Antistatic Mats and other Static-controlling tools: For Home, Office and Hobbyists (page 2)





...we continue from page 1 with more recommendations for static-controlling products for home, office, computer and electronics. This time we focus on antistatic mats...

The mats used for protection from electricity come under three basic classifications: conductive, antistatic, and non-conductive. They are used in combination with proper grounding. Antistatic mats (and matting), which are dissipative, have higher resistance to electricity and the current passes through at low speed. This helps to protect sensitive devices along with assuring the safety of the workmen. There are floor mats and tabletop mats.

Antistatic mats, as shown below, are manufactured from different materials such as stainless-steel fibers and vinyl. They're available in various sizes, and colors to suit the d├ęcor and have anti-fatigue and slip resistant properties. Some are light duty mats meant for people to stand on or to place equipments. For applications like using under chairs and movement of laden carts, heavy-duty mats are required.

While selecting antistatic mats, it's important to consider the rate at which static electricity is to be discharged. Sudden dissipation could cause damage to some equipment. This is an area where expert advice is required.

Antistatic mats can be ordered online (see below). Most manufacturers provide guidance to choose the appropriate type.
