    Anti Static Wrist Straps

    Anti Static wrist straps, also known as anti static wristbands or ground bracelets are devices used to safely ground the wearer to prevent a build-up of static electricity on their body that can result in electrostatic discharge (ESD). The adjustable bands are woven with carbon or carbon-filled conductive fibres. The one size fits all bands often have a press stud on the strap which attaches to a coiled cord. The other end of the cord is then attached to earth bonding points or ground conductors in the workplace. Wrist-strap cords may be connected to an ESD continuous monitor and can be connected to some ESD safe mats.

    RS offer a selection of high-quality straps for all your bonding and grounding needs.
