This product, as alternative to strap-type products and ESD shoes, provides full coverage with contact points on sole and heel area. Walking voltage generation is <50 V, and point-to-groundable point resistance is <1 x 109 ohms.

Original Press Release:

Desco Introduces New stat-A-REST(TM) Foot Grounder

Canton, MA — Desco has introduced the new stat-A-Rest™ foot grounder.  stat-A-REST™ is a new, innovative ESD footwear product. The product employs a unique static dissipation unit-sole securely affixed to the bottom of the user’s footwear through a lightweight elastomer perimeter attachment system.

stat-A-REST™ provides a superior footwear solution in ESD-sensitive workplaces over alternatives in the market including strap-type products and ESD shoes. The electrical performance of stat-A-Rest™ footwear is excellent, with values in the mid 107 ohms range for operator resistance-to-ground measurements made using the methods called out in ANSI/ESD STM97.1. stat-A-REST™ foot grounders are made in the United States of America.

• Full-Coverage Foot Grounder with Contact Points on Sole and Heel Area

Converts non-ESD footwear to ESD footwear; choice for when handling more sensitive devices (Human Body Model Class 0A)*

• Walking Voltage Generation <50 Volts Tested per ANSI/ESD STM97.2

Easily meets the ANSI/ESD S20.20 < 100 volt peak body voltage requirement for use as an ESD footwear component in personnel grounding footwear / flooring system.

• Point-to-Groundable Point Resistance < 1 x 109 ohms

Meets ANSI/ESD S20.20 required limit tested per ANSI/ESD STM97.1, ESD SP9.2, and ESD TR53

• Tear and Chemical Resistant Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) Material

Increases the service life of foot grounder.

• Non-Marring Material

Will not leave marks on floors (or operator’s shoes); reducing maintenance costs of touching up on floors.

• Conductive 8-Strand Nylon Polyester Grounding Tab

Additional conductive material provides reliable connection with operator’s sweat-layer.

• Made in the United States of America

This item is stocked in Canton, MA

stat-A-REST™ Foot Grounders are available in four sizes:

04597 Small

04594 Medium

04595 Large

04596 XLarge

*Foot grounders must be used with an ESD floor (recommend conductive flooring < 1 x 106 ohms) to create a path-to-ground and minimize charge generation
