Floor, Glove and Footwear Test Kit (static measuring options available)

Suitable for testing flooring resistance and personnel glove and footwear resistance, the Chilworth Technology Floor, Glove and Footwear Test Kit enables testing to BS5958 guidelines, CENELEC CLC/TR 50404 and IEC 61340-4-5.

Flooring material and associated coatings can contribute to a build-up of electrostatic charge as a result of the motion of people, trolleys, pallet and packaging lifting devices and general furniture; for example workbenches, chairs etc. Abrupt discharge of the static charges can cause discomfort to personnel and, in extreme cases, ignition of process products if the ignition energy of the electrostatic spark discharge is above the minimum ignition energy of the product. It is possible, in such cases for products, when present in the atmosphere in the form of a dust layer or dust cloud, to ignite.

Other areas where electrostatic build-up is of concern is electronic equipment where it is possible for malfunctions to arise due to electrostatic spark discharge. It is clear that, not only is flooring resistance important, but also resistance of personnel, particularly with respect to gloves and footwear as well as garments being worn.
