Modular Steel ESD Benches

Modular ESD Bench

Robust, practical steel benches that have become the standard style throughout UK manufacturing.
Available as traditional leg frame benches or sturdy cantilever versions.

SSE’s modular steel benches are available with a comprehensive range of accessories to suit electronic and light engineering requirements.

The bench frames are made from grey powder coated steel and are available in a flat packed form for self-assembly, or as fully welded, ready to install, units.

These benches have been specially designed to meet the static control requirements of the electronics industry and are used most frequently as operator work stations.

Standard bench sizes are: 1200mm, 1500mm or 1800mm long x 750mm deep x 840mm high. Extension benches designed to sit at right angles to the main bench are available in lengths of 900mm and 1200mm.

Two choices are available for the bench top surfaces, either NeoStat C2 dissipative rubber or static dissipative laminate. Non ESD worktops can also be supplied.

General Specification:

  • Safe working load (evenly distributed): 250kg
  • Leg at each corner or cantilever version.
  • Height adjustable feet for complete stability.
  • Dissipative laminate or rubber work surface.
  • Bench height: 840mm.
  • Flat pack or fully welded options.
  • Epoxy polyester powder coated grey steel frames.

Leg Frame Benches

Powder coated grey, modular steel tube benches are the workhorse bench style of British industry. Available in flat pack form for self-assembly or as fully welded, ready to install modules.

These benches have been adapted to meet the static control requirements of the electronics industry and are widely used as cost effective and robust units.

Available with tops in three widths (600mm, 750mm, 900mm) and three lengths (1200mm, 1500mm, 1800mm), these benches are a standard 840mm high.

Leg frame extension benches are available with tops in two sizes (900mm x 600mm and 1200mm x 600mm).

The extensions, which have only one leg frame, are fitted permanently to the main bench, either in-line or at right angles. Rear support frames for overhead accessories cannot be fitted to the bench extension units.

Two choices are available for the bench top surfaces, either NeoStat C2 dissipative rubber or static dissipative laminate.

Cantilever Benches

Steel benches with a cantilever construction provide uninterrupted legroom and are ideal where operators are seated carrying out detailed and intricate work.

The bench frames are made from grey powder coated steel and are available in a flat packed form, for self-assembly, or as fully welded, ready to install, units.

These benches have been adapted to meet the static control requirements of the electronics industry and are used most frequently as operator work stations.

Available with tops in three lengths (1200mm, 1500mm, 1800mm) and one width (750mm), these cantilever benches are 840mm high.

Standalone cantilever extension side benches are available in flat packed form and these are designed to sit at right angles to the main bench.

The tops of the side benches are 600mm deep and available in lengths of 900mm and 1200mm. Rear support frames for overhead accessories can be fitted to the side benches.

Two choices are available for the bench top surfaces, either NeoStat C2 dissipative rubber or static dissipative laminate.

Above Bench Accessories

With the simple addition of rear support posts the basic leg frame and cantilever benches can be converted into a highly flexible design carrying an array of above bench accessories. The inherent stability of steel framed benches makes them well suited to take overhead assemblies.

Shelf Units

With the shelf units covered in the same dissipative material as the bench tops these 300mm shelf units provide valuable space for storage or items of equipment.

Lighting/Ioniser Hanging Rail

A horizontal frame mounted from the rear support posts is available to hold overhead lighting units and /or an overhead ioniser.

Back Panels

A variety of above bench back panels is available depending on specific requirements.

Notice boards/pin boards, zinc plated louvered panels, punched panels and a combined louvered/punched panel are all options from the SSE steel bench range.

The back panels are positioned between the two rear support posts.

Rail Mounted Trunking

Rectangular plastic trunking can be fitted to a transverse rail attached to the rear support posts.

The trunking can be supplied with up to six, twin and switched 13 Amp sockets.

RCD trip and data sockets are available if required.

Standard trunking is supplied unwired but pre-wired units are available on request.

Flat Screen Support Arms

Multi directional arms can be attached to the rear posts to support flat screens.

These arms allow the dissipative work surface to remain clear and uncluttered with the wiring running down the centre of the support posts.

Storage Bin Rails

Rails can be positioned between the rear support posts to which a variety of storage bins can be attached; PCB racks, small parts bins and scoop fronted boxes.

Bench Top Accessories

Worktop Service Panel

Similar in style to the rail mounted trunking, the worktop service panels are fitted to the back of benches and can accommodate up to six, twin and switched 13 Amp sockets.

RCD trip and data sockets can be fitted if required.

Standard panels are supplied unwired but pre-wired units are available on request.

Wrist Strap Sockets

All benches are supplied with two wrist strap sockets as standard. These sockets can accept leads with either a 10mm stud or 4mm banana plug.

Earth Grounding Bolts

A standard feature of all steel benches is the earth grounding bolt, positioned to the rear of the dissipative work surface. This bolt will accept a 10mm stud or a 4mm banana plug.

Cable Ports

Cable ports can be fitted to work tops in any position specified. The ports are black with an 80mm diameter and have a push out lid.

Under Bench Accessories

Drawers and Cupboards

There are five options available all with a 420mm x 420mm plan size:

  • Single drawer unit (220mm high)
  • Triple drawer unit (435mm high)
  • Cupboard (435mm high)
  • Tall cupboard (560mm high)
  • Drawer over cupboard unit (560mm high)

All these units are hung from the underside of the benches and the doors and drawers are supplied with locks and keys.

Computer Cradle

A computer cradle can be fitted to either side of the bench and sits neatly beneath the steel frame.

Lower Shelf (Leg frame benches only)

A lower shelf, with the same dissipative covering as the bench top, can be fitted to leg frame benches and is positioned on the two cross frame members.

This shelf, which has a safe working load of 250kg, is ideal for locating large and bulky items which need to be readily accessed but kept clear of the dissipative work top.

The shelf is linked directly to the worktop earth bonding point.

Infill/Modesty Panels (Leg frame benches only)

End infill panels and rear modesty panels are both available for the steel leg frame benches.

The panels are made from powder coated steel and their colour matches the steel framework.

APS is an aesthetically pleasing, anodised aluminium bench system which can be configured to fit almost any space.

The benches can be seamlessly linked making use of shared legs and they can be installed smoothly around corners.

APS offers a flexible and genuinely bespoke bench system for the electronics industry.
