Could Your Shoe Grounds Be Leaving You Vulnerable to ESD?

by Michelle R. on February 3, 2014

What’s better – grounders for one shoe or two? Because body voltage is usually measured in a standing position – with two feet on the ground – it’s easy to assume you’re safe with just one.  Keep in mind, however, that a shoe grounding device protects against static by creating a path to ground, one that is maintained only when the grounder is in contact with an ESD-safe floor mat. If you’re wearing only one shoe ground, you’ll lose contact each time your foot leaves the floor – leaving your workspace and components susceptible to damage.

Why take the risk? Your best bet for full protection is to opt for dual grounders. We carry a selection of full sole shoe grounds, heel grounds and toe grounds from top brands like Desco, 3M and Static Solutions. Stock up and save on these personal grounding essentials with All-Spec.
