ESD tables are ideal in situations where you must limit and control the amount of electrostatic electricity in a particular area. ESD stands for “electrostatic discharge;” it is the result of static buildup between two objects.

Applications of ESD Tables
Typically, electrostatic charge build-up occurs when two different types of materials rub together. One object will become positively charge while the other is negatively charged which will then inevitably lead to an ESD event if the object is not properly grounded. ESD equipment are important for preventing ESD events, as these events can cause damage to electronic components. The ESD solution has a laminate to provide the static control feature. Some equipment can also be engineered to be chemical and scratch-resistant. Normally, an ESD surface has a high resistance between 1.0 x 109 and 1.0 x 106 ohms. This will not only prevent rapid discharge of electrostatic, which could harm electronic devices, but will also protect the user from being harmed. Common ESD equipment includes ESD tables, chairs, footwear, wrist straps, carts, workstations, and mats. ESD tables are the most universal and commonly used ESD protection items. The tables can be equipped with various additional features, such as drawers, CPU holders, storage containers, and light fixtures. These units typically have an ergonomic design with a modular format for effective productivity.
