ESD Work Shoes | Electric Static Dissipative Footwear
ESD Safe Work shoes, have an electrostatically dissipative conductive shoe sole, popularly known as antistatic shoes (which is not the same, incorrectly). Safety Shoes are classed as ESD safe shoes when the resistance value of the system person-shoe-floor is below 3,5 x 10^7 resp.
35 MOhm according to EN 61340-5-1.
