The uncontrolled release of an electrostatic charge is a potentially lethal hazard. Workforces from welding teams to galley crews must take extreme caution when working with electronic components. While a power surge becomes perceptible at ±3,500 V, 100 V-surges can damage electronic components and be harmful to those who caused the release and to those nearby.
To ensure optimal protection against electrostatic explosions, protective apparel and equipment must comply with EC Directive 89/686/EEC and EN ISO 13688. Apparel designed to protect against electrostatic explosions, specifically, must be breathable, its metal components covered, and its seams reinforced. To ensure the highest level of protection for those who wear what we make, we use static dissipative thread in apparel construction.
