High Quality and Effective ESD Insole Range
OrthoSole are proud to announce that our insoles are now ESD approved with ESD approved footwear, to help keep ESD (electrostatic discharge) to a minimum in your work environment!
Our insoles have been engineered to meet the requirements of IEC 613405-1 ANSI ESD S20.20
‘Protection of electronic devices from electrostatic phenomena’
So when our insoles are used in conjunction with fully compliant ESD footwear, ESD will be kept to a minimum in the workplace.
With anti-static insoles, a combination of rigid and soft foam for protective cushioning and shock-absorption zones to reduce foot fatigue, our range of orthotic insoles are comfortable and lightweight and are ESD approved, to help improve overall fit for users and maintaining an anti-static effectiveness with ESD approved footwear.
So, What Exactly is ESD?
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects caused by contact, an electrical short, or dielectric breakdown.
How Can ESD Be Prevented in the Workplace?
If ESD is a problem in your company, then you can take a number of active steps to protect your equipment and environment from the damaging effects of ESD.
For sensitive electrostatic discharge protected areas, employees may be required to wear anti-static clothing, including sole grounders, conductive shoes, ESD protective overalls, t-shirts, sweatshirts and polo shirts, Hi-Vis jackets and of course – ESD footwear along with OrthoSole ESD approved insoles!
There are specific workbenches design for static controlled areas, with anti-static elements built in so that essential pieces of equipment and components aren’t harmed by ESD.
There are numerous accessories that have been developed to help assist in preventing an ESD event. ESD approved accessories include wrist straps, insulating strips, double data sockets, earth/ground leads.
ESD approved matting is beneficial in many ways, as walking alone can cause static electricity. ESD matting can help to disperse this electricity, helping ESD to flow at a slower rate across the surface which in turn neutralises it.
