Glossary: Heel Straps

Heel GrounderMade of conductive material, heel grounding straps cup the heels of the shoes. An attached ribbon tucks into the sock, making contact with the skin, forming an electrical bond or bridge between the wearer’s body and the carbon veins in the static-dissipative or conductive floor, discharging static to ground.

Used in conjunction with floors—such as static-dissipative or conductive vinyl—that are not made of low-charge-generating materials, grounded heel straps prevent static from accumulating when people walk.

(Some people tuck the conductive ribbon into their shoes, as opposed to the socks, in which case the ribbon makes contact with the sweat inside the shoes.)
