic.
For maximum safety for your company’s workers and equipment, though, having an ESD table is a necessity. Why would you compromise on safety by providing a standard workbench, after all? ESD electronics benches are designed to ground out any stray static charges which could prove the difference between everyone staying safe and happy – and, well, not.
How ESD Tables Work
So, we’ve clarified that your ESD protected area really ought to have an ESD table for maximum safety.
But how do specially made ESD tables work, anyway? What is it that makes an electronics workbench more effective at providing protection than a non-insulating material bench such as wood?
This is a pretty normal question for a person to have; after all, you might think that a material such as wood is the ideal solution for working with electronic components. However, this thinking isn’t quite right; while wood will offer some degree of protection, it is far from the perfect solution.
The difference between an electronics workbench and a generic workbench is the inclusion of static dissipative materials which should then be grounded to earth. Static dissipative materials are designed specifically to help you deal with static charges, unlike a wooden workbench which is merely made to offer somewhere upon which to rest.
The Types of Electronics Workbench
There are two primary types of electronics workbench that you should be aware of. These differ in the materials and level of surface resistivity that they can provide; however, both are effective solutions for your static dissipative needs. For more information on how each could be right for you, feel free to contact a member of our team to learn more!
- Elimistat® ESD Rubber Worktop – The Elimistat® ESD rubber worktop based electronics workbenches are made with a dual-layered surface. This surface is made from rubber and works thanks to the dissipative uppermost layer and the conductive bottom layer. Thanks to this design, static is grounded out safely and effectively, thereby reducing the risks of electrostatic discharges causing damage extensively! They are able to provide a surface resistivity of between 105 and 109 ohms.
- Elimistat® ESD Laminate Worktop – unlike ESD rubber worktop workbenches, which are made using static dissipative dual-layered rubber materials, a laminate static electronics workbench is instead made with static dissipative plastic laminate materials. It provides a similar level of protection against electrostatic discharges in comparison to the ESD rubber worktop benches. The properties the bench tops can provide are between 106 and 108 ohms.
Which Electronics Workbench is Right for my Needs?
If you think that your business could benefit from investing in an electronics workbench then there are a few things that you should consider. However, choosing does not need to be too difficult – and remember, if you need any further assistance, our team are on hand to help too.
- Elimistat® ESD Rubber Worktop benches are suitable for many applications, and they provide a excellent level of static resistivity of between 105 and 109 ohms.
- Elimistat® ESD Laminate Worktop workbenches are better for surfaces which works with extreme heat, soldering, or chemicals as the plastic is more resistant to all of these. These tops also provide an excellent level of static resistivity of between 105 and 109 ohms.
