Question We currently have weak ESD awareness withing our facility. I would like to increase this and give knowledge about potential damage to ESD equipment. I was curious to know what type of damage if any is done to ESD heel straps when worn outdoors in the elements in a concrete/gravel environment. Do you have any technical information as to what actually occurs to the the product and how it is affected? I feel it must decrease the life span. Thank you. - Anonymous, Fletcher, OH
Answer Yes, walking on gravel, etc. will increase the wear on Foot Grounders. However, if the Foot Grounders are being tested ensuring a proper path-to-ground, they will still be effective in removing charges from a person on ESD protected flooring.
