What Are Our Services?
Have you been asked to specify static free, conductive or anti static flooring? Are you confused about jargon like mission critical, low static generating, N+1, ANSI/ESD S20.20 or the difference between static dissipative floors and conductive floors?
Staticworx® can help you identify the right static resistant rating, select the correct static flooring option, and get it installed by a local professional who understands grounding, conductive flooring adhesives, ESD floor testing. We can even supply your building service contractor with maintenance recommendations and the necessary static free floor care products - no matter what floor you own.
What Is ESD Flooring?
Let's start with the definition of ESD: ESD is an abbreviation for electrostatic discharge: the pulse of static electricity that occurs when a charged person contacts another object. Anything from sliding out of a car seat or walking across a static generating floor can build up a dangerous charge. Most associate a static discharge with that sensory "ouch" that we feel and see; the zap, the mini bolt of blue lightening. However, the majority of static discharges, anything below 3500 volts, are totally undetectable to humans. Like common cold germs, ESD events are occurring around us constantly, causing damage to sensitive microelectronics inside computers and electronic devices.
The best way to avoid ESD events is to prevent static generation in the first place. In the case of ESD, an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure. If the environment prevents static generation, it's impossible for an ESD event to occur. A static free environment is created by eliminating normal static generating surfaces like carpet, rubber and tile. We loosely define those surfaces as ESD flooring. Other common names are anti static flooring, static flooring, conductive tile, static resistant flooring, non-static flooring, and grounded floors.
Visit our Knowledge and Safety Center to learn how to more accurately describe these floors so you don't mistakenly specify a material that will increase static. Also, read more about correct grounding methods for ESD floors and Tile using copper grounding strips.
What Is Anti Static Flooring?
Define: anti static flooring: The term anti static refers to a condition where static generation is inhibited during contact and separation with a different material. Anti static flooring can either be static dissipative or static conductive. (See also, Dissipative Tile)
