A low gas lift has a seat height range of from 440 – 580 mm
A medium gas lift has a seat height of from 500 – 750 mm
A high gas lift has a seat height of from 560 – 850 mm.
All ESD chairs made and supplied by ASHCO have been checked and pass the relevant European Standard EN 61340 – 5 – 1; 2001(ESD protective item requirements).
The cloth used is “Hi –Tech” static dissipative material and has a resistance to a ground point that does not exceed 10¹º.OHM.
The plastic seat back cover is static dissipative and together with the seat and backrest is earthed to the chassis mechanism.
The chassis is connected to the chromed gas lift, this fits into the polished alloy base and all is grounded via the conductive castors or glides, whichever is fitted.
The chairs are checked using a OHM – STAT MEGOHMMETER.
The test is carried out by placing a 5 kilo weight on the chair seat. This weight is connected to the test box and another lead from the test box is connected to a steel plate placed under one of the castors ( or glide) . A charge is then passed through the chair to determine resistance to ground.
The foot ring displayed on the high gas lift chairs is for illustration purposes only and is sold as a separate item.
