Mera ESD

Designer: Jörg Bernauer

The Mera ESD task chair (mer98 and mer98k) meets ESD protection requirements. It is suitable for use in electrostatically protected areas (EPA) as specified by DIN EN 61340-5-1 VDE 0300-5-1:2017-07. The construction and materials used for the Mera ESD (mer98 and mer98k) conduct electrostatic charges through the upholstery, armrests and back via the mechanism, gas spring and star base down to the ground.

  • Conductive upholstery fabric in four colours or black synthetic leather
  • Backrest shell with special conductive paint
  • Armrests made from special plastic and armrest tops with special paint finish
  • Elastic, conductive connection bands with silver content
  • Modified lift column
  • EPA suitability label
  • Star base and castors are conductive

Shocking - but don`t let your work suffer!

You know what it’s like: that sudden jolt of electricity through your hand when you touch something metal. This happens when your body becomes statically charged by friction, for example when you walk on a carpet, and then rapidly discharges.

This abrupt electrostatic discharge – ESD for short – is potentially dangerous. For instance it can damage sensitive electronic components that are being manufactured or processed. The solution: the Mera ESD office chair model (mer98 and mer98k).

Height-adjustable armrest
Adjustable in height by 10 cm, scaled.
The ISO 10993 is an ISO standard series for the biological evaluation of medical devices.
Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany
This design award from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology was presented for leading international achievements from the field of product design for the first time in 1969, when it went by the name of "Bundespreis Gute Form". Since 2006, the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany has been awarded annually for outstanding achievements in the areas of product and communication design and for a selected design personality.
iF DESIGN AWARD
The iF label is recognised worldwide as a quality mark for excellent design.
Lumbar support
Lumbar support, optional. Provides additional support for the lumbar region.
Point-synchronised mechanism
Constant contact with the pelvis during the entire movement. No "shirtdragging" effect.
An abradant and a fabric are subjected to a rubbing motion using the Martindale method. Abrasion resistance is stated in rub cycles. Rub cycles are used as a unit, like grams or centimetres. The fabric is more durable the higher the number of cycles.
red dot design award
The red dot design award is an international design competition that is staged annually, breaking down into the categories of product design and communication design.
Intervertebral discs
An intervertebral disc is a flexible link consisting of fibrocartilage between the vertebrae.
3D arm supports
The armrest top is adjustable by 5 cm in depth and by approx. 3 cm in width without tools. The armrest top is made from soft TPU foam with a pleasant soft feel that is gentle to the skin.
Quality Office
The Quality Office guideline defines quality standards for office furnishings in accordance with the latest ergonomic findings.
Counter chair
Counter chairs are intended specifically for use at checkouts, at counters and reception desks in the retail and wholesale sectors, airports, info points, hotels hospitals and banks.
Footprint
Targets for the sustainability and environmental compatibility of the products are defined in the product development process and the ecological footprint requirements are stipulated as part of the quality assessment. The ecological footprint includes both the recycling rate and an assessment of the energy input.
The American LEED® quality mark (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most broadly established certificate on the international market.
DLX® (Duo-Latex) mesh. Breathable 2-ply technology featuring flexible latex fabric for optimum pressure distribution in the seat and back avoids pressure points and promotes circulation.
The Dutch NPR standard (= Nederlandse Praktijk Richtlijn) defines special office chair dimensions for particularly short and tall people.
GS
Klöber office swivel chairs bear the “GS” (safety-approved) seal of approval and fully comply with the relevant standards and guidelines.

ESD properties at a glance

The ESD specification of the Klöber Mera task chair provides protection from harmful electrostatic discharge. Two strategies are in action here: firstly the contact surfaces are conductive thanks to special upholstery fabrics, paint and materials. This prevents the user from accumulating a static charge. Secondly the Mera ESD earths any electrical charge by conducting it away slowly through the entire structure of the chair. It’s important that the antistatic chair is used with a suitable – i.e. conductive – floor covering.

The measured result is below the required limit 1 x 109 Ω in accordance with DIN EN 61340-5-1 for ESD-protection elements.

Mera ESD. even high-tech experts are grounded.

Every ESD chair is tested before shipping. A test voltage of 100 V is used to measure the conductive resistance of every potential contact surface. The result is recorded in the test report provided with every chair.
