Uncontrolled discharge of electrostatic potentials – ESD – is a major concern for manufacturers and assemblers of electronic products. Effective, reliable ESD control can generate significant cost savings.
Work Matta ESD™ electrical safety mats are designed to safely dissipate or neutralise electrostatic charges without the need for ESD wristbands or footwear. All the while providing industry leading ergonomic support.

What is ESD?
Static electricity is created when two objects touch or slide against each other, then separate, resulting in the transfer o electrons. Feet or furniture contacting and leaving the floor is a common cause in the Workplace. The resulting imbalance of electrons is called an electro static charge which remains latent on an object until it can discharge to another object of opposite polarity – creating an ESD event.
Why all the fuss with ESD events?
An ESD event, often too small to be detected by a human, can damage or even destroy sensitive electronic components. ESD damage can be categorised in two ways: (i) a catastrophic failure resulting in the immediate destruction of an item; or (ii) a latent defect resulting in a reduced life-expectancy of an item. Both types of damage can have serious financial impacts through increased quality-control failure rates for catastrophic events, and consumer poduct warranty claims for latent defects.
Can I used Work Matta ESD tiles with other non ESD Work Matta products?
Absolutely. The Arrow Lock lug system is common across all Work Matta™ Comfort, Grit and ESD tiles, and are all interchangeable.
