The Conductive Diamond Sponge will prevent damage to sensitive equipment. It will also help to prevent fires caused by flammable chemicals and liquids. The durable vinyl surface reduces static electricity from workers preventing damage to sensitive electronic equipment and systems making for great commercial anti static mats.
The following decription gives you a brief overview of the difference between Non-Conductive matting and Conductive matting or Static Dissipative matting as it is sometimes called.
Conductive matting is designed to protect sensitive equipment by draining static electricity from workers before they touch susceptible chemicals and equipment. This is critical as one discharge could destroy a computer or cause a fire in the case of flammable chemicals or liquids.
As personnel can quickly gather static electricity when walking or rolling on a chair with castors, we offer both Electrically Conductive and Static Dissipative matting to eliminate these harmful hazards.
Electrically Conductive mats disperse static electricity quicker than Static Dissipative mats, so generally Electrically Conductive matting is used around very sensitive components.
All Conductive and Dissipative mats should be grounded to be effective.
Non-conductive matting is designed to insulate workers, protecting them from deadly shocks generated by high voltage equipment.
These mats are tested and proven to have high dielectric strength. However, the maximum recommended voltage exposure rating is much less to provide a large margin of safety to workers.
This is important as Switchboard Matting is a true safety mat, designed to save people’s lives.
