BIMOS ESD Labster 3 Chair with glides & footring



Designed for ESD (electrostatic discharge) protected laboratory areas, the ESD Labster 3 chair from Bimos in Germany meets the tough requirements of ESD EN 61340-5-1, yet provides ergonomic comfort for long term sitting.

ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) Labster is the world’s first pure laboratory chair that defines the new face of ESD production work.

Bimos ESD chairs fulfil the requirements of the EN 61340-5-1 standard for use in ESD protected areas (EPAs). By choosing the best possible materials and joining technologies, bimos chairs ensure that electrostatic charges can be safely eliminated. Typical discharge resistance is 106 Ω.

  • Steel components with conductive coating
  • Volume conductive plastics - The plastic is coated with carbon particles to make it conductive
  • Fully integrated system - meets ESD standard DIN EN 61340-5-1
  • 5 volume conductive castors / glides - By adding carbon fiber structures, the castors / glides become conductive
  • Conductive upholsteries - The upholsteries are equipped with a special conductive tissue containing finest woven metallic threads.

ESD Labster has been specially developed for laboratory requirements. Labster does not have any corners or edges. This is down to the innovative, seamless design concept, which means that even the mechanisms are tucked away behind a washable soft cover. As a result, there are no gaps or seams for micro-organisms to make their home. All the surfaces can be quickly and thoroughly cleaned. Labster is practically emission-free and complies with the highest air purity classes. It is even suitable for use in clean room conditions. Labster sets new hygiene standards for seating in laboratories as the world‘s first real laboratory chair.

And far as ergonomic requirements are concerned, Labster leaves nothing to be desired. For example, the innovative auto-motion technology ensures that the correct angle is constantly maintained between the user’s back and thigh, regardless of the type of work being done.

Thanks to the compact design and ideal adaptation to the spatial conditions in the laboratory, users profit from maximum mobility and an extension of their range of action.

Labster also has a novel, closed plastic starbase whose diameter is smaller than that of normal bases. This makes efficient use of narrow corridors and confined spaces. Labster combines all of these advantages with a well-balanced and beautiful shape. Its harmonious lines do justice to the modern atmosphere of the “laboratory“ workplace. Labster makes the existing working area for your employees, safer, larger and more attractive.

Reliable electrostatic discharge protection for electronic workstations

ESD (Electro Static Discharge) refers to the electrostatic discharge of charged objects or people.
Electrostatic discharge can result in damage to microelectronics components. This is because of the minute scale involved which means that the energy from a static discharge has the same impact on a semiconductor as a lightning strike would on a tree.

ESD chairs play a crucial role when it comes to ensuring reliable ESD protective measures for electronic workstations.

ESD protection is regulated by European standard EN 61340, which is designed to help users select appropriate protective measures. It stipulates the following in respect of workplace chairs: “The resistance to the point of contact with the floor of any parts of the seat that could come into contact with the user’s body during standard use must be <1010 Ω.” (Extract from standard EN 61340-5-1)

Consistently exceeding the standard

bimos ESD chairs meet the requirements of standard EN 61340-5-1 as far as their use in EPAs (ESD Protected Areas) is concerned. However, the demands that actually apply in practice
are often more stringent even than this. This is because the increasing miniaturisation of electronics components is making them more susceptible to the problem of electrostatic discharge. The most effective way of dealing with this issue is either to prevent charges from occurring in the first place or
to ensure that any undesirable charges are safely discharged.

Thanks to the optimum choice of materials and connection technology used, bimos chairs reliably prevent the build-up of electrostatic charges. In addition, the chairs are designed to
direct any charges that the user may be carrying safely down to the conductive base as soon as he or she sits down. Thus, bimos ESD chairs offer a fully integrated system of protection.
