Industrial Seating™ conductive seating insures a safe, static-clear work area.

ESD Features

All IS™ patented conductive seating models are equipped with conductive seat cushions, back cushions, as well as all metal parts and the IS™ patented dual resistance system.

Operator safety is important
Many conductive chairs are used at test benches where operators could receive an electrical shock. Industrial Seating™ uses dual resistors in the vertical gas lift column. These two resistors reduce the possibility of injury in production and test areas.
Complete discharge is critical
Industrial Seating™ pioneered the use of conductive fabric with a conductive backer. Without our patented system, following the path of a static charge on a seat cushion was very easy. It leaves smaller charges on the nonconductive filaments it passes on the surface. As each layer in an IS™ cushion is progresively more conductive, charges pass directly from the fabric to the backer, and then off the cushion.

These fabrics have a higher resistance level surfacce than in the special latex backing material. This direct the static charges through the special fabric to the lower resistance latex backing layer, eliminating static “Echo Charges”.
Industrial Seating™ chairs with polished aluminum bases are equipped with conductive casters. Nylon base models use standard casters and a drag chain for conductivity.
