3 Common ESD Symbols and What They Mean to You

by Michelle R. on August 13, 2014

How familiar are you with ESD symbols and signage? Not all were created equal, and slight differences can have a big impact in your ESD sensitive environment. Read on, and learn more about the significance of these three commonly used ESD symbols.


ESD Susceptibility
: Characterized by a reaching hand in a triangle with a slash through it, this symbol implies that a component or device is susceptible to the damaging effects of ESD.

 

ESD Protective: This symbol features a reaching hand within a triangle and an arc around the image. It is used to identify equipment that is designed specifically to offer ESD protection.

 

ESD Common Point Ground: Typically yellow and black or black and white, this image resembles a bull’s eye, and is meant to indicate a common point ground as defined by ANSI/ESD-S6.

What’s even better than the cut resistant materials you’ve come to rely on for protection during everyday tasks? Constructed of two or more components, gloves knit with engineered composite yarns provide the highest levels of cut resistance while maintaining maximum dexterity. Typically consisting of a strong, slick textile like Kevlar® combined with a hard material such as steel, the combined characteristics result in a knit that is far superior to those constructed of just a single element.

Lightweight and high performance, engineered fiber cut resistant gloves can be essential to applications ranging from industrial or automotive production to food preparation or even glass, metal and ceramics work. The most versatile cut resistant option available, All-Spec offers a complete range of engineered fiber gloves at better prices every day. Find the perfect pair for your application and save.
