The typical laboratory is home to an extraordinarily diverse and heterogeneous brew of different chemicals and substances, some of which are quite reactive. With all of these reactions going on, electrons are going to be flying around and changing energy levels, and charges — both positive and negative, and of varying intensities — will be moving around and swapping spaces.
In an environment like that, the buildup of static electricity is an ever-present concern. Under everyday conditions, a little bit of static electricity is virtually never cause for any serious concern. But when sensitive equipment and volatile chemicals surround you, that story can be rather different. Indeed, mitigating electrostatic discharges is often one of the principal safety goals in most labs.
It is this important goal thatRDM Industrial Products’ static control furnitureis designed to help meet your needs. All of our factory-direct lab furniture is proudly manufactured in the USA, but our anti-static furnishings number among some of our very proudest accomplishments.
Here’s a bit of important information about our anti-static furnishings, why they are so critical to so many workplaces and how it is that they work their magic.
